Other Ways to Support our Work

Thank you for choosing to contribute to the Spanda Foundation.

in a number of ways, including the following:

Gifts of Stock
Gifts of appreciated stock can benefit the Spanda Foundation while providing
substantial tax benefits for the donor. If you contribute appreciated stock,
you pay no capital gains tax upon the transfer of the stock and receive
an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair market value
of the stock on the date of the gift.
There are two ways to make stock gifts:

By wire transfer
Please provide your broker with the following information:
Account Holder: Stichting Spanda
Account Number: 468265236
IBAN: NL06ABNA0468265236   BIC: ABNANL2A
The Spanda Foundation Tax ID is 8149.79.075

Please notify Spanda Foundation when a transfer is made, providing the donor's name and information regarding the type of stock and number of shares. This helps the Spanda Foundation to ensure that the transfer is completed successfully and properly credited to the donor. Thank you.

By mail
Send your unendorsed stock certificates by registered mail to:
Spanda Foundation
Office of Development
Laan van Meerdervoort 70
NL-2517AN The Hague, Netherlands.
In a separate envelope, to the same address, mail your
signed stock powers with a cover letter stating that you wish to donate
the securities to Spanda Foundation. In either case, be sure to notify the
Foundation that you are making a stock transfer so that your gift
can be properly acknowledged and credited.

Planned Gifts
You can leave a meaningful legacy through a planned gift to the Spanda Foundation that will strengthen the capacity of people throughout the world
to meet the challenges of global interdependence . Planned gifts allow you to provide long-term support for Spanda Foundation while retaining control
of assets or increasing liquidity for yourself
and/or loved ones during your lifetimes.

Those who give planned charitable donations enjoy the satisfaction of advancing the long-term goals of Spanda Foundation. They also enjoy the financial benefits which flow from sound investment and estate planning; these may include an increased stream of income, immediate income tax deduction, reduced estate taxes, and/or reduced capital gains taxes on appreciated assets.

Examples of planned charitable donations include:

A gift by Will that designates a specific portion or asset of your estate
to pass to Spanda Foundation.
The simplest way to make a gift is to remember the Spanda Foundation in your Will or Trust. To do this, simply list amount or fraction of your estate that you would like to leave as a bequest along with our full legal contact information: Stichting Spanda (Spanda Foundation) with headquarters at
Laan van Meerdervoort 70, 2517AN The Hague, Netherlands.

Charitable Gift Annuity
Governed by a simple agreement, a gift annuity provides a guaranteed stream of income - some of which may be tax-free - to you and/or a loved one for your lifetimes in exchange for your gift. The rate of income is based on your age - the older you are, the higher the annuity rate. The amount remaining passes to Spanda Foundation.
A gift annuity may be funded with cash or securities that have a minimum value of $5,000 and may have up to two beneficiaries the older the beneficiaries, the higher the rate of return. Both beneficiaries must be at least age 50 to begin receiving annuity payments.
  Charitable Remainder Trusts
When you set up a charitable remainder trust, you establish a percentage or dollar amount of income that you will receive each year for your lifetime or a designated period of years, at the end of which the assets remaining in the trust would pass to Spanda Foundation.
The annual rate of income from the trust is a percentage or amount that is agreed upon when the trust is established (minimum 5% of the original value of the assets used to fund the trust). A trust for which Spanda Foundation will serve as trustee may be funded with cash, securities, or other appreciated assets with a minimum value of $100,000.

The Spanda Foundation can be named as the primary, secondary, or partial beneficiary of an individual retirement account on the beneficiary designation form for that account. By including the Stichting Spanda (Spanda Foundation), Laan van Meerdervoort 70, 2517AN The Hague, Netherlands on your beneficiary designation form along with the Foundation tax identification number, 8149.79.075, you can name the Spanda Foundation to receive these assets directly. Please consult your attorney or tax advisor to determine how best to structure a gift in this manner.

Life Insurance
You can name the Spanda Foundation as a beneficiary (and owner, if you choose) of an existing life insurance policy. Policies can also be purchased to benefit Spanda Foundation.
You can contribute all or part of an insurance policy, which you currently own, but no longer need. The Spanda Foundation can be designated as a beneficiary of a whole life, universal, or other permanent life insurance policy. Additionally, if you wish to name the Foundation as owner of the policy, annual premiums become tax deductible.

 Honour/Memorial Gifts
Making your gift to Spanda Foundation in honour or in memory of someone special is a meaningful way to show you care. Complete the Honour/Memorial section of the Donation Form and mail to Spanda Foundation along with your contribution. A personalized letter will be sent as notification of your gift.

attorney when making any planned giving decisions.
