Federal employees pledge $270 million annually to support local, national and international community-service needs.To help build champions on and off the pitch with your CFC contribution, designate USA Rugby, CFC #10585, on your campaign pledge card.

Memorial and Honorary Gifts

If your life or the life of someone close to you has been profoundly impacted through rugby, consider making a gift to honor that person.An outright gift can help fund our immediate needs or an upcoming project. The financial benefits include an income tax deduction and possible elimination of capital gains tax.Another alternative is to include a bequest in your will or living trust stating that a specific asset, certain dollar amount or (more commonly) a percentage of your estate will pass to us at your death in honor of your loved one.Whichever method you choose, you have the ability to endow your gift so that it lasts forever. Endowments are structured so that you designate the purpose of your gift. Your gift is invested with and becomes part of our endowment and a distribution is made each year. Because the principal remains intact, the fund will support our mission in perpetuity.

Bequest

Making a bequest is one of the easiest ways to make a lasting and meaningful gift to USA Rugby. Bequests can also benefit you, the donor. You can often avoid estate tax through this type of gift.Including the USA Rugby in your estate plan is easy. Ask your estate-planning professional to include the following language in your will:"I, [name], of [city, state, ZIP], give, devise and bequeath to USA Rugby [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] for its unrestricted use and purpose."
