An Example of How It Works
Robert and Carol treasure the financial help they've been able to give their children and Albion College over the years. The couple recently updated their will to leave stocks and real estate to their kids. They left Albion College a $75,000 IRA to be transferred following their lifetime. Because Albion College is tax-exempt, all $75,000 will help support our mission.
If Robert and Carol had left the IRA to their children, approximately $18,000* would have gone to pay federal income taxes—leaving only $57,000 for their family's use. Robert and Carol are happy knowing they are making the most of their hard-earned money thanks to their updated estate plan.
