Gifts of Retirement Accounts
Upon your death, payments made from retirement accounts (pension plans, 401(k) and 403(b) plan assets, IRAs, and other forms of deferred compensation) to your designated beneficiaries will be taxed at their ordinary income tax rate.  Additionally, funds remaining in retirement accounts may be subject to estate taxes.  By naming the District of Columbia School of Law Foundation as beneficiary of your retirement account(s), you may avoid these income and estate taxes.  This type of a bequest is simple to complete. Just request beneficiary designation forms from your plan administrator and name the District of Columbia School of Law Foundation on the form.

District of Columbia School of Law Foundation Tax ID: 52-1863674

For more information about making a gift to the Foundation, contact Jaye Lopez Van Soest, CFRE at 202-274-5401 or
