Ways to Give Later

The Denver Psychoanalytic Society Fund was established to support all of the scientific, educational and community service activities of the Denver Psychoanalytic Society. With the establishment of this fund, we are able to accept tax deductible, charitable contributions as a 501 (c) 3 organization.  Contributions of any amount are welcome.

By making a contribution to The Denver Psychoanalytic Society, you are contributing to the creation and advancement of educational opportunities and to the expansion of the awareness and understanding of psychoanalytic and psychodynamic concepts.  You are supporting the educational programs open to all members of the community on psychoanalytic subjects making psychoanalytic understanding accessible, and you promote intellectual discussion that demonstrate the relevance of psychoanalytic and psychodynamic understanding to every day life.


Planned giving is the thoughtful process of arranging a gift, focusing your philanthropic goals, and maximizing your tax savings and estate benefits. It is a gift that may be arranged in the present and received in the future to support our mission.  It is a simple and affordable way to leave your lasting legacy to the Denver Psychoanalytic Society.

Wills & Trusts

Planning for the future and creating the legacy you wish to leave is one of the most effective ways to ensure a lasting impact. Making a gift in your will or living trust can guarantee that your legacy endures.

Your gift may be a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate or the remainder after all other provisions are specified.

To the right is suggested language to take to your attorney for use in drafting your bequest.

Residual Gift Language

A residual bequest comes to us after your estate expenses and specific bequests are paid.


"I give and devise to The Denver Psychoanalytic Society Fund, located in Aurora, Colorado, all (or state a percentage) of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, to be used for its general support" (or for the support of a specific fund or program).

Specific Gift Language

A specific gift bequest states an amount or percentage of your gift.


"I give and devise to The Denver Psychoanalytic Society Fund, a non-profit, charitable organization organized under Colorado law, located at 1890 N. Revere Court, Room 4118, Aurora, CO 80045, tax ID 31-1581761, the sum of $___________ (or asset) to be used for its general support" (or for the support of a specific fund or program).


Contingent Gift Language

The Denver Psychoanalytic Society Fund can be named as a contingent beneficiary in your will or personal trust if one or more of your specific bequests cannot be fulfilled.


"If (insert name) is not living at the time of my demise, I give and devise to The Denver Psychoanalytic Society Fund of Aurora, Colorado, the sum of $ _______ (or all or a percentage of the residue of my estate) to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific fund or program).


Beneficiary Designations 

A simple way to make a legacy gift is to name a charitable organization a beneficiary of a retirement plan, life insurance, brokerage account or any account requiring a beneficiary.

A beneficiary designation is advantageous to you because the IRS will want to collect the tax due on all pre-tax accounts, up to 70% of a plan’s value lost to taxes . If you left this money to an heir, they will be responsible for paying the tax, whereas a nonprofit is tax exempt. It is better for you to leave the cash and securities to your heir, or at least reduce the amount of tax your heir would owe by making your nonprofit donations from your pre-tax accounts.

Retirement Plans

Your IRA, 401k, 403b, SEP IRA, KEOGH or other retirement plan is a practical way to leave a legacy. You can name the Denver Psychoanalytic Society Fund a full or partial beneficiary on a “change of beneficiary form.” This allows you to plan for what you feel you can afford now, and make adjustments in the future.


Life Insurance

You can leave a legacy by donating a paid-up insurance policy you may have outgrown, or by naming the Denver Psychoanalytic Society Fund as a beneficiary. Life insurance paid to a charity is not subject to Federal estate tax and you may receive a tax deduction for premium payments.
