Tools & Resources

Guide to Non-cash Assets

While cash is the most common charitable donation, your clients may not be aware of the advantages of donating other assets, such as life insurance or real estate. Explore the many types of gifts that can be made to start or grow a fund, or download the materials to share with your clients.

Federal Tax ID Number

The Federal Tax ID Number/Employer Identification Number (EIN) for the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation, Incorporated is 41-6031510.

Declaration of Intent for a Planned Gift

A declaration of intent is a simple way to indicate your client’s plan to leave a gift to the community. By informing us of this intent, your client will become a member of the Foundation’s North Star Society and receive special opportunities and recognition.

Sample Testamentary Language

Here is some sample language to include a gift in your client’s will. Please also contact a gift planner to establish a fund agreement with us and discuss your client’s specific situation. A fund agreement must be in place in addition to using this language to ensure that your client’s wishes are fulfilled.

I devise and bequeath $_______ or ___ percent of my gross estate as determined for federal estate tax purposes to the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation, Incorporated (EIN: 41-6031510), to be held by it as a separate fund to be known as the _______________________ Fund (the “Fund”).

Planned Giving Illustrations

With our planned giving software, we can run illustrations on how different giving vehicles may have income and tax benefits for your clients. Contact us for an illustration on a charitable remainder trust or gift annuity.
