The International Swimming Hall of Fame would not exist without the generosity of generations of donors, which means the future of ISHOF rests on your shoulders. From small denominations to big dollars, every gift matters, and your participation sends a message that you understand, are grateful for and want to be part of the history of swimming.

In addition to its One in A Thousand program, monthly, and one-time donations, ISHOF now has Planned Giving options for donations.

Planned Giving works in a variety of ways.

Gifts from Your Will or Trust

How It Works

  • Include a gift to The International Swimming Hall of Fame in your will or trust.
  • Make your bequest unrestricted or direct it to a specific purpose.
  • Indicate a specific amount or a percentage of the balance remaining in your estate or trust.
  • Tell us about your gift so we may celebrate your generosity now!

Gifts That Pay You Income

Charitable Gift Annuity

A charitable gift annuity is a simple agreement between you and The International Swimming Hall of Fame. In exchange for a gift of cash or appreciated assets, you receive fixed payments for life

How It Works

  • You transfer cash or securities to The International Swimming Hall of Fame. Our minimum suggested gift requirement is $100,000.
  • The International Swimming Hall of Fame pays you, yourself and a spouse, or any two beneficiaries you name, fixed payments for life.
  • Beneficiaries are recommended to be at least 60 years of age at the time of the gift.
  • The remaining balance passes to ISHOF when the contract ends.

Gifts of Life Insurance

How It Works

  • You transfer ownership of a paid-up life insurance policy to The International Swimming Hall of Fame.
  • ISHOF elects to cash in the policy now or hold it.
  • Consider naming The International Swimming Hall of Fame in your long-term plans. It’s simple.

Gifts from your Retirement Plans

Here is a tax-smart way to make an impact on ISHOF using your traditional or inherited IRA. The IRA charitable rollover (also called the Qualified Charitable Distribution, or QCD) is a great way to make a tax-free gift to ISHOF and satisfy your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). If you are not required to take an RMD but no longer itemize your deductions, then a QCD may be right for you as well.

How It Works

  • Name or designate The International Swimming Hall of Fame as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), or other qualified retirement plan.
  • Pass the balance of your retirement assets to The International Swimming Hall of Fame by contacting your plan administrator.
  • Important! Tell ISHOF about your gift. Your plan administrator is not obligated to notify us, so if you don’t tell us, we may not know.
