Leaving A Legacy - Endowment
The Mainstream Living Reno Berg Endowment has been created in honor of Reno Berg, who spent 36 years as CEO shaping our organization while anticipating and meeting the emerging needs of people with disabilities. Reno passed away on May 6, 2021. This endowment is a lasting tribute to his efforts; taking today's funds to anticipate tomorrow's needs. Our Endowment falls under the umbrella of the Story County Community Foundation and the Greater Des Moines Community Foundation, which affords donors additional tax benefits.
There are a variety of ways you can give to the Mainstream Living Reno Berg Endowment, and each method would be accompanied by the appropriate tax advantage. Gift types include: cash, identification as a beneficiary of an insurance policy, a gift of real estate, a charitable gift annuity, the transfer of stock, a memorial gift, and naming of the Mainstream Living Reno Berg Endowment in a will. If you are an Iowa taxpayer, your gift may qualify for a 25% Endow Iowa Tax Credit, in addition to the normal federal charitable income tax deductions.
