Leave an Iowa State Fair Legacy in 5 Minutes

October 11, 2017

In less time than it takes to brew a pot of coffee, you can make a lasting impact at the Iowa State Fair Blue Ribbon Foundation. One of the easiest gifts you can make is to name the Foundation as a beneficiary of one of your assets, such as your retirement plan or life insurance policy. This is a popular gift to give because you can set it up by yourself. There’s no need to use the services of an attorney or financial advisor to put your gift in place.

Simple Steps to Follow:
1. Contact the administrator of your retirement plan, insurance policy or bank account for a change-of-beneficiary form or simply download a form from your provider’s website.
2. Decide what percentage of the account you wish to give to the Blue Ribbon Foundation and name us, along with the stated percentage, on the form.
3. Sign and return the form to your plan administrator or insurance company.
4. Tell us about your gift! It would be our honor to thank you for your support. Plus, your generosity can inspire others to follow your example.

Key Benefit: Beneficiary designations offer built-in peace of mind. Your current budget isn’t affected because you make the gift after your lifetime, and you can change your mind at any time.

No matter the size, your gift makes a meaningful difference at the Iowa State Fair Blue Ribbon Foundation. Contact Robin Taylor at (515) 262-3111 x373 to learn more about giving a gift that doesn’t cost you anything today. If you’ve already made a gift, please let us know so we can thank you for your generosity and ensure that your gift is used exactly as you intend.

Or maybe you have considered becoming a member of an exclusive group of Iowa State Fair donors through our membership or giving programs. The Blue Ribbon Foundation’s fundraiser programs allow you to join a community of generosity and get even closer with the Fair that you know and love. You can join the 1854 Society or Jake’s Club and enjoy the incentives during the 2018 Iowa State Fair.

There is always the opportunity to commemorate your favorite State Fair moment with an engraved brick, paver or a plaque on the newest giving wall in Ruan Plaza. Check out all the Foundation’s giving programs on our website.
