A CHANGE IN PLANS

A

llen Housh was prepared to spend his life as a high school agricultural vocational teacher. It was natural for him to prepare for a career in agriculture. The Garner, Iowa, native had been around the livestock business his entire life, and he went to Iowa State specifically to major in agricultural education. “I wanted to be able to get a job out of school and thought I would wind up teaching,” says Allen, a 1957 Iowa State graduate and current Edina, Minn., resident. The plan was on track during his senior year. He had interviewed with a couple of schools when he went to a career fair. A position with Cargill intrigued him but it was too late to sign up for a campus interview. But

“Agricultural education gave me a good foundation for my career.” — Allen Housh Allen’s career path was significantly altered when a college friend gave up his interview slot. “After that interview with Cargill, I was invited up to Minneapolis, and the rest, as they say, is history,” Allen says. “I spent 36 years with Cargill, so I guess it really worked out well.” Allen’s career at Cargill took him from Fort Dodge to Des Moines, Memphis, and finally Minneapolis where he retired as a corporate vice president for transportation. There he Continued on page 4

The Best Thing About the Holidays? The Joy of Helping Others

F

ew pleasures in life offer more personal satisfaction or endure longer than helping others live better lives. As you think about holiday gifts for family and friends, remember that making year-end charitable gifts can be one of your most heartwarming experiences.

Receive Tax Benefits In addition to the immense personal satisfaction you gain from knowing that your gifts help students and programs at ISU, you may also receive tax benefits. Depending on the gift arrangements you choose, you can reduce your income and future estate taxes; increase your spendable income; eliminate capital gains tax; and attain no-cost, worry-free asset management.

Timing Is Everything Make your gifts to the ISU Foundation by Dec. 31 and you will see a tax break for this year when you itemize deductions on your federal income tax return. To better help you plan, following is a breakdown of when your gift is considered complete.

5 Ways to Make a Difference in 2011 Give cash. Cash is an easy way to give each year and can be used to prepay a pledge. To document a cash gift of any amount, you must have a dated receipt from us. A cancelled check provides sufficient documentation only for gifts by check if they are less than $250.

• Cash contributions sent through the mail are usually deductible if they are postmarked on Dec. 31. • Securities are generally deductible on the date they are transferred (if done electronically) to our books — not the date you ask your broker to make the transfer. • Real estate gifts, in most states, are considered complete on the date a properly executed deed is delivered to us. • Tangible personal property gifts are complete once the property is delivered to us. • Life insurance gifts are considered complete on the date you sign the paperwork transferring ownership to the ISU Foundation, assuming you properly forward the form on to the insurance company.

How This Benefits You • The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you don’t have to itemize to take advantage of this opportunity.

• The transfer may count against your unsatisfied required minimum distribution from your IRA. • You can see firsthand the difference your philanthropic dollars make to our students, faculty, and staff. Note: The legislation does not permit direct transfers to charitable trusts, donor advised funds, charitable gift annuities, or supporting organizations.

In addition, this opportunity applies only to IRAs and not other types of retirement plans.

NEXT STEP Don’t let this tax-wise opportunity pass you by. If you have a question or would like to make a gift, please feel free to contact us. To learn more, visit www.foundation.iastate.edu/ira. We look forward to hearing from you.

When it came time for Allen to establish a scholarship at Iowa State, he knew exactly the area he wanted to support. Allen and his wife, Jean, have created the Housh Scholarship for Agricultural Education and Studies. “I wanted to continue the relationship I had already established at Iowa State in agricultural education,” he explains. “I had done really well in this area while I was a student, and I thought it was important to follow up by establishing a scholarship in that discipline. “Agricultural education gave me a good foundation for my career, and hopefully this scholarship will help Iowa State students in their career paths.” The Housh Scholarship was established through an initial gift and has been awarded to students majoring in agricultural education since 2004.

>>

The couple has also ensured that the scholarship will continue in perpetuity, thanks to a deferred gift of IRA assets. “The most logical thing we could do with the IRA was to give it away rather than have our estate pay taxes on it,” Allen says. “I guess philanthropy is in my blood,” he adds. “My dad was very civic-minded and my mom was also philanthropic. It felt really good to be able to do this for today’s and future students of Iowa State.”
