Additional Ways to Give
Gifts of Stock
Donations of appreciated securities (stocks, bonds and mutual funds held at least one year) make wonderful gifts to our foundation. You avoid capital gain tax and support our mission at the same time.
IRA Qualified Charitable Contributions
These donations were made permanent by Congress in 2015. If you are 70 ½, gifts of up to $100,000 are permitted as direct transfers to a qualified charity from your IRA. These gifts can automatically satisfy your minimum distribution.
You may name the foundation as a beneficiary of all or a portion of a life insurance policy. Contact your agent to arrange for this simple and efficient way to add to your legacy.
