Gift of Appreciated Securities – A tax deduction for a gift of securities (corporate stock, bonds or mutual funds) may be greater than a cash gift provide your base (the amount you paid) is lower than its current appreciated value.
Real Estate – By giving real estate you avoid the difficulties of selling property and paying capital gains taxes. Our research must indicate that we can sell the property.
Long Term Investments That Pay Income To Donors – Trusts can be established where you as donor can receive income during your lifetime and at the same time provide income to the Foundation. Various trust gifts allow donors to receive a major tax-deduction for establishing charitable trusts. Please consult your legal and financial advisor.
