The Many Ways of Giving

Gifts /Pledges

Commitments may be paid over a five-year period. Spreading out the payment terms of your investment (annual, semi-annual, or quarterly), provides flexibility and may help you consider a higher level of support.

Appreciated Assets

A gift of an appreciated asset, often common stock or mutual fund shares, is a valuable way to contribute to a charitable organization and receive tax benefits based on the value of the asset(s). Because of the appreciation factor, gifts of securities “cost” donors less than equivalent gifts made in cash. By donating the stock, the charity receives a larger gift than it would receive if the investor first sold the stock and then donated the proceeds after deducting the capital gain taxes. The investor receives a greater tax deduction by giving the stock directly to the charity and avoiding the capital gain tax.
