Gifts of cash or electronic money transfers are the most convenient, simple and direct way to give. Cash or electronic money transfer gifts are fully deductible up to 50 percent of your Adjusted Gross Income (AGI). Amounts given over and above this limit can be carried forward and deducted for up to five years beyond the year you make your gift.
2. Bond or Securities
You may receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of long-term capital gains assets that you contribute, such as stocks and mutual funds held for more than one year. Since the Foundation liquidates the securities, you pay no tax on the sale, and the full value of your gift is available to support your charitable interests.
3. Real Estate
Real estate gifts, such as your home, farm or vacation property, entitle you to a charitable income tax deduction up to the full fair market value of the property, not to exceed 30 percent of your AGI. Plus, you avoid paying any capital gains tax on the property’s appreciated value.
4. Other Tangible Personal Property
Gifts of personal property, such as works of art, clothing, collectibles or jewelry, may offer beneficial charitable deductions. Contact our Development Staff to discuss making this type of gift arrangement.
