What a better way to increase the impact of your gift by contacting your employer to see if they have a Matching Gift Program. Many local companies offer this program to both current and retired employees.
A Gift in Your Will or Living Trust
A charitable gift from your estate through your will is called a bequest. By specifying a dollar amount or percentage of money, you may be able to receive a federal estate tax charitable deduction.
IRA Charitable Distribution
Donors who are 70 ½ or older often are able to enjoy some additional tax advantages by making their gift to Network directly from their IRA. If you meet these criteria, you can transfer up to $100,000 annually without having to recognize the distribution as income. In addition, this type of charitable gift directly from your IRA can be counted toward satisfying your required minimum distribution for the year, as long as certain rules are met. Please be sure to have an IRA charitable distribution reach Network by mid-December for inclusion in year-end giving.
You can name Network as the beneficiary of your retirement plan assets, life insurance policy, or bank account(s).
When you make a gift of appreciated securities like stocks, bonds or mutual funds, you may reduce, or even eliminate, your federal capital gains taxes on the transfer. Network accepts gifts of publicly traded or privately held securities. Stocks and bonds will be sold as soon as practical after being received.
A gift of real estate can be made to Network without touching your bank account. Appreciated property, held longer than one year may qualify as a charitable deduction; and you avoid paying a capital gains tax.
Please be sure to consult with a financial advisor to see how these giving options apply to your situation. For general questions about these options and Network’s gift acceptance policy, please contact Tina Floyd, Director of Development & Marketing at email@example.com or 972-662-8595
