Have you considered other, non-cash gift options? Appreciated assets (stocks, bonds, mutual fund shares, etc.) can be given just like cash.
Gifts of appreciated assets should be transferred directly rather than sold. If sold, you would have to pay capital gains taxes.
By making a charitable gift via direct transfer, you avoid this tax. Plus, you will be eligible for a tax deduction equal to the full, fair market value of the stock.
You can also make a gift of personal property (real estate, automobiles, etc.). A simple transfer of title/deed can provide tax benefits for you and much needed resources for our ongoing ministry.
We can provide specific illustrations of how a gift of appreciated assets will benefit both you and the Foundation. We also have the information necessary to complete a direct stock transfer.
