Gifts of Stock: Gifts of stock are a great way to support The Learning Community, and can offer significant savings and tax benefits. Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of stock. You may also save on brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock. Consult your tax advisor for details, and reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to make a donation of stock.
Workplace Giving: Does your organization offer workplace giving opportunities? There are simple, effective ways to donate, such as an automated Payroll Deduction. Matching Gift programs are also popular, where your employer may match funds to support employee volunteer hours or simply match employee’s philanthropic gifts.
Legacy Giving & Bequests: Charitable bequests help you make an impact now and in the future. There are certain benefits of making a bequest, including lower tax rates on inheritances for your heirs, reduced capital gains taxes on your bequests, and avoid complications for your heirs.
