Donating appreciated securities is the most tax efficient way to give. It enables you to avoid capital gains tax in addition to benefiting from the charitable tax deduction. As a result, you can make a greater impact while saving more money on taxes. To make a stock contribution, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Give From Your IRA
Many donors over 70.5 years of age choose to give directly from their IRA, and receive tax benefits as they give. IRA giving helps you:
- Meet your Required Minimum Distribution — the minimum amount you are required to remove from your IRA, or else face hefty tax penalties
- Reduce your overall taxable income
- Make an immediate difference, and help to build a truly inclusive San Francisco!
