Marketable Securities that have risen in value since their purchase often make attractive gift vehicles. For donors, a contribution of appreciated securities may result in substantial IRS tax benefits in the form of charitable deductions and avoidance of capital gains taxes.
Stock which has been held over one year and has increased in value are subject to capital gains tax when sold. By donating a gift you avoid tax on the gain. Also, your contribution deduction is equal to the stock’s full fair market value.
Generally, the amount is deductible up to 30% of your adjusted gross income.
The benefits available to you when making a contribution of stock or mutual funds may include:
Avoiding federal and state tax on the capital gain.
Receiving an income tax deduction (federal and most states) for the full market value of your gift if you itemize deductions on your tax return and have held the assets one year or longer.
Making a larger gift at a lower original cost to you.
Special regulations apply to gifts of closely held securities and appreciated properties.
We encourage you to consult your financial adviser and MARCH Inc. when considering such gifts.
Please contact us for a Stock Power Form, and Bond Power Form.
A variety of giving plans are available which allow you to make a charitable gift to us, but continue to enjoy income from your assets. You may create a charitable remainder trust by transferring cash, securities or other property to a trustee (usually a bank), which pays yearly an amount to your chosen beneficiary or yourself for a term of up to 20 years or for life. The trust pays out a fixed dollar amount (Annuity Trust) or a percentage of the trust as valued annually (Unitrust). The specific dollar amount (Annuity Trust) or percentage payment (Unitrust) is determined when the trust is established. Upon the death of the chosen beneficiary of beneficiaries, MARCH Inc. receives the remaining value of that trust. You receive an important and immediate income tax deduction for creating either type of trust and, in some instances, you are not required to pay an immediate capital gains tax if appreciated property is used to fund the trust.
Giving life insurance to a charity is convenient and often allows you to give more than otherwise possible. For example, you can give a paid-up policy or purchase a single premium policy with MARCH Inc. as the owner and beneficiary, or add MARCH Inc. as a beneficiary to an existing policy.
You may want to make a charitable contribution above and beyond what you are able to contribute on an annual basis. A practical way to accomplish this is to make a gift through a will by bequest. You may indicate that MARCH Inc. receives a specific sum of money, or a particular piece of property or real estate. You may also indicate that MARCH Inc. would benefit only if other named beneficiaries do not survive you. Your legal counsel can advise you of how to provide for these gifts in your will.
Rather than give a cash gift, you also have the option of donating in-kind gifts. Contact us to get a list of immediate needs. Some of our properties need to be maintained, roofs repaired, and donated properties need to be upgraded to meet increasing special access requirements.
