IRAs are ideal assets from which to make charitable gifts. Up to $100,000 annually can be distributed tax-free for those at least 70½ years old.

Securities such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds, can provide tax advantages, as their full fair market value can be a charitable deduction and donors also can avoid capital gains taxes. For instructions on how to transfer stock click HERE.

Closely-held stock
Closely-held stock in a business also can be an effective way to achieve philanthropic goals in a tax-efficient manner.

Bequests, naming the foundation in your will, trust or beneficiary designation, can provide a legacy of charitable support.

Life insurance
Life insurance through a gift of a policy no longer needed, provides support as well as a potential charitable tax deduction. Donors can also name the foundation as a life insurance beneficiary.
