The Benefits of Charitable Giving with Stock

Ending the Year Well

If you are like most individuals, the value of your stock and other investments has grown over the years. Perhaps you are entering your retirement years and wondering how you can turn your highly appreciated asset into extra income.

You may also be concerned about the mounting capital gains taxes due. If you sell your stock in today’s market, you will forfeit a portion of the proceeds to taxes and that means less cash for you.

In short, you need a way to sell your stock and avoid capital gains. If you identify with any of these situations, the solution is a charitable stock plan.

A variety of charitable plans can help you achieve your goals for tax savings and even provide income.

You can make your special holiday gift with your:

IRA Charitable Rollover: A Sweet Choice

“If your IRA is life’s dessert, the thought of being forced to pay taxes on a distribution you would rather not take may leave a sour taste in your mouth. It does not have to.”
There is a sweeter choice. Rather than take the required minimum distribution, call your IRA administrator, and ask them to gift all or part of the RMD to Family Life Radio. Make sure the distribution comes directly to our mission and not to you.
When you do, you:
  • Do not pay income tax on the distribution
  • Satisfy your RMD up to $100,000
You contributed to and saved your IRA all your life. Do not let taxes spoil it. Use your IRA’s RMD to support the cause you love. Replace the disappointment of taxes with the delight of helping others.

Donor Advised Fund (DAF)

Are you looking for a simple, flexible tool that allows you to manage and maximize your giving to support the causes that matter most to you? Would you like to have the ability to make a single significant gift to support multiple charities? Are you interested in a way to simplify your annual and lifetime charitable giving?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should consider creating a donor advised fund (or DAF).

A way for a donor to give to charity over time. The fund is established with a charity and, after a donor contributes to the fund, the donor can make charitable gifts directly from the fund each year. The donor is entitled to take a deduction in the year contributions are made to the fund.
