Q. WHY WOULD I DONATE SECURITIES?
A donation of securities or mutual funds is the most efficient way to give charitably. Since capital gains taxes don't apply, our charity receives the full fair market value when the security is sold, and you get a tax receipt which reﬂects your larger contribution. This allows you to give more and get more.
Q. WHAT IS PLANNED GIVING?
A planned gift is a contribution that is arranged in the present and allocated at a future date. Commonly donated through a will or a life insurance policy.
