Tax-Wise Giving: Donating Stock

A charitable gift of stock may yield double tax benefits and additional savings,  and more benefits than a cash gift. When you make a gift of stock to NLHHC, by eliminating the capital gains tax that would be due upon selling the stock, you receive tangible tax-savings and benefits while also supporting  our mission. A gift of stock may be right for you if:

1. You are holding stocks that have risen in value. If your stocks are highly appreciated, you may find yourself with a hefty tax bill when it comes time to sell. By using these securities as a gift, you can avoid the capital gains tax on any paper profit.

2. You would like to maximize your deduction while not affecting your liquidity. If you decide to make a gift of stock, you not only retain your cash assets, but you also receive a charitable tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock that you’ve owned for more than one year.

A charitable lead trust (CLT) allows you to distribute income to your charitable fund for a period of years or during your lifetime, then the assets return to you or a surviving family members. This charitable instrument allows you to make a gift to a charity and transfer assets to family members while saving taxes.

IRA and Retirement Plan Assets

A qualifying charitable distribution allows you to donate up to $100,000 per year directly to a qualifying charity from your IRA and exclude it from your income. The qualifying charitable distribution must go directly from your IRA to your chosen charitable organization. You can use this qualified charitable distribution to satisfy your annual Required Minimum Distribution from your retirement account. If you are 70 1/2 or older, this is a charitable giving tool to consider. The portiion of your RMD that you donate to charity reduces your Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) dollar for dollar.
