Gifts of Securities
Gifts of appreciated securities may offer substantial tax advantages to you, including the forgiveness of the tax on capital gain and an income-tax charitable deduction for the fair market value of the security. If you itemize your federal income deductions, you also may receive a federal income tax charitable deduction (up to 30% of your adjusted gross income with a five-year carryover) for the security’s full fair market value, if you have held it for longer than 12 months. Speak with your financial advisor; then, if you’re ready to make a gift of securities, call us at 516-621-0552.
A donation to CAPS through your will, a charitable gift annuity, a gift of life insurance, a pooled income fund, or a charitable trust can be part of a sound financial plan. Here are some options to discuss with your financial advisor:
Show your support by naming CAPS as a beneficiary in your will.
- Life Income Gift
By irrevocably transferring some assets to CAPS today, you may be able to receive income for life.
- Gift of Life Insurance
If you have a life insurance policy you no longer need, you can donate the policy to CAPS.
- Pooled Income Fund
A gift of cash, marketable securities or both can be invested together with similar gifts from other donors to CAPS.
- Charitable Lead Trust
If you have a very large estate, you may be able to create a charitable lead trust to benefit CAPS, and pass principal to your family with little or no tax penalty.
- Gifts of Retirement Plans
Your IRA assets can be transferred to a charitable remainder trust that may provide life income to the beneficiary, and an eventual gift to CAPS.
