Planned giving allows you to realize potential income and transfer tax savings, while helping to ensure the long-term success of Valley CAC. There are a variety of forms that your deferred gift can take, including charitable lead trusts, charitable remainder trusts, insurance beneficiary designations, charitable gift annuities, and other deferred-giving opportunities.
GIFTS OF APPRECIATED STOCK
Giving appreciated stock or mutual funds to Valley CAC gives you an extra tax benefit, because you can deduct the current value of the investment as a charitable contribution if you itemize, and you can also avoid paying capital-gains taxes on the profits. In contrast, you would owe capital-gains taxes if you sold the stock first and then gifted the proceeds to Valley CAC.
CHARITABLE IRA ROLLOVER
If you are over 70 1⁄2, you may be able to make tax-free charitable gifts of up to $100,000 annually directly from your IRA. To qualify for the charitable IRA rollover, a gift must be: (1) made by a donor age 70 1⁄2 or older, (2) transferred from the taxpayer’s traditional or Roth IRA directly to a permissible public charity, such as Valley CAC, and (3) completed during the applicable tax year. If your gift qualifies, the contribution will be excluded from your income and also count toward your required minimum distribution for the applicable tax year.
DONATE GOODS & SERVICES
Valley CAC greatly appreciates all the generous donations that we receive, often in the form of goods and services. We have had furniture, books, therapy supplies and other items given to our center, as well as auction items from companies for our events in the community. Services in legal, accounting, and contracting fields have also been received, reducing our operating experiences. Whatever your talent, we would be very grateful for any assistance you could provide!
