More Ways to Donate

Gifts of Cash or Cash Equivalents

These can either be paid outright in a single installment or as a pledge to be fulfilled over a period of several years. A cash gift may entitle the donor to a charitable deduction of up to 50% of adjusted gross income annually, with a carry-over provision of up to five years should the value of the gift exceed 50% of the individual donor’s adjusted gross income. Please consult your individual tax advisor to determine how much of your contribution is deductible.

 

Gifts of Appreciated Securities

These types of gifts offer donors a range of potential benefits such as the avoidance of capital gains taxes when the securities have been held long-term — that is, for more than one year. Such gifts are deductible up to 30% of adjusted gross income annually, with a carry-over provision of up to five years should the value of the gift exceed 30% of the donor’s adjusted gross income. For more information, contact us or call 646-227-3526. Please consult your individual tax advisor to determine how much of your contribution is deductible.
