Gifts of appreciated securities or real estate are popular alternatives to cash gifts. Such gifts generate a double tax benefit. You receive an income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the property while avoiding capital gains taxes.
A gift of tangible personal property such as books, equipment, furniture and so on may be deductible up to the full fair market value of the property if it satisfies the “related use” standard and is documented by a qualified appraisal.
A planned gift commitment provides the opportunity to make significant gifts while maintaining financial responsibilities. It affords you the opportunity to formalize estate planning, retain income with tax benefits, increase income for yourself and/or your beneficiaries and realize estate and capital gains tax savings.
An honor gift is an especially significant recognition of an esteemed family member, colleague, friend or mentor. Contributions are made in the name of this significant individual to commemorate the impact they have on the donor’s life. It can be an outright contribution or an endowed gift that will recognize the honoree in perpetuity. Honor gifts can also be made to celebrate a special occasion or event.
A memorial gift is established in tribute to a special person and usually expresses condolence for the loss of a loved one or friend.
