Ways to Give

Outright Gifts of Cash or Securities

An outright gift in the form of cash permits an immediate impact as well as a federal income tax deduction. Gifts of stock, long-term appreciated securities and/or from a IRA Charitable Rollover (individuals 70½ can donate up to $100,000 to charitable organizations directly from their IRA, without treating the distribution as taxable income) may offer additional benefits.

Together we can make a difference!
