A cash gift is the most popular type of charitable gift because of its simplicity.
Stock, Bonds & Mutual Funds
Gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds and mutual funds result in a charitable deduction for the full market value of your donated property – even if you bought it for far less. You will also avoid capital gains tax – money you would have to pay if you liquidated your holdings.

You may name the Community Foundation as sole beneficiary or transfer ownership and receive a tax deduction for the policy’s cash value. If you are still making premium payments to keep the policy current, they may also qualify for a deduction.
Closely Held Stock
Donating the closely held stock of your business to the Community Foundation offers you a charitable deduction for the appraised fair market value and an avoidance of capital gain tax. At a later date, your company may redeem the stock at its fair market value or it can be sold outright.
Whether it is a home, building or land, we can help you turn this asset into a charitable gift. We can accept the gift outright or set up a trust that will convert it into a gift that also produces income for you.
