PLANNED GIVING There are several planned giving options that will allow you to support the work of Skyler’s Gift and leave a lasting legacy while providing tax benefits to yourself or your family members.
Some common planned giving options are listed below. These gifts may be funded with cash, stock, equity, or property.
A BEQUEST in a donor’s will leaving a gift to Skyler’s Gift is the most common way to do this. It furthers the work of Skyler’s Gift while providing a tax benefit to the donor’s estate.
A CHARITABLE GIVING ANNUITY provides a structured way to give to Skyler’s Gift while securing your own future. A gift annuity purchaser secures immediate tax relief, in addition to a tax free post retirement income stream. The way this works is that in return for a lump sum gift contribution, you are guaranteed a steady income for the rest of your life, either immediate or deferred.
A CHARITABLE REMAINDER ANNUITY TRUST involves a donor placing a major gift of cash or property into a trust. The trust then pays a fixed amount of income each year to Skyler’s Gift, the donor, or the donor’s specified beneficiary. When the donor dies, the remainder of the trust is transferred to Skyler’s Gift. Neither you nor the charity owes taxes on this transfer or upon the appreciation of the asset, thus avoiding all capital gains taxes.
Donating stocks, bonds, mutual funds and other securities contributes to the financial stability of Skyler’s Gift and can offer a significant tax saving for you. By giving stock, you can avoid capital gains tax on the increased value of the stock plus receive an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the stock rather than liquidating the stocks and donating the cash proceeds. A gift of appreciated mutual funds works in the same way. Contact your broker or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Skyler’s Gift Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
