Other Ways to Make Gifts

In today's world, gifts can be made in many different forms. Consult your tax advisor to assist with the best method for you based on your own individual tax bracket and situation.

Gifts of Appreciated Stock

Gifts of Appreciated Stock made to charities, including our organization, avoid capital gains tax altogether. You can deduct the market value of the securities, as a contribution, and pay no capital gains tax. Toqualify, the stock must be held for more than a year. It is important for you to donate the stock--don't sell it first! Please contact your tax adviser for guidance, and then call us at (952)470-1700 and ask for John.

Retirement Plan Gifts

Gifts made from Retirement Accounts can be made without taxable liability to you or your heirs in an inheritance situation. If you are over 70½, special provisions make it possible to make tax-free gifts up to $100,000 directly from an IRA. This provision is scheduled to expire at the end of 2013. Contact your tax adviser for individual guidance.

Living Will or Trust Gifts

Recent changes in estate tax law have made it easier to grant charitable gifts both now and later through your will, Life Insurance Policy or other future estate plans.
