While cash donations have always been the traditional way of giving, there are several alternative ways of contributing to SewHope’s mission, which can offer you significant tax benefits and broader impact.
1. Giving Stocks
or Appreciated Assets
Donating appreciated securities, such as stocks or bonds, is a tax-efficient way to support SewHope. When you transfer ownership of long-term holdings to SewHope, you receive a charitable deduction for their full market value and you incur no capital gains tax (subject to IRS deduction limits). This could mean significant tax savings for you while providing considerable support to our cause.
2. Qualified Charitable
If you are 70½ years old or older, you can give up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualified charity like SewHope without having to pay income taxes on the money. This is known as a qualified charitable distribution, or a QCD. A QCD counts toward your required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year, which can lower your income and taxes.
3. Grants from
A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a type of giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support SewHope. An increasingly popular charitable vehicle, DAFs are an excellent way to both simplify your charitable giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals.
