IRA Charitable Rollover – A Permanent Giving Option
Many donors feel that the direct transfer of funds from an IRA is a great way to donate, and now it’s a permanent option.
Here’s how it works:
Donor-Advised Funds: You may transfer funds from your Donor-Advised Fund to Greater Rochester Habitat for Humanity.
Gifts of real estate: You may wish to transfer ownership of real estate to Greater Rochester Habitat for Humanity. In doing so, you remove the property from your estate and relieve yourself of any future management worries. In addition, you can deduct the appraised value of the property from your income tax liability and avoid capital gains tax liability. If interested in this type of gift, please contact Ethel Duble to discuss further.
Gifts of stock: Stocks, bonds, and mutual funds that have appreciated in value are among the best ways to help. You may receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value of the stock (up to a maximum of 30% of your adjusted gross income) and avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the value of the stock.
Cash: This type of gift is simple and eligible for a charitable tax deduction when you file your taxes.
