Gift of Annuities
You’d like to help, but need the income; or maybe you have a highly-appreciated stock that pays a low dividend, but don’t want to trigger the capital gains tax. Whether funded with cash or stock, a gift annuity will provide a handsome cash flow that may be partially tax-free! You’ll also get a partial tax deduction now.
Gifts of Stock
Do you have shares on long-term appreciated stock you might consider donating? You can simply transfer these shares directly to YVP Habitat . You’ll get a full tax deduction for the entire market value, avoid capital gains, and do your part in helping to create stronger communities.
Gifts of IRA Funds
Certain tax provisions allow individuals to make distributions from their IRA accounts directly to a charity without recognizing the distribution as income and is, therefore, not taxable.
