Many individuals have provided generously for charity in their wills. A designated bequest of cash, stock, real estate, furniture, artwork, pension benefits, closely-held stock etc is a simple way of providing for Shoot For A Cure while benefiting the donor’s tax savings. This form of donations is simple and will ultimately provide benefits to our charity.
Many donors (or their spouses) may serve on a board or work for a company with matching gift programs. If you work for such a company, your gifts could be increased substantially by the company’s match, which sometimes based on a ratio as high as 10-1. If your company does not participate in this sort of program, you may wish to encourage them to do so. When making a gift to Shoot For A Cure contact your company’s matching gift office to register and qualify your gift.
There are often substantial tax advantages available to the donor who pledges long-term securities. The donor avoids potential tax on the capital gain of the gifted property and any sales commission that would be payable on the sale of the assets. In addition, the donor receives a charitable deduction for the full, fair market value of such gift. Consultants from Shoot For A Cure will be pleased to discuss the most appropriate method of transfer with you and your financial advisors.
Many business professionals or frequent travelers acquire thousands of frequent miles over a lifetime. Often, these miles go unused, but could provide the operations of Shoot For A Cure a great benefit. Many airline carriers offer programs to donate these miles to a designated charity upon your request. Contact one of your airline representatives for instructions for making this type of gift.
