The gift of securities and mutual funds refers to a charitable donation made by transferring ownership of stocks, bonds, or mutual fund units directly to a charitable organization or foundation. Instead of donating cash, individuals can contribute these financial assets, which can have significant tax benefits for the donor.

Securities and mutual funds are investments that individuals hold in their portfolios. When someone donates these assets to a registered charity, they are not only supporting a charitable cause but also enjoying potential tax advantages.

The key benefits of gifting securities and mutual funds are as follows:

Tax Savings: Donating appreciated securities or mutual funds can result in tax benefits. By donating directly to a registered charity, the donor can avoid capital gains tax on the appreciated value of the assets. Additionally, they may receive a charitable tax receipt for the fair market value of the donated securities, which can be used to claim a tax deduction.

Increased Charitable Impact: Donating securities or mutual funds allows individuals to give more to the causes they care about without impacting their cash flow. It maximizes the impact of their charitable contribution, benefiting the chosen charity or foundation.

Simplified Giving Process: Gifting securities and mutual funds can be a straightforward process, facilitated by financial institutions or brokerage firms. Once the transfer is complete, the charitable organization can sell the assets and utilize the proceeds to support their programs and initiatives.

Gifts through estates refer to charitable contributions made as part of an individual’s estate planning and testamentary arrangements. When someone decides to leave a portion of their assets, such as money, property, or other valuable items, to a charitable organization or foundation in their will, it is considered a gift through their estate.

Through estate planning, individuals can leave a lasting legacy by supporting the causes they are passionate about. This type of giving enables individuals to support charitable organizations beyond their lifetime, leaving a positive impact on the community and causes they cared about during their life.

Estate gifts can take various forms, such as a specific bequest (a fixed sum or specific asset), a residual bequest (a percentage of the estate after other bequests and expenses), or a contingent bequest (activated only if certain conditions are met).

Gifts of securities, mutual funds, and estates are powerful ways for individuals to make a difference and leave a lasting impact on the causes they hold dear. By incorporating charitable giving into their financial and estate plans, individuals can create a meaningful legacy that supports their community and helps create positive change for future generations.

An employee giving program, also known as workplace giving or payroll giving, is a corporate initiative that allows employees to donate a portion of their salary or wages to charitable organizations or causes of their choice directly from their paycheck. It is typically set up and facilitated by the employer in collaboration with selected charitable organizations.

Through an employee giving program, employees have the opportunity to make regular contributions to the causes they are passionate about, providing them with an easy and convenient way to support charitable organizations. The donations are deducted from the employee’s paycheck before taxes, which can offer potential tax benefits for the donor.

Employers often match a percentage of their employees’ contributions, doubling the impact of their charitable giving. This matching incentive encourages more employees to participate in the program and can significantly increase the overall donations to various charities.

Employee giving programs not only benefit the charitable organizations receiving the contributions but also promote a sense of community and social responsibility within the workplace. Employees feel empowered and engaged knowing that their employer supports their philanthropic efforts and contributes to the betterment of society.

These programs can be tailored to suit the unique needs and preferences of each organization. Contact us to get started!
