The gifting of securities and mutual funds pertains to a charitable donation achieved by transferring ownership of stocks, bonds, or mutual fund units directly to a charitable organization or foundation. Instead of making a cash donation, one can opt to contribute these financial assets, resulting in potential tax benefits.

Securities and mutual funds represent investments held within your portfolio. When you choose to donate these assets to a registered charity, you are not only providing support to a charitable cause but also benefiting from potential tax advantages.

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

Tax Savings: Donating appreciated securities or mutual funds can yield tax benefits. When you donate directly to a registered charity, you can avoid paying capital gains tax on the appreciated value of the assets. Furthermore, you 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 enables you to contribute more to the causes you hold dear without affecting your cash flow. This maximizes the impact of your charitable contribution, benefiting the chosen charity or foundation.

Simplified Giving Process: The process of gifting securities and mutual funds is straightforward and can be facilitated by financial institutions or brokerage firms. Once the transfer is completed, the charitable organization can sell the assets and utilize the proceeds to support its programs and initiatives.

Don’t miss the opportunity to give more, save on taxes, and simplify your charitable contributions. Contact us today to begin your journey toward a more impactful and tax-efficient approach to giving.

Gifts through estates encompass charitable contributions integrated into an individual’s estate planning and testamentary arrangements. When an individual chooses to allocate a portion of their assets, including money, property, or other valuable items, to a charitable organization or foundation in their will, it is categorized as an estate gift.

One can forge an enduring legacy through meticulous estate planning by championing the causes that ignite their passion. This form of giving empowers individuals to uphold charitable organizations beyond their lifetime, leaving a lasting and positive impact on the community and the causes they held dear throughout their lives.

Estate gifts can assume diverse forms, including specific bequests (a fixed sum or designated asset), residual bequests (a percentage of the estate after addressing other bequests and expenses), or contingent bequests (activated under specific conditions).

Gifts involving securities, mutual funds, and estates represent potent mechanisms for individuals to effect meaningful change and establish a lasting imprint on the causes close to their hearts. By integrating philanthropic giving into their financial and estate plans, they have the capacity to craft a profound legacy that bolsters their community and contributes to positive change for the generations to come.

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.

Discover the power of employee giving programs. These initiatives enable you to support causes directly from your paycheck. Contact your employer to find out more and be part of a community that values mental wellness. Don’t miss the chance to double your impact and make a difference today.
