As one of the highest-taxed assets for many people, charitable gifts from an IRA make an excellent tax-planning tool. Even though Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) from a traditional IRA do not start until age 73, your clients can begin making Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs) up to $100,000 at 70 ½.

Real Estate

Land, vacation homes, commercial properties and primary residences offer an excellent charitable gift and tax planning tool.

Stocks, Bonds and Mutual Funds

Gifts of appreciated stock, bonds and mutual funds can offer significant tax savings while preserving liquid assets.

Business-Related Assets

Gifting a portion or all of a privately held C-Corp, S-Corp, LLC or limited partnership can be an efficient tax planning strategy.

Other Assets

Estate Planning

At the Community Foundation, we can accept a wide variety of giving options that can be included in your clients’ estates. Our experienced team can work with you and your clients to guide them through the process.

Options include:

  • Include a Gift in a Will or Trust (Sample Bequest Language)
  • Charitable Gift Annuities
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Charitable Lead Trusts
Retirement Plan Assets

Retirement plan assets are subject to both estate tax and income tax. By designating a portion or all of the proceeds of their retirement assets to establish or designate a fund at the Community Foundation, your clients can reduce the potential tax burden these can cause for their heirs.

Life Insurance

A gift of a life insurance policy allows your clients to make a charitable gift without a significant outlay of cash.

Retained Life Estate Gifts

Your clients can donate a personal residence, vacation home or farm to a fund at the Community Foundation while retaining the right to live there for the remainder of their life or a specified period of time. This allows them to receive an income tax deduction and simplifies the administration of their estate.
