1. Stocks or Appreciated Assets
By donating stocks or appreciated assets, you can avoid capital gains taxes, which makes this method financially advantageous for you. Simultaneously, Step by Step receives the full market value of the donated assets, making your contribution even more significant.
2. Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs)
If you are 70½ years old or older, you can make QCDs directly from your individual retirement account (IRA) to Step by Step. QCDs are not considered taxable income and are counted towards your required minimum distribution, offering a great tax advantage.
3. Donor-Advised Funds (DAFs)
Step by Step is pleased to accept gifts in the form of grants from DAFs, a philanthropic vehicle that allows you to contribute cash, securities, and other assets to charitable organizations. The benefits of a DAF include simplicity, flexibility, tax efficiency, and the ability to grow your investment tax-free.
