Gifts of Stock & Securities
Making a gift of appreciated securities is a great alternative to a cash donation. You will receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value of your securities (if you have held them for more than one year) and you will save the capital gain tax on the appreciation.
Note: Please notify us when you have transferred stock to the Holocaust Center for Humanity so we know who to apply the gift to. Let us know the name of the stock and the number of shares transferred.
A Charitable IRA Rollover allows individuals 70 ½ or older to make direct contributions from their retirement accounts without having to count the transfers as income for federal tax purposes. To make a qualified charitable distribution, your IRA trustee can make a check payable to the Holocaust Center for Humanity.
Please be advised that the Center can not give legal or financial advice. If you have any questions, please consult your financial advisor.
