Gift of Appreciated Securities: When you donate appreciated securities or mutual funds you have held more than one year in support of community resource building you can potentially reduce or even eliminate federal capital gains taxes on the transfer. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for help with that.
Making a Tax-Free Gift with an IRA: Under the new tax laws if you are 72½ years old or older you can use required minimum distributions (RMDs) from your individual retirement account for a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) and the amount (up to $100,000) will not be taxed as income. Talk to your IRA manager as to how to do this.
