Donate appreciated stock or other assets directly through your broker for potential capital gains tax savings. According to fidelitycharitable.org “By donating stock that has appreciated for more than a year, you are actually giving 20 percent more than if you sold the stock and then made a cash donation. The reason is simple: avoiding capital gains taxes.”
If you’ve reached the age where you need to take required minimum distributions (RMDs) from your traditional IRAs, there are tax advantages for donating your RMD to charity. Consult your financial advisor about how to donate all or a portion of your RMD to the Ashokan Center. Learn more: Charity Navigator: Donating Your IRA RMD
