What To Give
.
You are considering making a charitable donation, but maybe you are not sure what you can give. Here are five options!

Gifts of Stocks and Bonds
A gift of your securities, including your stocks or bonds, is an easy way for you to make a gift. By making a gift of your appreciated securities, you can avoid paying capital gains tax that would otherwise be due if you sold these assets.
 

Here are some of the potential benefits:

  • Avoid paying capital gains tax.
  • Receive a charitable income tax deduction.
  • Enjoy possible increased income.
  • Further our mission today!
Gifts of Real Estate
A gift of your real property (such as your home, vacation property, vacant land, farmland or ranch or commercial property) can make a great gift. If you own appreciated real property, you can avoid paying capital gains tax by making a gift to Washington Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.
 

Here are some of the benefits you may enjoy:

  • Avoid paying capital gains tax.
  • Receive a charitable income tax deduction.
  • Leave a lasting legacy.
Gifts of Retirement Assets
A gift of your retirement assets, such as a gift from your IRA, 401k, 403b, pension or other tax deferred plan, is an excellent way to make a gift. By making a gift of your retirement assets, you will help further our work.

Did you know that 50%-60% of your retirement assets may be taxed if you leave them to your heirs at your death? Another option is to leave your heirs assets that receive a step up in basis (such as real estate and stock) and give the retirement assets to Washington Conference of SDA. As a charity, we are not taxed upon receiving an IRA or other retirement plan assets.

Gifts of Cash
A gift of cash is a simple and easy way for you to make a gift. You will receive a charitable tax deduction that will provide you with savings on this year's tax return.
 

A cash gift is a simple and easy way for you to make a gift. Your gift can:

  • Make an immediate impact on our mission today.
  • Provide you with a charitable income tax deduction.
Gift of Insurance
A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a gift to us. If your life insurance policy is no longer needed or will no longer benefit your survivors consider making a gift and help further our mission.

Did you know that you can give your life insurance policy to Washington Conference of SDA today and receive a charitable income tax deduction? You can then make deductible contributions to Washington Conference of SDA each year which we may use to pay the premiums. We benefit from the proceeds of your policy.
