Ways to Give
Most donors who pledge to the campaign will complete their pledge payments with cash or marketable securities. Regarding gifts of cash or stock, a donor can claim a charitable income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the contribution paid within the tax year, as long as they itemize deductions on personal tax returns. Donors are encouraged to consult with their personal financial advisor for the method(s) best suited to meet their goals.
Cash: A gift of cash qualifies for a charitable income deduction. Please consult your tax advisor.
Securities: When giving the gift of appreciated securities such as stocks, bonds or mutual funds, the donor incurs no capital gains tax. Your charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes is based on the full fair market value of the stock on the date the gift is made. You receive credit from CATCH for the full fair market value of the stock, but the cost to you is only your original purchase price.
Real Estate: A gift of real estate that has appreciated in value can be a good option for some donors. As with other appreciated property gifts, the tax deduction for the gift is based on the property's current fair market value and the donor incurs no capital gain tax liability. A qualified appraisal is required.
Matching gifts: Numerous corporations have matching gift programs in which an employee's gift to the campaign will be matched by the company. Donors are urged to forward the company's matching gift form with their own contribution or pledge payment.
