  • DONATE STOCK

A gift of appreciated securities that you have held for more than one year is frequently the most economic way to give. You may be eligible to take a federal income tax deduction for the appreciated value of the donated securities while avoiding capital gains tax on the appreciation.  To facilitate your gift of securities, you or the transferring broker should please provide us:

    • Donor’s name and complete address
    • Name and number of securities to be transferred

For more information, please contact us.

Please contact your tax advisor for the applicability of this valuable tax saving strategy.

 

  • PLANNED GIVING AND MEMORIALS

Planned giving can be defined as a method of supporting non-profits that enables philanthropic individuals to make larger gifts than they could make from their discretionary income – both in life and at their bequest.

While some gifts provide a life-long income to a donor, other gifts use estate and tax planning techniques to provide for charitable organizations in ways to maximize the gift and minimize its impact on the donor’s estate. Whether a donor uses cash, appreciated securities/stock, real estate, artwork, partnership interests, personal property, life insurance or a retirement plan, the benefits of funding a planned gift can make charitable giving very attractive for you as a donor and reduce your family’s estate-tax burden after you are gone.

FSO also offers several ways to memorialize your loved ones: sponsor a concert or a principal musician’s chair in his/her memory, provide a music lessons scholarship for a student in need, make a donation, or customize a memorial to your specifications.

For more information, please contact us.
