Transfer a gift of stock

If you give appreciated stock, bonds or mutual funds you have held for more than a year, you can eliminate the associated capital gains tax exposure. Even with highly appreciated stocks you want to keep in your portfolio, contributing and buying to replace those shares can be a terrific strategy to reset your cost basis. If you itemize, you can also take a deduction on  the full fair market value of your contribution for even more tax savings. There are some exceptions and limits, so talk to your advisor and check out IRS publication 526

Make a qualified charitable distribution from your IRA

If you have required minimum distributions from your IRA, your administrator can help you set up qualified charitable distributions that roll over directly from your IRA to Donate Life Northwest. IRS Pub 590b has more information, or talk to your advisor about all the advantages of charitable distributions that count toward your required minimum, but are federally tax-free (not included in taxable income, so no need to itemize as a deduction). You can transfer less or more than your minimum to charity - up to $100,000 a year without paying income tax on the distributed funds. To complete the qualified charitable distribution forms from your financial institution, use:
