ASSET DONATION TO FEA & OTHER NPOs
Over the years, FEA has enjoyed the strong support of key individuals. Their support has been ensuring our ability to provide the best services possible to the entire community. Since FEA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity, many have found that giving can not only support the mission of our organization but also help themselves in their financial planning.
The following list is intended to be a helpful guide to the variety of ways to make a gift to FEA. This is not intended as tax advice. Tax laws differ for federal and state purposes, from state to state, and are always subject to change. Each donor’s tax situation is unique. Please consult your own tax advisors to determine the tax consequences in your own case, of any gift you wish to make.
• Corporate Matching Gifts
• Gifts by Will or Bequest
While most people are familiar with a Will, the term "bequest" is not quite as frequently used. A bequest is a gift from your estate, a transfer of cash, securities, or other property made through your estate plans. Bequests large and small will contribute to the good health of FEA over the years. By including FEA in their will, many donors will find they are able to make a much larger gift than they would thought possible.
• Gifts of Stock & Appreciated Securities
Donors often like to make gifts of appreciated long-term securities as a way of supporting their community and cause(s) they believe in. Check with your advisor to see how making a gift of stock can help you make a lasting impact while bypassing capital gains tax.
• Gifts of Closely Held Stock
• Gifts of Real Estate
Gifts can consist of almost any type of property: personal or recreational residence, farm or ranch, commercial building, subdivision lots, undeveloped property or a fractional interest in property. Assets may be given outright and serve as the corpus of a trust arrangement or, in the case of a personal residence, given with the right of lifetime tenancy by donor and/or spouse. The benefits to the donor usually include an immediate partial charitable deduction as well as bypassing capital gains tax.
• Gifts of Life Insurance
Using life insurance to make a major gift is an option for donors who no longer need policies they purchased years ago. You may choose to assign your policies irrevocably to FEA or to one of its programs.
• Charitable Remainder Unitrusts and Annuity Trusts (CRUTs & CRATs)
• Charitable Lead Trusts
• Personal Property and Other Asset Donation
• Donor-Advised Fund and Fractional Donation
