A gift of appreciated securities offers two tax benefits: a charitable deduction for the fair market value of the securities, and avoidance of capital gains tax on appreciation (the difference between cost and current fair market value).
Charitable Gift Annuities
A charitable gift annuity provides an immediate federal income tax deduction and a fixed lifetime income payment, some of which may be free from federal income tax. Although most donors choose to receive the annuity payment themselves, arrangements may be made to provide income for a loved one. You may also choose to create a deferred gift annuity and receive a higher rate of annuity payment.
Charitable Remainder Trusts
Charitable Remainder Trusts can provide a fixed or variable annual income for any number of income beneficiaries (depending upon the type of trust established). Upon the death of the last income beneficiary, the balance of the trust’s assets would be given to Friends School Haverford.
Endowment helps a school weather shifting financial climates and enables the School to respond to unforeseen possibilities. A gift to the Endowment may support financial aid. faculty salaries and professional development, maintenance of the facilities and grounds, and capital improvements, including building upkeep and new technology.
