Why donate stock, assets, or IRA rollover?

Maximize your impact by donating appreciated securities such as stocks, mutual funds, or bonds directly to WesleyLife Foundation. When compared to donating cash or selling appreciated securities and contributing the post-tax proceeds, you may be able to increase your gift and tax deduction.  

You may be able to give up to $100,000 per year to a qualified charity like WesleyLife Foundation from your individual retirement account (IRA) without paying income tax on the gift. Known as an IRA rollover or qualified charitable distribution, this donation may reduce your annual income level because the gift does not count as income. Additionally, the year you turn 73, you may be able to use this gift to satisfy all or a portion of your required minimum distribution (RMD).

Enjoy the tax benefits that IRA, stock, and real estate donations offer.

Give an IRA Rollover

If you're 70.5 or older, you may be able to give up to $100,000 annually from your IRA to WesleyLife Foundation to support the future of our mission — without paying income taxes on the gift.

Give Appreciated Securities

By directly donating appreciated securities such as stock, mutual funds, or bonds to WesleyLife Foundation, you may be able to avoid capital gains taxes and maximize your giving impact by as much as 20 percent.

Give the Gift of Real Estate

Donating your land or home to WesleyLife Foundation may allow you to circumvent the significant capital gains taxes involved in selling or handing down real estate and turn your most important investment into a highly valued charitable gift.
