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.  

If you are 70.5 or older, you may be able to give up to $105,000 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 Appreciated Securities

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.

Designate your appreciated security contribution to the impact area of your choice

WesleyLife Foundation supports a wide range of giving opportunities with a shared goal of addressing the critical needs of older adults in our communities. As a donor, you can designate the communities or programs to which your gift should be directed.

I learned that day that WesleyLife promises us that if we have to spend all our money, we may be able to receive financial help that will allow us to stay. I sobbed like a baby. I could not believe there could be such wonderful people in the world.

To think that people are that generous for the benefit of people they don't know — well, my mother always said there are angels among us, and this proves her right.
