Why should IRS rules guide the timing of your charitable giving?
Rid yourself of those arbitrary deadlines and receive the highest charitable tax deduction allowed by law when you open a donor-advised fund at DonorsTrust. Instead of rushing to meet an end-of-year deadline, you have the freedom to take your time making thoughtful charitable contributions from your account.
Simple, Private, and Tax-Efficient
Donor-advised funds offer donors one of the most tax-advantaged ways to give to charity – while at the same time simplifying the giving process.
- Take a deduction of up to 50% of adjusted gross income (AGI) when contributing cash, and up to 30% of AGI when contributing appreciated stock, appreciated property, or closely held securities.
- Avoid capital gains taxes when contributing appreciated stocks while taking a deduction of the full value of the stock.
- Make and report only one gift, minimizing your paperwork and increasing your privacy, while still being able to support many charities through your donor-advised account.
- Grow your charitable dollars tax-free by investing some or all the funds in your donor-advised account in one of DonorsTrust’s professionally managed, pooled-investment funds so that you can make an even greater charitable impact later.
A gift to any organization offering donor-advised funds can give you these benefits. Only DonorsTrust shares your commitment to liberty at its core.
