Your donation of stock benefits you and the YWCA!

By donating stock that has appreciated for more than a year, you are actually giving more than if you sold the stock and then made a cash donation. The reason is simple: avoiding capital gains taxes. The maximum federal capital gains tax rate is 20 percent on long-term holdings. But if you donate the stock directly to a charity, there’s no capital gains tax to pay. Plus, you are still eligible to deduct the full fair-market value of the asset you donated from your income taxes, up to the overall amount allowed by the IRS (consult with your tax advisor).

The YWCA makes donating stock very easy. You can directly transfer from your stock account to ours. Please contact your stock advisor or the YWCA Greensboro if you have questions.

Did you know donating to the YWCA Greensboro directly from your IRA can have benefits for you as well as for the many vulnerable women, children and families we serve each year?

Why you should consider making a donation directly from your IRA –

Eligible IRA owners can make a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) up to $100,000 ($200,000 for married couples who each qualify separately) from IRAs without having to pay federal income taxes on the distributions. These distributions must be made payable directly to a qualified charity. You can use up to the entire $100,000 per person each year to satisfy any required minimum distributions you may have for the year. The rules for QCDs are complex, and you should consult with your tax advisor prior to implementing this strategy.
