An IRA rollover gift. If you are age 70 and older, one law allows you to make a tax-free charitable distribution from your IRA up to $100,000. You can obtain the transfer forms from your IRA custodian and give by the year's end. The IRA rollover may simplify your tax return, because the distribution is not included in your federal taxable income.
A gift of securities. You may earn a charitable deduction based on the fair market value on the date of the gift. If you have held the securities for more than a year, you incur a capital gains tax when you sell the securities. Even though the value of some securities is not as high recently, many friends have securities with appreciated value, and the donation to a charity could help avoid that capital gains tax.
Establishment of a charitable trust. A charitable trust may provide you or your family with income for life, while also avoiding capital gains taxes and supporting the fight for life and liberty with the ACLJ. A charitable trust is also flexible enough to be structured to your family's needs.
A gift of life insurance. If you have policies you no longer need, life insurance can make a convenient tax-deductible charitable gift. When you assign the ACLJ as the beneficiary, you may have the opportunity for tax deductions on the premiums being paid or the cash value of the policy
A charitable gift annuity. If you are 65 years old or above, you can earn guaranteed income ... and support the ACLJ's fight for life and liberty at the same time! A charitable gift annuity is a direct agreement between you and the American Center for Law and Justice and will give you income for life and a charitable tax deduction now as you help the ACLJ continue our work to protect the sanctity of life and our constitutional freedoms. It's also an alternative if you are seeking to reduce your stock exposure. (Minimum deposit of $10,000 is required to set up annuity.) You can enjoy possible tax-free income at a guaranteed rate of return (which many consider to be based on a very favorable rate), a charitable income tax deduction, income for life, and fixed income payments (deferred income payments are available).
