OTHER WAYS TO GIVE
Matching gifts are a great way to involve your company with the important work of Point Foundation. Inquire with your employer if there is a way that your personal gift to Point can be matched. Most companies who have these programs will match your gift dollar-for-dollar, doubling your impact.
A gift of appreciated securities – stocks, bonds or mutual funds – doubles the benefit to you. You will pay no capital gains tax on the transfer and you can claim a charitable income tax deduction on your income tax return for the full fair market value of the securities (up to 30% of your adjusted gross income), no matter what you initially paid for the securities. Point will receive the full value of the securities, undiminished by taxes.
For more information about stock gifts and appreciated securities contact Eddie Pelto.
