Tax-Favorable Gift for the Climate
Stocks, Bonds and Mutual Funds: An alternative to a cash contribution is to directly donate stocks, bonds, or mutual funds. If you have held shares for at least a year, you can donate them without incurring a tax on capital gains (check with your tax or financial advisor). We make the process easy!
From your IRA: You can donate directly from a traditional IRA to 350 Bay Area, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, for a great tax break! A direct charitable contribution from a traditional IRA means that you don’t need to declare the distribution as taxable income. Just make sure that the transfer or check is in the name of 350 Bay Area. If you’re over 70 1/2, this donation will count as a distribution for the purpose of meeting your required distribution amount without impacting your taxable income.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how to make the transfer. It’s easy!
