Donor Advised Fund (DAF)

A DAF is a centralized charitable account that allows for tax-deductible charitable donations of cash, publicly-traded stock and, in some cases, certain illiquid assets. Contact your financial advisor for specific advice about how to establish a DAF.

Qualified Charitable Distribution

If you’re 70½ or older, you have another option to consider for a tax-efficient charitable gift. A QCD allows you to efficiently pass on up to $100,000 directly from your IRA to qualified charitable organizations and realize tax advantages. Contact your financial advisor for specific advice on how to make a QCD contribution.

Stock Transfer

Stock Giving is the most tax efficient way to give. When donors give appreciated stock, the shares are transferred from the donors’ brokerage account directly to a a qualified 501(c)3 nonprofit’s brokerage account. The donor does not have to pay tax on the capital gain. In addition, the full value (or fair market value) of the donated stock is the amount of the charitable donation donors can claim on their individual income tax return. Contact your financial advisor for specific advice on how to make a donation via Stock Transfer.

Employer Match Donation

Increase the impact of your gift! Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will double—sometimes even triple—any charitable contributions made by their employees, retirees, or spouses.

Contact your HR department for the proper forms for a matching donation and mail them to Swiftsure Ranch. If you need a hand please reach out, we’re happy to help with the process.
