TRIBUTES

Any gift to the Foundation for Self Leadership can be made in honor or memory of a special person. The person being honored or the next-of-kin will receive notice that such a gift was made by you without reference to the gift amount.

CORPORATE MATCHING GIFT

Many employers offer corporate matching gifts that can multiply the value of the original donation at no cost to the employee. Gifts by retirees, board members and spouses of employees may even be eligible for such a match.

GIFTS OF STOCK

There are several financial benefits to transferring appreciated securities: you receive the full current market value of the stock on the date of transfer; that amount is deductible on federal income tax returns; and you avoid capital gains.

QUALIFIED CHARITABLE DISTRIBUTION

If you have a traditional Individual Retirement Account, you must begin taking minimum required distributions once you reach the age of 70½ and these distributions are taxable at ordinary income rates.

If you don't want or need the money, you can distribute the minimum required amount as a charitable gift, in which case you avoid paying income tax on the distributions.
