Gifts of Stock

Many donors prefer to make gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds, mutual funds or exchange-traded funds because it can have a large impact for wildlife and habitat while maximizing potential tax benefits. How?  By avoiding paying capital gains taxes AND receiving a federal income tax deduction for the full present value of the stock (and in some states, a state income tax deduction too). When you give appreciated stocks direct to NCWF, your gift can be up to 20% larger because you avoid the taxes you’d incur from selling and donating the cash. This means more money going to the work you support.

IRA Gifts or QCDs

Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs), also known as IRA Charitable Rollovers, are the savviest way for individuals age 70 ½ or older to use their IRAs to maximize their charitable impact. When you take distributions from your IRA, it usually counts as income for tax purposes. QCDs are an exception. If you are 70 ½ or older, you can distribute up to $100,000 a year from your IRA to your favorite 501(c)(3) organizations without counting the distribution as income. It is recommended you consult with your tax advisor when donating a QCD.

If you have a DAF through a different DAF sponsoring organization, please get in touch with your advisor directly to make your recommendation. Also, don’t forget to name a beneficiary of your DAF or family foundation. Simply name NCWF as the successor beneficiary or designate NCWF to receive a portion of the funds remaining.
