A charitable gift of appreciated stock can be advantageous for you and the LPS Foundation. As long as you’ve owned the stock for more than a year, you can donate shares directly to the LPS Foundation and may be able to avoid paying capital gains taxes. Win/win.
Donor Advised Funds
A donor-advised fund (DAF) is like a charitable investment account. It provides flexibility and convenience by allowing you to make a deductible contribution today and invest your contribution so it can potentially grow tax-free over time.
If you are 70 ½ or older, you can give to a nonprofit organization like LPS Foundation via a qualified charitable distribution (QCD). QCDs can be counted toward satisfying your required minimum distributions (RMDs) for the year, reducing your tax liability. Certain rules must be met with this type of donation so be sure to work with a tax professional when considering QCDs.
A legacy gift gives you the chance to have a significant impact without expending any resources today. Contact Beth Best, Executive Director, at 303-347-3478 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about leaving a legacy for LPS students and staff.
