In addition to cash contributions, there are some tax-advantaged ways of donating that not only help Melodious Accord, but can help you save on taxes as well.
DONATIONS OF STOCK
If you own stock that has appreciated in value, you would pay capital gains tax if you sold it – but if you donate the stock directly to a qualified not-for-profit organization, you don’t have to pay capital gains tax and you can still claim a charitable deduction on your tax return, assuming you claim itemized deductions.
QUALIFIED CHARITABLE DISTRIBUTIONS
If you are 70 ½ or older and are required to take minimum distributions from your retirement account, you may instead give all or part of your distribution to a charity. If you do this, you avoid paying taxes on the distribution, and you can still claim a charitable deduction on your tax return.
For either of the above options, your broker or retirement plan trustee should be able to help. Please write to us at the address above or via our Contact Us form on this site for more information.
