RTEBN accepts donations of securities such as stocks, mutual funds, or bonds. Making a gift of stock is easy. You’ll simply need to convey your instructions to your broker and RTEBN will receive the proceeds from your stock transfer. You can receive a tax deduction based on the full fair market value of the securities at the time of your gift and often save capital gains taxes as well. (Please consult with professional counsel to determine individual deductibility limits.)
Many employers have matching gift programs available to employees. Please consider asking your employer if a matching gift program is available to maximize the impact of your gift. For your reference, our tax ID number is 94-3238591.
A provision in your will for RTEBN is a simple way to help support our home safety and repair programs for low-income seniors. A Charitable Remainder Trust can allow you to save income taxes and capital gains taxes in the current year, save estate taxes in later years, and receive a guaranteed income for life. You put a portion of your assets into the trust irrevocably, and the trust invests those assets and pays you a calculated amount for the rest of your life. At your death, the trust assets are used for the charitable purposes of supporting RTEBN’s programs. A charitable remainder unitrust works especially well for individuals and couples who are 70 years of age or more. Please contact us for more information about donating vehicles, stock, or bequests.
We appreciate whatever method you choose, your support is greatly appreciated! Please feel free to drop us a line or stop by the office for a cup of coffee.
