CORPORATE AND EMPLOYER MATCHES
Many corporations and employers offer matching programs that allow donors to double or triple their gifts to non-profit organizations. For example, matching programs through employers such as Nike, Intel and Cambia Health have allowed our members to multiply the impact of their gifts to Neveh Shalom. Individual families may also structure innovative “family” matches to involve everyone in creating a significant contribution to a capital campaign. Please consult your employer for details on their matching programs.
Gifts of appreciated stock, bonds or mutual funds are a smart and simple way to give to the Funding our Future campaign. A gift of appreciated securities held for more than one year may provide significant benefits to you such as:
- Entitling you to a charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the gifted securities as of the date of gift.
- Eliminating capital gains tax that would ordinarily become due if you had sold the appreciated securities on the open market and donated the proceeds from the sale to charity.
- Claiming your charitable deduction against up to 30% of your adjusted gross income. Any unused deductions can be carried forward over the next five years.
- Providing a way to help you to achieve your long-term financial objective of reducing your income and estate taxes.
- If you have securities that have declined in value over the years and are interested in donating them, you may find it more advantageous to sell the securities first and then contribute the proceeds.
Please consult your financial advisor about making a gift of appreciated securities.
ENDOWMENT, LIFE & LEGACY
Deferred or planned gift options (such as a bequest) often help donors see how they can make a maximum gift to an organization or campaign. The commitment to five is made now, but the gift does not effectively come into possession of CNS until a future date. Advantages to donors of such gifts can include a reduction in estate, capital gains, gift, and/or income taxes. Gifts of this nature will be accepted toward the Endowment goals of the Funding Our Future campaign.
CAMPAIGN TRIBUTES AND NAMING OPPORTUNITIES
Funding Our Future offers opportunities for creating tribute gifts and naming opportunities. Gifts and pledges may be made in memoriam or in honor of individuals, families, or organizations.
