Donating stock to First Place is a simple process and often provides tax advantages. You may avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation of the stock, as well as receive an income tax deduction in the amount of the stock’s value upon the date of transfer to First Place.
If you’re 70-1/2 years or older, you can realize tax benefits when you roll over your Required Minimum Distribution to a nonprofit. Selecting First Place for Youth as a beneficiary of your annual required minimum distribution has tax benefits for you and can help a foster youth who is just getting started with their adult life.
So that we may track your gift, please get in touch with the Development department if you plan to donate stock or make a distribution from your IRA. Please click the ‘download’ button below to download the Stock Donation Form to share with your broker and initiate the transfer.
Including First Place in your estate plans is a powerful demonstration of your belief that all young people deserve support. Establishing a bequest to First Place or making a charitable gift from a retirement plan are simple ways to ensure future resources for our work with transition-age foster youth, without impacting your current lifestyle.
Please contact Chief Development Officer Grace Reddy for more information about legacy giving.
