What You Can Give
Giving appreciated stock that you have owned for more than one year is one of the most tax-advantaged ways to make charitable gifts. With careful planning, you can reduce your capital gains tax while supporting Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) or Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital (BWFH).
If you are 70 1/2 or over, the IRA charitable rollover is a terrific way to make a tax-free gift to BWH or BWFH.
A gift of your retirement assets, such as an employee retirement plan, IRA, or tax-sheltered annuity, is an excellent way to make a gift. A gift of these assets can shield you or your heirs from taxes while funding BWH or BWFH’s future.
Life insurance is a valuable asset for making a charitable gift. You can make a gift of a life insurance policy without diminishing other investments or assets earmarked for family members.
A gift of real estate allows you to preserve your cash assets, receive tax and income advantages, and make a significant charitable gift to BWH or BWFH.
A gift of artwork, coins, antiques, or other personal property can be an excellent way to support BWH or BWFH.
A donor-advised fund (DAF) provides donors with a centralized charitable giving vehicle.
