Appreciated Securities (Stocks)

Gifts of appreciated securities (stock gifts) remains one of the most commonly used vehicles for making donations to nonprofits, particularly larger non-cash gifts. By giving appreciated securities, donors are able to avoid potential capital gain tax liabilities while also receiving a charitable deduction. Donors interested in using appreciated securities to support FFI should talk to their broker or investment manager to learn more about easy this option can be.

Required Minimum Distributions

A required minimum distribution (RMD) is the amount of money that must be withdrawn from an employer-sponsored retirement plan, traditional Individual Retirement Account (IRA), or a Simplified Employee Pension plan. All or a portion of an RMD can be donated directly to charity, and is commonly known as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). Normally, distributions from a traditional IRA are taxable when received. With a QCD, however, these distributions become tax-free as long as they are paid directly from the IRA to an eligible charitable organization which can be done electronically, directly to the charity, or by check payable to the charity.

RMDs and QCDs represent the largest source of gifts to nonprofits and is growing every year. The guidelines include:

  • The retirement account owner much be age 70 ½ or older.
  • The annual QCD limit is $100K per account owner (although the limit can exceed the annual required minimum distribution.
  • For a married couple, if both spouses are age 70 ½ or over and both have IRAs, each spouse can exclude up to $100,000 for a total of up to $200,000 per year.
  • Donations must go directly from the IRA to the nonprofit.
  • QCDs only apply to taxable distributions.
  • Making tax-deductible IRA contributions can reduce your deduction for qualified charitable distributions when both are made in the same tax year.
  • RMD and QCD gifts must come from IRAs and not 401k or 403b funds. Fortunately, however, donors may transfer 401k and 403b funds to an IRA and then make RMD or QCD gifts accordingly.
  • Donors interested in looking at these excellent options for making gifts to FFI should simply call their account managers.

IRA Rollovers

Making a distribution is an easy process. Since you cannot make a distribution directly to a charity, your administrator must transfer the money directly to the charity. Simply contact your plan administrator and tell them you would like to make a charitable donation from your IRA. Typically, they will supply a distribution form for you to fill out and return.

At the end of the year, the administrator will provide you with a Form 1099-R so you can report it when you pay your income taxes.

Retirement Plan Beneficiary

Donors can name FFI as a beneficiary of IRAs, 401ks, 403bs, and similar types of retirement accounts, and offer some of the most tax-advantaged and transformational ways to support FFI". In fact, gifts from retirement funds to nonprofits represent one of the most mutually beneficial giving options that can ease tax burdens on non-spousal retirement fund beneficiaries.

Life Insurance Beneficiaries

An easy way to give to FFI is by purchasing a life insurance policy that FFI is listed as a beneficiary, either in total  or part.

Memorial Gifts

Families or friends may recognize a member by establishing a Memorial in the person's name.  FFI will recoginize the person through donor recogniztion efforts and display a memorial piece at HQ office.

Matching Gifts

Matching gifts may be available through the company where you are employed.  If you give to FFI, please check with your employer to determine if a matching gift may be available.  Many times it is a simple form with proof of payment that is required to increase your impact.  If you have questions please contact FFI Headquarters by e-mailing or call 406-222-9369 Ext 4.
