Stock, Bonds and Mutual Funds
Stock, bonds and mutual funds may be transferred to Grace Place by your broker. We can assist you with this type of gift. Gifts of stock, bonds and mutual funds often generate tax savings and the avoidance of capital gains. Usually it’s better for the donor not to sell the stock, bond or mutual fund but to transfer as is to Grace Place. To retain the most benefit from your gift, please contact us before making any decisions. Call or email us today for a copy of our transfer instructions.
Real Estate and Property
Gifts of land, personal property, vacation home or rental property may be made to Grace Place. These types of gifts require careful planning and we’d be delighted to assist you with these special types of gifts. You may donate your home but retain the right to live in it and receive numerous benefits. You may also donate revenue from a business but retain the ownership. These types of gifts often generate tremendous tax savings and the avoidance of capital gains. To retain the most benefit from your gift, please contact us before making any decisions.
You may transfer all or a portion of your IRA funds to Grace Place. This is especially helpful for donors over the age of 70 ½ when annual allocations must be withdrawn. Current IRS rules allow donors to transfer funds from IRA’s without incurring income tax. We can assist you with this special type of gift.
