Additional Options:

Gifts of Stock and Mutual Funds

You benefit in two ways when you transfer appreciated stocks and securities: 1) You may avoid capital gains when you donate publicly traded stocks that have been held for more than one year, and 2) You may take the full fair market value of the gift as a charitable deduction on your taxes.

The easiest way to make this kind of gift to Friendship Bridge is to have your broker electronically transfer the stock from your account to ours:

  • Account with: RBC Wealth Management
  • Broker: Jackie Johnson, AWM Financial Advisor
  • Phone: 303-488-3618
  • Account Name: Friendship Bridge
  • Account Number: 303-14284-1-4
  • DTC # 0235
  • Federal Tax ID: 84-1141078

Once you have made a gift of stock, please notify Michelle Winzent at mwinzent@friendshipbridge.org. Please be sure to provide your name and address so we know how to thank you.

Gifts from your IRA and Retirement Accounts
Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs) — If you have reached age 70 1/2, you may be able to use distributions from an IRA (including so-called “Required Minimum Distributions”) to make gifts directly from the IRA to charitable organizations and not have to pay any taxes on the amounts so distributed. Ordinarily, income taxes are payable when you take a distribution from an IRA. With a QCD, instead of your paying income taxes, the charity gets the benefit of the entire amount. In some ways, it’s as if you get a charitable deduction for the gift,but you don’t have to itemize deductions to take advantage of this way of giving. Remember: this works only with an IRA (not other types of retirement plans), and the funds must go DIRECTLY from the IRA to the charity. Check with your IRA administrator or financial advisor for more details to see if it makes sense for you to make charitable gifts this way. Learn more.
