Gifts of Stock and Securities
Gifts of appreciated stock and securities are win-win alternatives to charitable cash donations. Your tax advisor can provide you with all the details. However, if you have held appreciated stock or mutual funds for more than one year, you can donate those securities to the Land Trust and receive a tax deduction for the current market value of the securities—thereby eliminating any capital gains assessments on future sales.

IRA Charitable Rollovers
If you are 70 ½ or older, you can make tax-free charitable distributions from your IRA to the Land Trust. The law allows individuals to roll over up to $100,000 from an IRA directly to a qualifying charity without being taxed. For some this will greatly increase their ability to support the momentum we are building at the Land Trust.
To make an IRA gift, please contact your IRA administrator. To be tax-free, these gifts need to come directly from your IRA account.
Please contact Hilary Doubleday at (805) 966-4520 with any questions about ways to give.
And, please, let us know if you have ordered a stock or IRA distribution. Providing us with the approximate amount and timing of the gift will allow us to correctly register the gift and thank you appropriately.
