Gift of Stock
Donating long-term highly appreciated securities can provide you with significant tax benefits. When transferring stock directly to MBAW, you can claim an income tax deduction as well as escape capital gains tax.
IRA Charitable Rollover
If you are over the age of 70½, you can make a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) from your Individual Retirement Account up to $100,000. A donation transferred directly from your IRA to a qualified charity like MBAW generally reduces your taxable income by 100% of the amount you transfer. When you turn 72 a QCD will count towards your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD).*
*In 2020, the CARES Act waived the requirement for minimum distributions.
For more information, please contact Erika Hicks at email@example.com or 210.464.1534 ext. 7,
