What To Give
In Kind Giving - Items & Property
Consider gifts of property, automobiles, art, collectibles, memorabilia, taxidermy, antiques, etc. Need help managing an estate? Donate items or collections to ARTISANworks. We will make the process easy with an on-site consultation and independent appraisers so you enjoy the full tax benefit allowable. We will then pick-up and store your items for at least three years so you enjoy the full tax benefit of your in-kind gift. You may even see your items on display in one of our theme rooms.
Making a donation of cash is as simple as writing a check or authorizing a charge on your credit card. From your standpoint, it's no fuss, no bother.
Your generosity enables us to meet our most urgent needs and carry out mission on a daily basis.
Ways to give: Bequests, Beneficiary Designations
Your property opens the door to a unique giving opportunity. Warehouse, office, or residential space can be donated to charitable organizations like ours. You’ll be helping a good cause, and enjoying the tax benefits.
Charitable IRA Rollover
If you’re 70½ or older, your chance to make tax-free gifts from your IRA for 2012 ends Dec. 31. Under the extended charitable IRA legislation, you can make charitable gifts now to ARTISANworks using funds from your individual retirement accounts (IRAs) without undesirable tax effects.
Closely Held Stock
A donation of your closely held stock can be a fine way for you to make a sizable charitable contribution while realizing valuable tax benefits.
Most of us think of life insurance as protection, especially for our loved ones. But it is also a powerful tool you can use to champion our work far into the future. Here’s what you need to know.
Life Insurance Death Benefits
Your need for life insurance changes as time passes, making way for a new opportunity for its use. If you no longer need the coverage to protect your loved ones, consider changing your policy’s beneficiary to support our work.
There’s more than one way to turn your savings bonds into a generous donation while reducing the tax liability generated by these secure investments.
Stock that has increased in value is one of the most popular assets used for charitable giving, once it has been held for more than one year. Making a gift of securities to us offers you the chance to help our organization while realizing many important benefits for yourself.
Retirement Plan Assets
Do you have money saved in an employee retirement plan, IRA or tax-sheltered annuity? Each of these retirement plan assets contains income that has yet to be taxed. Your beneficiaries will owe the income tax at your death, totaling up to 35 percent, which may be reason enough to consider giving your loved ones less heavily taxed assets and leaving your retirement plan assets to charity instead.
