Cash: A Popular Gift
We commonly receive gifts in the form of cash, checks, and electronic transfers. Cash gifts can be convenient for many people and are easily recorded through receipts and bank records. Remember that it is important to save all receipts for tax purposes.
Non-Cash Gifts: Enjoy More Savings
Many Baron Jay Foundation supporters choose to make their charitable gifts in forms other than cash.
Securities – Giving stocks, bonds or mutual funds that have increased in value may help you reduce taxes and conserve cash.
Retirement plan distributions – These assets can be a practical resource for charitable gifts now or in your long-range estate plans.
Life insurance policies – Using life insurance for gifts to Baron Jay Foundation can be a convenient way to make a tax-effective gift.
Real estate – An often overlooked resource, real estate can be an excellent way to make a meaningful gift that could enhance your income or generate tax savings.
