GIVE STOCK AND REAL ESTATE
EVEN MORE WAYS TO SUPPORT DUKE CHILDREN’S
You may not be aware that gifts like real estate and stocks can be just as helpful to Duke Children’s as cash. Plus, these types of gifts may offer you certain tax benefits. Our team can talk to you about your options and help determine how to maximize the benefits of your gift for everyone involved.
Gifts of Securities
Gifts of securities, including appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds, may provide special tax advantages. By donating appreciated securities that you have owned for longer than one year, you receive the same income tax savings as you would by making a gift of cash or by check, but you also avoid tax on the capital gains built up in donated securities.
Gifts of Privately Traded ("Closely Held") Stock
These gifts require additional planning, but our planned giving staff is ready to help explain the benefits and options.
Gifts of Real Estate
You may donate land or other property to Duke Children’s—whether it's a residential or vacation home, a farm, commercial building, residential lots, or unimproved land. Your gift may consist of the entire property or a fraction.
If you make a gift using any of these assets, you may need to complete an IRS Form 8283 for your personal income tax return.
Charitable IRA Rollover
One simple way to make a gift is by rolling over an IRA. IRA owners can directly transfer funds from their individual retirement account to achieve multiple charitable purposes.
YOUR GIFT CREATES A BRIGHTER FUTURE FOR CHILDREN IN NEED
We appreciate every gift of every size, making sure that your generosity is used to advance medical care and provide a better tomorrow for our children. You can choose a dollar amount to give now, or continue exploring more ways that you can support Duke Children’s.
