Assets & Fees- What to Give?

You may give any of the following assets to open or contribute to a charitable fund at TCF:

Cash and Bonds
Securities
Includes publicly traded or privately held stock and mutual funds.
Real Estate
Includes homes, condominiums, apartments and undeveloped land.
Tangible Personal Property
Includes art, antiques and jewelry.
Business Interests
Includes non-publicly traded or closely held stock and partnership interests.
Retirement Assets
Includes IRAs, retirement plans, charitable remainder trusts, lead trusts, charitable gift annuities, etc.
Trust and Estate Assets
Life Insurance Policies
All (long-term) securities are deductible at full fair market value; thus, the donor avoids capital gains tax. Assets with a low cost basis are often wise choices as they offer the maximum advantage to receive a favorable income tax deduction.
While these are the most common ways for individuals to make gifts, other forms of giving are available. TCF’s staff members are pleased to discuss giving options with you and/or your attorney, accountant, financial planner or other professional advisor.
