  • How to Contribute
    limited to 30 of your adjusted gross income However gifts over that limit can be carried forward and deducted within the next five years assuming you itemize your deductions Gifting appreciated stock is easy This is how it works Call your broker and let him her know how many shares of which stock you want to donate Typically you want to select an appreciated stock that you ve held over one year and that you wish to sell or reduce your holding for diversification purposes Also you may wish to donate a stock that is paying little or no dividend as you are not earning any income off of that stock position ALBA has a brokerage account and your broker can arrange an electronic transfer of the stock with the following information Broker Telephone Account DTC Name on the Account is ALBA When ALBA sells the stock any trading costs are then deducted However in compliance with IRS regulations your tax deduction is based on the average price of the stock on the day your broker transfers the stock gift Example of a Stock Donation Example You ve held 200 shares of stock for more than one year and the shares are worth 20 each on the day you donate them Your charitable contribution deduction is 4 000 no matter at what price you originally bought the shares Consider that if you bought the shares long ago at 5 per share your capital gain would be 3000 By donating the stock there s no gain on which to be taxed At 15 the tax on 3000 would have been 450 You re getting a deduction for a 4 000 donation and can ignore any taxes on the appreciation You are no longer subject to the 450 in taxes that you would have paid if you had you actually sold the stock and donated the cash Furthermore if the stock is paying little or no dividend you ve made a contribution with a stock that was generating little or no income for you So you eliminate the 450 in taxes on the appreciation and receive a tax deduction for the entire 4 000 contribution If you re in the 28 bracket that 4 000 charitable contribution could save you 1120 of income tax assuming you itemize your deductions Results outlined in this example illustration are subject to deviation based upon the age date value and time of transfer This example serves to illustrate not guarantee results You should engage the proper planning taking into account your specific and personal circumstances with your legal tax and financial advisors Charitable Lead Trust WHAT IS A CHARITABLE LEAD TRUST A Charitable Lead Trust is a tax advantaged estate planning tool that uses your assets to provide income for a charity during your lifetime and then transfers your assets to the heirs of your choice How to do this Establish a trust plan You donate money or any other asset to a trust designed to distribute a specific payout to ALBA typically for a specific number of years At the end of the term the fully appreciated value of the principal in the trust will be distributed to your designated heirs Your directions are carried out by the trustee you designated when you created the trust Why do it There are three primary reasons 1 Give to charity The trustee uses the trust assets to make distributions to a designated charity during your lifetime or for any other specified period of time The trustee may pay the designated charity a fixed percentage of the trust determined annually or a fixed amount every year based on the initial value of the trust when funded At the end of the trust term the principal reverts either to you or to any beneficiaries you designated when you created the trust Most charitable lead trusts leave the remaining assets to beneficiaries other than the original donor This is called a non grantor lead trust A trust in which the principal reverts to the donor is called a grantor lead trust 2 The tax advantages If you establish a non grantor lead trust during your lifetime you receive a gift tax deduction for the current value of the income interest payable to the charity If the trust is established at your death pursuant to your will provisions your estate can take the value of the income interest as an estate tax deduction The practical result of this deduction is a discounted valuation of the transferred assets for gift and or estate tax purposes Therefore you transfer more for less taxable valuation In addition once the assets are transferred to the trust the appreciation realized in the trust transfers to the ultimate heir with no additional gift or estate tax implications for you The Charitable Lead Trust may be an excellent tool to meet your CURRENT Charitable donation desires with an efficient and tax advantaged transfer to heirs at a specific date in the future 3 Compare with a charitable remainder trust A charitable lead trust makes distributions to a charity during the term of the trust and then distributes the assets to you your estate or designated beneficiaries A charitable remainder trust pays you during your lifetime and gives the trust assets to a charity at a future date Together these tools may afford you significant financial planning advantages based upon your goals and objectives Donating Insurance Policies Life insurance and annuities have long played an important role in charitable giving Whether you donate an older policy that you no longer need or start a new policy to fund a major charitable project life insurance offers a unique way to turn relatively modest annual payments into a sizable charitable gift There are some basic ways you can support ALBA by using life insurance 1 Name ALBA as your successor beneficiary For example you own a policy and have named your partner as the beneficiary You could name ALBA as successor
