Matching Gifts
Many employers will match their employee’s charitable contributions. It is worth asking your Human Resources if your company has Matching Gift Program as these programs are opportunities to make your gift go even further!
Planned Giving
Bequests and trusts have been an important source of support for Skokie Valley. Contact our office or your financial planner to learn more about opportunities to make a legacy gift to Skokie Valley.
You may wish to give Skokie Valley a gift of securities, including stocks, bonds, or mutual funds that have appreciated in value, or a gift of land or buildings. Gifts of publicly traded securities and real property provide you with a double tax benefit. First, you can avoid capital gains tax and, second, you can receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the gift.
                                                                                                    IRA Distributions
You can also use your qualified charitable donation to meet all or part of your IRA's required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year. Traditional IRA owners must start taking RMDs at age 70½ or face tax penalties. Skokie Valley must receive your donation by December 31 for you to apply it to that year's tax return.
Contact the office at 847-674-3473 or with any questions about the options above.
