smart giving options

four smarter giving options

Rather than donating cash, many of our donors are opting for smarter giving, non-cash options that not only
support our mission but may also offer a variety of tax benefits. Learn more about giving stocks, cryptocurrency, gifts from your IRA, and making a grant from a donor-advised fund through our partnership with FreeWill.

Donating Stocks & Bonds

Donating stocks allows you to avoid capital gains tax and often take a charitable deduction for the full value of the asset. Use our online stock tool from FreeWill to donate stock so we can track your gift, send you the correct receipt, and you can get the tax savings you deserve.

If you prefer to donate through your broker, access our transfer information here to notify us of your gift.

Giving from Your IRA

If you are 70.5 or older, giving from your IRA can help reduce your taxable income — and for those over 73 who must take a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD), an IRA gift is a simple way to fulfill it! Use our online tool through FreeWill to give from your IRA. Here, you can auto-complete your paperwork, and we can track your gift to send you the proper tax receipts.

 Easily Make a Grant from Your Donor-Advised Fund

Donor-Advised Funds (DAFs) are investment accounts for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations today. We have partnered with FreeWill to offer our donors a simple and secure way to make a gift through your DAF.

Use our secure DAF tool to link with your DAF automatically, allowing you to recommend how you’d like your gift to be used and notify Habitat of your intentions.
