Make a meaningful impact on the important work of ABS-CBN Foundation International (AFI) by donating appreciated securities or mutual funds. By making this contribution, you not only contribute to our mission but also enjoy significant advantages for yourself.
When you donate appreciated securities or mutual funds, you have the opportunity to potentially reduce or eliminate federal capital gains taxes associated with the transfer. Additionally, you may qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction based on the fair market value of the securities at the time of the donation.
Securities are a popular method to support our cause, primarily through an outright gift. By donating securities to AFI, you can enjoy equivalent income tax savings compared to writing a check, while also reaping the additional benefit of bypassing capital gains taxes on the transfer, which can reach as high as 20%.
You can secure the future of your brokerage or investment account by designating it as a Transfer on Death (TOD) account. With this arrangement, the account will be distributed to one or multiple individuals or charitable organizations of your choice after your passing.
*Transfer on Death accounts are subject to state laws. For more information about this gift option, kindly consult your bank representative or investment advisor.
Submit a few details and see if this gift is right for you.
Don’t forget to let us know about your gift of appreciated securities and your intentions. This will grant you the privilege of being recognized as a lifelong member of AFI and provide us with a chance to talk about how your gift can contribute to our goals.
