Did You Know?
With the tax law changes for 2018, giving appreciated property (appreciated stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate, etc.) still allows a donor to avoid capital gains taxes on these outright gifts, regardless of whether they itemize deductions. And there are financial benefits for donating through an IRA, or by combining charitable gifts to various organizations to be distributed through a Donor Advised Fund. Check with your financial advisor for details.
REEF recently established a Legacy Society to recognize donors who have remembered REEF in their estate plan. Click here to download the form and become a member of REEF’s Legacy Society. Please contact us at giving@REEF.org to discuss your plans.
