Cash is the simplest and most convenient form of gift.
STOCKS & BONDS
Donating appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, is an easy and tax-effective way for you to make a gift to Outer Banks Community Foundation.
Donate appreciated real estate, such as a home, vacation property, undeveloped land, farm land, ranch or commercial property and receive a tax deduction for the appraised market value of the property and avoid capital gains taxes on the appreciation.
Donating retirement assets from an IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension or other tax-deferred plan is often the best tax smart asset to leave to charity because they are so heavily taxed when left to heirs.
When a charity is named as the owner or beneficiary of an existing or new life insurance policy, donors receive an immediate tax deduction of the cash surrender value of the policy. All premium payments made thereafter are also deductible as a charitable contribution.
