You may also establish a recurring gift. Please contact Jen Coates at to discuss setting up this simple gift.

Stocks, Bonds and Mutual Funds. Gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds and mutual funds results in a charitable deduction for the full market value of the donated asset, even if it was purchased for less, which helps in avoiding capital gains tax. There are special rules for valuing a gift of stock—the value of the charitable gift of stock is determined by taking the mean between the high and low stock prices on the date of the gift. Mutual fund shares are valued using the closing price on the date of the gift.

IRA Charitable Rollover. In 2015, Congress enacted a permanent extension of the IRA charitable rollover. As a result, individuals age 70 ½ or older can make gifts directly from their IRA to charity. An IRA charitable rollover is a way you can help our community, plus benefit this year.

Real Property. The Foundation refers all gifts of real property to the Taos Foundation for Property Gifts, a supporting organization of the Foundation, created specifically to hold real property. A copy of the Gift Acceptance Policy can be provided as a separate document.
