Learn which assets are most commonly used to fund a gift.
One of the most common ways to make a gift to the Seminar Network is to write a check or make a gift using a credit card.
Giving appreciated stock that you have owned for more than one year is one of the most tax-advantaged ways to make charitable gifts. With careful planning, you can reduce your capital gains tax while supporting the Seminar Network.
A gift of your retirement assets, such as an employee retirement plan, IRA, or tax-sheltered annuity, is an excellent way to make a gift. A gift of these assets can shield you or your heirs from taxes while funding the Seminar Network’s future.
Life insurance is a valuable asset for making a charitable gift. You can make a gift of a life insurance policy without diminishing other investments or assets earmarked for family members.
A gift of real estate allows you to preserve your cash assets, receive tax and income advantages, and make a significant charitable gift to the Seminar Network.
A gift of artwork, coins, antiques, or other personal property can be an excellent way to support the Seminar Network.
Charitable gifts of closely held business interests offer a unique opportunity to accomplish your financial priorities, benefit from substantial tax savings, and provide significant support to The Seminar Network. If you have owned a business for at least one year which has appreciated in value, and you are now considering selling, making a gift of all or a portion of your ownership interest could make sense for you. The benefits of a charitable gift may apply if you own interests in a partnership, an LLC, an S corporation, or a closely held C corporation.
