These donations methods may also provide special tax benefits:

Appreciated Assets

Making a gift of publicly traded stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or real estate may provide greater tax benefits than giving cash.

If you are 70 1/2 or older, you may direct charitable gifts from IRAs on a toal tax-free basis, which can also count toward your required minimum distribution.

Donor-Advised Fund (DAF)

Consider using or opening a Donor-Advised Fund, as they are simple to use and offer convenient donating options, plus increased giving potential.
