MEMORIAL AND TRIBUTE GIFTS:
You can make an enduring tribute to a family member, friend or other loved
one whether you contribute today or plan for a deferred gift. Your gift can
be in memory of someone special or in honor of an event, such as a wedding,
anniversary, birthday, graduation or other special occasion.
GIFTS OF APPRECIATED ASSETS:
You may find that gifts of stocks that have appreciated in value may provide
several advantages to you when compared to making a cash donation. You can
deduct the fair market value of qualified non-cash property and pay no capital
gains tax, provided you have held the asset for more than one year.
You may also want to make a gift of an asset that can be
claimed as a capital loss. If you own securities worth less
than what you paid for them, you have an additional advantage
when you donate the securities to Mary Ryder Home. You can
sell the securities, make a gift of the proceeds to Mary Ryder
Home and claim a loss on the sale, as well as a charitable
deduction for your gift.
