As you are aware, your charitable giving has a direct impact on our work and benefits many veterans and military families across the country. Strategic giving can provide you with the most beneficial and comprehensive tax benefits to you as the donor.

There are many paths to consider in determining which giving strategies are right for you. Planned giving frequently involves giving through Donor Advised Funds, creating legacy donations through estate planning, as in a will or trust, or by naming Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services direct as the beneficiary of an IRA, life insurance policy or any brokerage account.

One of the keys to unlocking the biggest tax savings for a donor is to consider gifts of appreciated assets – these could include stocks and securities, real estate, even an interest in a company or business that you may have. Think – GIVE FIRST and then sell to take the deduction of the donation AND to avoid or limit, paying capital gains taxes on the appreciation of the asset.
