Planned Giving

Stocks can be donated to the Junior League of Martin County. If you are going to donate stock, please donate those that have increased in value, preferably those producing a low yield. To preserve tax advantages, you must give the securities to us rather than liquidate them and give us the proceeds.
If you choose to donate stock that has increased in value and you have held the stock for more than one year, you pay no capital gains tax when you make the gift. You are entitled to a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the stock. The income deduction is limited to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income. Excess can be carried forward for five additional years.
If you have stock losses, sell the stock and realize the loss to the extent allowed for tax purposes. Then, contribute the cash to the Junior League of Martin County and take the deduction.
Making a charitable gift of mutual fund shares offer the same tax advantage as a donation of appreciated stock. We recommend beginning the process well before December 31st due to the complexities involved in the transfer of mutual fund shares.
You can contribute a life insurance policy to us by naming the Junior League of Martin County as the owner of the policy or simply as the beneficiary. If the JLMC is named as the owner and beneficiary of the life insurance, in most cases, you will be entitled to an income tax deduction limited to the lower of the fair market value of the policy or your cost basis in the contract.
You can make a gift of real estate to the Junior League of Martin County. Check with your financial advisor to learn if this is a beneficial giving option for you.
Life income gifts are a way for you to receive an income as a result of making a charitable gift. Dependent upon the plan selected, payments can be fixed or variable. They can be for you or other beneficiaries of your choice.
