Tax-Wise Giving 

1.    Charitable gifts of Appreciated Stocks – this is an excellent time to give appreciated stocks to Pui Tak Christian School. You will receive a tax deduction for the fair market value, and you will increase your impact by donating the stocks rather than the proceeds for their sales. The chart below provides an example of how you can save money on taxes and empower us to have a greater ministry impact.

2.    Charitable giving through an IRA distribution – as you may know, Congress has passed a permanent IRA rollover legislation, which allows individuals age 701/2 or older to withdraw funds (up to $100,000) from their IRA and make a charitable gift without adding a penny to taxable income. This also counts as a part of your required minimum distributions.

A gift of appreciated stock compared to a gift of cash generated from the sale of appreciated stock.
