Year-End Charitable Gift Opportunities

Year-End Charitable Gift Opportunities

Shared by long-time friend and supporter Gerald Archibald of The Bonadio Group:

It’s that time of year when people begin to think of ways to reduce their tax burden, with charitable giving being at the top of the list. As you likely have already experienced, with the state income and real estate tax deduction capped at $10,000, most taxpayers will find they no longer can itemize as the standard deduction is significantly higher. Unless you have significant medical expenses, interest expense or charitable contributions you will likely take the standard deduction. If you can itemize, making donations of appreciated stock to qualifying charities like Al Sigl continues to be an excellent way to avoid capital gains tax while taking a charitable deduction for the fair market value of the stock. For additional information on year-end gifting strategies please visit the links below.

There's Still Time For Year-End Charitable Gift Strategies

Mike's Story

"My first experience with Al Sigl was attending CP Rochester's preschool program. My involvement came full circle when I turned 16 and I was looking to get my driver’s license. My high school counselor suggested Rochester Rehabilitation’s DriveOn program. They helped me learn to drive and determine which adaptations my car needed. That experience in particular changed my entire view of what was possible. The sense of independence I felt getting my license helped me focus on a future where disability didn’t matter."

"I credit Al Sigl and especially my family for teaching me early on in life that a disability is not an impediment. That lesson has stayed with me. Every year more and more people turn to Al Sigl Member Agencies for help and support as they work to reach their goals. I hope you will join me in making a gift today to recognize their achievements and encourage us all to envision a future full of possibilities."

-Mike Messenger, tax accountant at PriceWaterhouseCoopers, LLP, and volunteer chair of the Al Sigl Community WalkAbout
