Charitable giving is one of the hallmarks of the holiday season. Here are a few ways to give generously and save substantial tax dollars.
GIVE APPRECIATED STOCK
A gift of publicly-traded securities could be right for you if:
- Substantial gains in the stock market over the last 10 months make giving appreciated securities to Sigma Chi Foundation especially tax-smart this year.
- You would receive an income tax charitable deduction equal to their full market value and avoid capital gains tax on the securities that you contribute.

USE YOUR IRA RETIREMENT PLAN
An IRA charitable rollover gift could be right for you if:
- If you are 70 ½ or older, you can make a tax-free gift of up to $100,000 to Sigma Chi Foundation directly from your IRA account.
- Your gift is not included in taxable income from your IRA, but it does count toward your required minimum distribution.
