Non-Cash Donations

Leadership Southern Maryland welcomes our friends and partners to explore a number of non-cash donation options.

  • Appreciated securities in the form of stock or mutual funds shares held for more than one year help you avoid capital gains taxes and earn a charitable tax deduction based on market value. We accept both closely held and publicly traded stock.
  • Real estate, if held for more than one year, usually provides the same tax benefits as gifts of securities.
  • Life insurance allows you to direct insurance policy proceeds to the organization.
  • Bequests (establish charitable funds through your will). A bequest is simple and can be advised by your heirs.

For more information , please contact LSM Executive Director Denise Foster, at or 301-862-7663.
Leadership Southern Maryland is qualified as a 501(c)(3) organization by the Internal Revenue Service (EIN#26-2989381). Contributions are deductible as charitable contributions to the extent permitted by law.
