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.
