IRA Charitable Rollover
The IRA Charitable Rollover legislation passed by Congress ended on 12/31/2013. That law allowed individuals who are 70 1/2 or older to make direct gifts from an IRA to charitable organizations. Donations must have been distributed from the account by 12/31/13. As soon as Houston Public Media learns the status of 2014 legislation, we will notify members via the website and selected electronic and postal mailing lists. To learn more, or be placed on the distribution list, please contact Stephanie Carroll at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 713.743.8458
Stock or securities
A gift of appreciated securities – either publicly traded or from a private company – may provide greater tax advantages than gifts of cash. With a gift of stock, you can deduct the fair market value as a charitable gift and completely avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation. For specific transfer instructions, please ask your advisor to contact UBS Financial Services, office of Rick Figueroa, at 713.985.3463 or email email@example.com. If you have other questions or need more information please contact Stephanie Carroll at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 713.743.8458
