Other Ways of Giving to the DWT

  • Appreciated Stock

Rather than a gift of cash, donating highly appreciated stock benefits both the DWT as well as the donor. By contributing appreciated stock, the donor gets a charitable deduction on the full value of what was transferred and the donor does not have to pay capital gains tax.

  • Charitable Trusts

Charitable Lead/Remainder Trusts are sophisticated elements of estate planning, which can provide substantial benefits to both the donor and the DWT - your estate planner will be very familiar with both types of trusts and what needs to be done to get them established..

  • Including the DWT in your Will

You may have thought about making a significant donation to the DWT but also recognize the need to maintain control of your assets during your lifetime. A will can name the DWT as a beneficiary and accomplish both of those goals. A will is a vital part of every estate plan, and we hope you will remember the DWT when you review your estate planning goals. The DWT can only be a beneficiary if explicitly named in the estate plan.

  • Life Insurance/Annuity Policies

An annuity or life insurance policy with the DWT as a beneficiary is another way that you can provide substantial benefit to the DWT, without making a substantial capital outlay at this time

  • IRA Charitable Rollover

The IRA Charitable Rollover allows individuals aged 70 and older to donate up to $100,000 from their IRAs and Roth IRAs to public charities without having distributions treated as taxable income.  The IRA Charitable Rollover provision was extended in the past, but may not necessarily exist in the future, so please consider making a gift through your IRA before the end of this year.
