Gifts In Cash
Cash donations are the easiest and most common charitable gift. As a registered nonprofit organization, a donation to AFCHS of up to 50% of your adjusted gross income is tax deductible. A donation in excess of 50% of your adjusted gross income can be carried over five years.
Gifts of Property
Donations of appreciated property (such as mutual funds, securities, and real estate) carry extra tax benefits. You can deduct the fair-market value of property and you can also reduce the capital gains tax. You can deduct the fair-market value of the property up to 30% of your adjusted gross income; similar to a cash gift, any excess can be carried over for five years. The capital gains tax can be reduced as long as the property has been held for over one year.
A gift annuity is the transfer of a specific amount of money, securities, or real estate in exchange for a regular payment for the rest of your life and/or the life of a loved one. The charitable portion of the gift can be claimed as a deduction and a portion of each annuity payment is not taxed as income.
We rely on the generosity of our members to meet our day-to-day expenses, such as pet food, utility bills, and office supplies. By building a strong endowment fund, we will be more capable of meeting our operational expenses. Donating to the Endowment Fund will help give AFCHS a secure future.
