Gifts of stock, bonds, treasuries, and mutual funds that have increased in value since their purchase can provide additional benefits allowing you to receive a charitable income tax deduction and avoid capital gains tax. Physical and electronic transfers are available.
You can give real estate (homes, cabins, commercial buildings, farm land, and condos) or tangible personal property.
Do you have a life insurance policy that you no longer need? Giving it to Girl Scouts can be a way to combine charitable objectives with tax advantages for you.
