Planned, Tax-Smart Ways to Give

Thank you for considering a donation to Family Equality! We want to help you give smart, and there are plenty of ways to secure significant tax benefits while advancing our mission. Check them out below! 

Qualified charitable distributions

If you are 70 and a half years old or order, you can give up to $100,00 per year from your IRA.

Non-cash assets

Donating certain non-cash assets such as stock, bonds, securities, tangible personal property, or real estate can support our work for LGBTQ+ families — while providing you with significant tax benefits. 

Donor-advised funds (DFAs)

allows donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction and then recommend grants from the fund over time. Donors can contribute to the fund as frequently as they like, and then recommend grants to charitable organizations such as Family Equality whenever it makes sense for them.
