Bequests are provisions in wills to leave a gift to GDF. Charitable bequests are fully deductible from the estate and can significantly reduce estate taxes on the balance of the estate. Bequests may be specified as a gift of cash or securities, real estate or other property. Alternatively, they may take the form of a percentage of the total estate. A donor may consider a residuary bequest, which is a gift of all or a portion of one’s estate after other conditions are met.
A gift of appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual funds that have been held more than one year is a popular alternative to contributing cash. Through a gift of securities you may avoid the capital gains taxes on the appreciation and receive a charitable income tax deduction.
