Like a charitable savings account, you can use a public or private foundation to recommend how much and how often you direct money towards The Doorways. You can contribute to the advised fund as often as you like and recommend grants to The Doorways whenever you want.

A charitable bequest is the easiest and most flexible way that you can make a lasting impact at The Doorways with your generosity. Bequests can be a specific amount, sized by percentages, or a residual portion of your will or trust.

By designating The Doorways as a beneficiary, you can make a gift of your unused retirement assets through your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), pension, or any other tax-deferred plan to further our work. Your assets are not taxed upon death and the estate will benefit from a charitable deduction for the gift.

By supporting The Doorways through stocks and bonds, you avoid capital gains tax on the sale of the appreciated assets. Stocks and bonds can be transferred directly to The Doorways Investment account.

* There are special rules for valuing a gift of stock. The value of a charitable gift of stock is determined by taking the mean between the high and low stock price on the date of the gift. Mutual fund shares are valued using the closing price for the fund on the date of the gift.

Making a gift of appreciated real estate, like a home, vacation property, underdeveloped land, farmland, or commercial property, can have a lasting impact on The Doorways. The property may be given by signing a deed transferring full or part ownership of the asset.

Note: The property’s fair market value is established by an independent appraisal.

A charitable remainder trust helps you reduce your taxable income while supporting The Doorways. Establish an irrevocable trust that disperses income to your non-charitable beneficiaries for a specific term. Once that term ends, the remainder of the trust is donated to The Doorways.
