Through the philanthropic gifts of friends like you, Life Issues Institute reaches millions of people every day through our radio broadcasts, website and social media, as we seek to restore a culture of life in America and protect innocent life.
Life Issues Institute is 100 percent donor supported and your gifts are critical to our success! Gifts of cash are always appreciated; however, gifts of securities or other tangible assets can often maximize your gift while affording you significant tax benefits.
Discussing these options with your tax advisor will help you determine the best method for your charitable giving.
If you are age 70½, gifts made directly from your Individual Retirement Account count toward your minimum distribution requirement but are not added to your adjusted gross income, often resulting in significant tax savings.
Gifts of appreciated securities are an efficient way to give. Securities held for more than one year may be deducted at full market value and, since they were not sold, there are no capital gains to report.
Including Life Issues Institute as a beneficiary of your life insurance or retirement account is a simple, easy way to make a significant gift to continue your legacy of support.
Real estate or other tangible assets may be given to Life Issues Institute during your lifetime or transferred upon your death, thereby lowering estate taxes due.
