Did you know that nearly a third of annual giving occurs in December? As you can imagine, that makes it an important month for the LPS Foundation. Beyond holiday cheer, many donors choose to give in December because of the tax advantages it provides.  Below are some of the ways that you can make a difference for LPS students and staff as well as reduce your tax liability. Donations can be subject to certain restrictions, so please check with a tax advisor for specifics.

Tax Deductions

As a 501(c)(3) charity, your gift to LPS Foundation may be able to be claimed as a charitable contribution deduction against your taxable income. The gift can reduce the tax you pay based on the income bracket you are in. For more details, check with your tax advisor.

Donor-Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is like a charitable investment account. It provides flexibility and convenience by allowing you to make a deductible contribution today and invest your contribution so it can potentially grow tax-free over time.

Give Directly from your IRA

If you are 70 ½ or older, you can give to a nonprofit organization like LPS Foundation via a qualified charitable distribution (QCD). QCDs can be counted toward satisfying your required minimum distributions (RMDs) for the year, reducing your tax liability. Certain rules must be met with this type of donation so be sure to work with a tax professional when considering QCDs.

Stock Appreciation

A charitable gift of appreciated stock can be advantageous for you and the LPS Foundation. As long as you’ve owned the stock for more than a year, you can donate shares directly to LPS Foundation and avoid paying capital gains taxes. Win/win.

Legacy Gift

A legacy gift gives you the chance to have a significant impact without expending any resources today. Contact Beth Best, Executive Director, for more information about leaving a legacy for LPS students and staff. 

This is not tax advice so consult with your tax advisor before implementing any of these strategies.  No matter when or how you elect to give, we appreciate you!
