So, if your employer has such a program, the impact of your gift to APDA may be doubled! Check with your HR Department to see if your company has a matching gift policy. Stock Gifts: Did you know APDA accepts gifts of publicly traded securities? So, you can gift stock to APDA, rather than selling it and donating the proceeds. By doing this, you may receive the federal AND state charitable deduction and avoid paying capital gains tax. Both you and APDA benefit! IRA Designation: Make a difference today and save on taxes. It’s possible when you support APDA through your IRA. If you are 70½ Years Old and Older, you can give any amount (up to a maximum of $100,000) per year from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as the APDA without having to pay income taxes on the money. Gifts of any value $100,000 or less are eligible for this benefit and you can feel good knowing that you are making a difference at APDA. This popular gift option is commonly called the IRA charitable rollover, but you may also see it referred to as a qualified charitable distribution, or QCD for short. Beneficiary Designation: You may transfer assets to APDA by naming APDA as a beneficiary. You can name us as a beneficiary in your will, life insurance policy, or retirement or pension plan. For more information, or to notify APDA St. Louis Chapter of your intention to make any of these gifts, contact Director of Development Melissa Skrivan at email@example.com.
