Supporting Camp at the End of the Year

Supporting Camp at the End of the Year

With the end of the year approaching, we know that you are thinking carefully about the causes that are most meaningful to you. As you finalize your year-end giving decisions, consider a few tax-smart ways to make a gift that can significantly impact Camp Dudley and Camp Kiniya. Before making any decision, please consult with your tax advisor or accountant.

Make a Gift of Appreciated Securities

Gifts to Camp Dudley, Inc. of stock, bonds, mutual funds, or other long-term appreciated assets generally can receive a double tax benefit. Most people can take a charitable tax deduction for the full fair market value of the gift on the day of transfer, and you are not taxed on your capital gain! See details here to transfer appreciated securities. Please check with your broker regarding year-end transfer times that may be required. 

Make a Gift from Your Donor-Advised Fund

Take advantage of the funds you already set aside for charitable purposes by recommending a distribution from your donor-advised fund.

Give Directly From Your Individual Retirement Account (IRA)

If you are 70 ½ or older, individuals can generally make a tax-free Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) of up to $100,000 to Camp Dudley, Inc. directly from your IRA. A QCD may also satisfy your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) and offers tax savings even if you do not itemize deductions. 

Access Your Employer’s Matching Gift Benefit

Many companies offer an employer-sponsored matching gift program as an added benefit to their employees. These programs provide you with another way to increase the impact of your giving. Check with your human resources department or manager to discover what might be available and how to apply. It is easier than you might think.

Give the Gift of Cash

The simplest and most common way to give is with the gift of cash. Individual donors who itemize on their tax returns can deduct up to 60% of adjusted gross income (AGI) for cash contributions to qualifying charities such as Camp Dudley, Inc. We accept cash gifts in the form of checks, credit card payments, Venmo transfers, and good old-fashioned dollar bills.

We hope you find this information helpful in your year-end planning. Thank you for all you do for Camp Dudley and our campers. We wish you a healthy and peaceful holiday season.
