This pushes Heart for Lebanon to honor our investors by planning for long-term success and remaining accountable in how we steward our resources. Every dollar counts.

Invest Through Securities
You can make a bigger impact by donating long-term appreciated securities, including stock, bonds, and mutual funds, directly to Heart for Lebanon. Compared with donating cash, or selling your appreciated securities and contributing the after-tax proceeds, you may be able to automatically increase your gift and your tax deduction. For example when you donate stock to Heart for Lebanon, you’ll generally take a tax deduction for the full fair market value. This type of giving enables many people to give more than they otherwise could have by reducing their ordinary income taxes and avoiding capital gains taxes.

Invest From Your IRA
If you are 70½ or older, you can give your required minimum distribution (or any amount up to $100,000) from your IRA as a tax-free rollover gift. Many donors also give from their IRA at their passing, designating Heart for Lebanon as a beneficiary; such gifts avoid income and death taxes.

A donor-advised fund is a charitable giving vehicle created to manage charitable donations on behalf of organizations, families, or individuals. You can participate in our donor-advised fund by donating cash, stocks, or non-publicly traded assets such as real estate, private business interests and private company stock.
