A gift of stock is one of the simplest and most tax-savvy ways to support LCE. Transfer appreciated securities (stocks, bonds, mutual funds) you have owned for at least a year to LCE, pay no capital gains tax, and receive a charitable deduction for the full fair-market value of your gift. Most importantly, you are helping improve the lives of low-income, vulnerable older adults. The entire transaction can be handled electronically — saving you time and effort.
For delivery instructions, please contact Director of Development & Communications, Billy Fettweis, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-304-5782.
By making a planned gift, you can create a lasting legacy to guarantee that LCE will be there for our older neighbors long into the future. Add a gift to LCE in your will, trust, or estate plan as a specific amount, or as a percentage of your estate.
