Non-Cash Gifts Information

Cash gifts are commonly seen as the only way to financially assist TFC Global to provide support for the trucking community. During a time when many stocks are experiencing high returns, stock giving may be an effective addition to or alternative to cash giving.

If you own any appreciating property, like stocks, mutual funds, bonds, or real estate, there are three major advantages to asset versus giving cash:

Increase in Cash Flow

Cash flow often presents a challenge for many individuals. Even an individual with substantial net work may have difficulty meeting current financial obligations. Highly appreciated property may not produce substantial cash flow. Many times, stocks and bonds produce cash flow, in the form of dividends, of only one to two perfect of their net worth. A gift of these types of properties may result in an immediate tax deduction, which in creases cash flow. A tax deduction can offset long-term cash flow loss for a number of years.
Example: Tom Smith owns stock valued at $100,000. This stock is currently paying dividends of $2,000. Tom gifts the stock to TFC Global through a brokerage account. In his 46.6% combined federal and state income tax bracket, he will reduce his income taxes payable this year y $46,000, or a current cash flow increase of $44,600. Obviously, his cash flow will be reduced in future years by the $2,000 in dividends, but it will be many years before the future cash flow would equal the current benefit of the tax savings.

Ability to Make a Potentially Larger Gift

For many of us, the desire to give exceeds the amount of cash we have available to give. If you have access to investments that can be transferred to fund a gift, without taking from cash flow used to meet your budgetary needs, your giving is not limited to cash available.

Avoidance of Capital Gains Tax

If you sell appreciated property and make a gift of the proceeds, you will be taxed on the appreciation. This is called capital gains tax. But that tax is avoidable when you give appreciated property directly to TFC Global. Note that your charitable deduction will be for the full fair market value of the property at the time of the transfer.
Example: Mike Jones purchased real estate in 1978 for $20,000, and today it is valued at $100,000. If he sold the real estate, he would be taxed on the $80,000 gain. In an assumed 27% combined federal and state capital gains tax bracket, he would pay a tax of $21,600, leaving only $78,400 to give.
Assuming Mr. Johnson made a gift of the remainder, he would realize an income tax savings of approximately $36,500, assuming he is in a 46.6% combined federal and state income tax bracket.
Let’s assume, however, that in stead of selling the real estate, he gave it to LEAD International Foundation and the ministry sold the property. Mr. Jones would receive an income tax charitable deduction for the full value of the asset, of $100,000, thus saving approximately $46,600 in taxes. In addition, he would avoid the $21,600 tax on the capital gains.
There is considerable difference. Generally, the greater the appreciation of the property, the greater your benefit of giving the property rather than selling it and giving cash.
