Gifts of Stock
A gift of appreciated securities (owned for more than one year) to LUNGevity Foundation can greatly benefit a donor by providing tax benefits through a charitable income tax deduction. This form will give you all the information your broker needs to transfer stocks and other securities.
You may also have your broker contact us at [email protected] or 312-407-6100 to transfer securities electronically directly to LUNGevity Foundation.
Government employees may donate to LUNGevity through the Combined Federal Campaign, CFC#12970. If you are not a federal or state employee, please check with your employer to ask if you have options for workplace donations to LUNGevity Foundation. Feel free to contact us at [email protected] if we may be of assistance in this process.
Talk to your employer about their Matching Gifts program. Many employers will match contributions you make to nonprofit organizations.
Are you looking for a way to increase the impact of your contribution to LUNGevity; or are unable to make a substantial charitable gift in your lifetime? A planned gift is a deferred contribution that you arrange now to benefit LUNGevity later.
There are many advantages to making a gift in your will or trust. It is easy to do; you can change your mind at any time; and it may reduce the taxes on your estate.
You can include a simple provision in your will or living trust or could consider naming LUNGevity as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy. The amount given to LUNGevity can be expressed as a dollar amount or as a percentage of the assets to be given.
Gifts made through a will are flexible and can be changed as individuals' circumstances in life change. Donors who make a gift through a will are automatically enrolled in LUNGevity’s Circle of Hope leadership giving society, reserved for a select group of individuals who have demonstrated an enduring commitment to the organization and its vision of a world where no one dies of lung cancer.
To learn more about these and other planned giving opportunities, contact Dulcy Hooper at [email protected], or speak with your estate planning professional.
