When you give appreciated stock, we’ll sell it and you’ll eliminate all the capital gains tax you would have paid had you sold the stock yourself. Your gift will be deductible at the day of delivery’s full fair market value (assuming you have held it for more than one year).
Donate Your Insurance Policy
A gift of a life insurance policy you no longer need makes a perfect year-end gift. To qualify as a deductible gift, the IIT Madras Foundation must become the policy owner. For most types of insurance policies, your tax deduction is usually the lesser of the cost basis or the fair market value of the policy.
Gift From IRA
If you are 70½ or older, you can transfer any amount up to $100,000 annually directly from your IRA. The transfer doesn’t generate taxable income or a tax deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your tax deductions.
Bequest in Your Will or Trust
You can make a charitable bequest in any amount to the IIT Madras Foundation.
