Real Estate Do you own a vacation home or rental property that takes up too much of your time with endless projects and oversight of the tenants? Consider making a donation of the property directly to the Fresno Rescue Mission. For your generous gift, you will receive an income tax deduction and avoid paying the capital gains tax that you would have paid if you sold the property yourself.
OTHER WAYS TO GIVE
There are many other ways of contributing to the ministries of the Fresno Rescue Mission, especially if you have property that you originally purchased to cover a need, and now the need no longer exists. You may also want to leave a gift in memory of or in honor of someone. Below are some suggestions:
- Gifts of Stock – You may contribute through a gift of stock. At this time you can still receive a tax deduction for the market value of the stock and can avoid capital gains.
- Life Insurance – One of the simplest ways to make a gift in the future is to name a charitable beneficiary to receive all or a portion of the proceeds of a policy no longer needed for its original purpose.
- Memorial Gifts – As an enduring tribute to a family member or loved one, the Fresno Rescue Mission Foundation would be happy to assist you in choosing an appropriate commemoration for your gift in honor of or in memory of someone special to you.
- Gifts of Real Estate - Donate your home, property, or business.
