End of Year Charitable Giving

Help Keep Heritage Pointe Safe and Secure


Investment Assets

  • Stock market values appreciated during 2021. Your investments may have appreciated dramatically.
    Gifts of appreciated assets are fully deductible up to 30% of adjusted gross income. Any excess can generally be carried forward and be deductible for up to five years.
  • Donating appreciated stock, either to create a donor-advised fun (DAF) at the Jewish Community Foundation of Orange County or adding such securities to an existing DAF, is an excellent way to maximize tax saving from such gifts as well as provide you with a vehicle from which you can make recommendations for future charitable grants.

IRA Charitable Donations

  • Many individuals over age 70 ½ find it advantageous to transfer funds directly from their IRAs to charities. The IRS Code permits these tax-free transfers up to $100,000 each year. They are excluded from income, can be used regardless of whether or not you itemize, and satisfy the IRA require distribution rules. Before this year ends, review your IRAs.
  • Contributions can be made to The Heritage Fund which provide financial support for Residents in need.

Estate Taxes and Lifetime Giving

  • Please consult your tax or estate planning professional advisers to guide you in maximizing these benefits and other tax planning strategies for you and Heritage Pointe.
  • We ask that you do your part today by giving your end of year charitable tax donation to Heritage Pointe.
