Gifts of Shares and Securities
This is a popular method of donating for some donors who wish to benefit from a significant tax savings. This method of giving can eliminate capital gains tax. For these types of gifts, AASRA issues the donor a tax receipt for the fair market value of the securities on the day they are traded.
Donate a "paid" policy and receive a tax receipt for the cash surrender value. Name AASRA as the owner and beneficiary of a new policy and receive tax receipts for every premium you pay.
By making an honor or memorial donation. Honor donations can be anything from recognizing someone's retirement, to a donation in lieu of a birthday gift.You can donate property today and continue to use it for a lifetime, while reducing your income taxes. If the donation is a principal residence, no capital gains are triggered. Consult your financial planner for more details on this method of giving.
