Credit Card or Mobile Pay

Stocks or Securities

Making a gift of stocks or securities offers you the chance to support work within your community while also receiving important personal financial benefits. Securities and mutual funds that have increased in value and been held for more than one year are one of the most popular assets to use. Through a gift of appreciated stock, you receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the securities, while also helping you avoid capital gains taxes on appreciated stock.

Donating crypto is not only beneficial to your community, but may also be strategic for you. In addition to supporting local kids and families in the areas of education and financial stability, you may receive a federal income tax deduction equal to the full fair market value and avoid paying capital gains tax on an appreciated asset. 

IRA Charitable Rollover/QCD

Using your traditional IRA to make a charitable gift to Heart of Indiana United Way offers you the opportunity to make an impact locally while also receiving important personal tax benefits. If you are at least 70 ½ years old, you can make an annual contribution of up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualified nonprofit organization such as Heart of Indiana United Way. Your IRA contribution allows you to satisfy all or part of your required minimum distribution—tax-free. (Tax ID/EIN# 35-0996148)

Donor Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving vehicle that provides an immediate tax benefit to you, and allows you to grant funds to causes that matter to you. With a DAF, you recommend how much and how often money is granted to Heart of Indiana United Way and other qualified charities during your lifetime.

You can recommend a grant or recurring grants now for immediate impact or use your fund as a tool for future charitable gifts. When you pass away, your children can carry on your legacy of giving through your established Donor Advised Fund.
