IRA charitable rollover
A permanent giving option. Many donors feel that directly transferring funds from IRAs is a great way to help families and create a legacy. This is now a permanent option.
Gifts of property
You can donate appreciated real estate, such as a home, vacation property, undeveloped land, farmland, ranch, or commercial property. This is an effective way to fund a legacy gift that will assist families with building sustainable, decent homes.
You can make this generous gift while still using the property throughout your lifetime, and you may even receive a tax deduction for your gift.
Gifts of stock
Stocks, bonds, and mutual funds that have appreciated in value are among the most financially advantageous ways to ensure that Habitat for Humanity can continue to provide affordable, safe housing.
You may receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value of the stock (up to a maximum of 30 percent of your adjusted gross income) and avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the value of the stock.
Normally, when you redeem savings bonds, you or the person to whom you leave your bonds will owe income tax on the appreciation. Since Habitat for Humanity is tax-exempt, 100 percent of your gift of savings bonds will support our mission to bring people together to build homes and strong communities.
