There are many ways to give to Una Voce Chamber Choir. Most provide significant benefits to the donor in addition to the philanthropic reward. You may wish to seek the advice of your lawyer or tax advisor in the matter of gifts and estate planning.
Gifts of Cash
The simplest way to make a gift is cash. It entitles you to a current charitable income tax deduction for the amount given subject to current restrictions. Click the link above to donate!
Gifts of Life Insurance
A life insurance policy which is no longer needed for family protection can be assigned to Una Voce Chamber Choir as owner or you could buy a new policy with DSQF as the permanent beneficiary on which premiums are deductible.
Gifts of Real Estate or Residence
Use of the full current market value of a personal residence of farm can enable the donor to realize impressive tax benefits. The donor can arrange to make this gift and retain the use of the property until death or death of the beneficiary. This will reduce the taxable estate while providing current tax savings. The charitable deduction will equal market value less the value of the retained rights of use. Donations of other types of land or property are also welcome gifts.
Gifts of Bequest
A good way to remember the Una Voce Chamber Choir is to include a gift in your will. A bequest of any size is welcome and ensures continued growth. The bequest will reduce the size of the taxable portion of the estate and the size of the federal tax liability. Bequests should be made to the Una Voce Chamber Choir.
Gifts of Personal Property
Assets such as stamp and coin collections, gems and jewelry, artwork, rare books, boats, and similar collectibles of value can subject the donor to heavy income taxes if sold during his or her lifetime. If the donor chooses to give the property to the Una Voce Chamber Choir in the form of a bequest under the terms of a will, the donor will avoid income and estate taxes in the transfer of such property.
Gifts of Appreciated Securities
Most contributions of long term appreciated securities, including closely held stock in family businesses, eliminates the payment of capital gains tax on a lifetime sale of the securities. Gifts of appreciated securities also entitle you to a charitable income tax deduction which is usually equal to the fair market value at the time of the gift.
