Cash or check
Please make checks payable to United Way for Greater Austin. You may mail in your contribution or contact us to let us know you’ll be making a gift.
If you have appreciated securities (stocks, bonds, mutual funds) that you have owned for at least one year, you may want to consider contributing them as a gift to United Way for Greater Austin. It’s a generous and smart way to invest in the health and vitality of our community. Benefits include:
- Avoid capital gains taxes
By contributing securities that have appreciated in value to United Way, you avoid the capital gains taxes you would otherwise owe if you sold the securities for your personal benefit.
- Take a charitable tax deduction
For federal income tax purposes (including alternative minimum tax purposes), you can deduct the value of the securities on the date of your contribution.
- Give a larger gift
A gift of stock may allow you to make a larger charitable contribution than would be possible with cash or payroll deduction.
A planned gift may include gifts of stock, bonds, mutual funds or real estate given to United Way for Greater Austin either as an outright gift or a gift in a bequest, trust or gift annuity. This is a way to continue your investment in the long-term and create a legacy of helping Austin thrive.
A bequest or donation that provides United Way for Greater Austin with annual gifts creates a lasting impact on the Greater Austin community.
