Donating appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, is an easy and tax-effective way for you to make a gift to Grand Canyon Association. You may avoid paying capital gains tax on the sale of appreciated stock and receive a charitable income tax deduction. At the same time, you’ll support our mission of inspiring people to protect and enhance Grand Canyon National Park for present and future generations.
If you’d like to make a gift of appreciated securities, please contact us.
IRA CHARITABLE ROLLOVER
The new IRA charitable rollover laws allow individual taxpayers 70 ½ years and older to donate up to $100,000 from their individual retirement accounts (IRAs) and Roth IRAs to charitable nonprofits like Grand Canyon Association, fulfilling distribution requirements and at the same time avoiding taxable income.
If you’d like to initiate an IRA charitable rollover, please contact us.
EMPLOYER MATCHED GIFTS
Many companies have a matching gift policy, which can often include both current and retired employees. Some companies even provide matching funds for volunteer hours to nonprofits like Grand Canyon Association.
Find out if your gift to Grand Canyon could be doubled or tripled by contacting your human resources representative!
Tom and I are deeply connected to the canyon. It is an inspirational place for us, and we feel compelled to share it with others. How? We simply invite them to join us there. After that, the canyon speaks for itself. Someone protected the Grand Canyon for us; it is our turn to protect it for those to come. We encourage everyone who loves the canyon to support it through GCA.”
