–Mail cash or checks (payable to the Salina Area United Way) to: SAUW, 210 E Walnut, Suite 100, Salina, KS 67401. Mailed gifts must be postmarked with a 2017 date.
–Stocks: By using stocks which have greatly increased in value since their purchase, you can conserve cash for other uses and maximize the value of your charitable gifts. You can deduct the fair market value of non-cash property and you pay no capital gains tax. The gifts must be long-term appreciated property (held for at least a year and a day.) This can dramatically reduce the cost of making a charitable gift or increase the amount you can afford to give. Please have your financial advisor contact us at 785-827-1312 for specific instructions on how to transfer stock.
–IRA: Making a distribution directly from your IRA to us could possible have some additional tax advantages for you. Please visit with your financial advisor to see if this method of giving would be advantageous for your personal financial circumstances.
