Additional Giving Options

Another way to support REC is through donations of stock or IRA Charitable Rollovers.

 

Stocks

REC can accept gifts of appreciated stock. A gift of appreciated stock made directly to REC can have significant tax benefits for donors, as it allows the donor to avoid paying the capital gains tax on the sale of the stock. 

 

REC has created a brokerage account through Timberline Bank and WealthSource Partners for the purpose of accepting gifts of appreciated stock. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Landen Fledderjohn (landen@rec4kids.com). He can connect you to our brokerage account representative.  

 

IRA Charitable Rollovers

Additionally, REC can also accept IRA Charitable Rollovers, also known as Qualified Charitable Distributions. These donations also have a tax benefit for donors age 70 ½ or older. IRA rules allow donors to make a contribution directly from an IRA account to REC without paying taxes on the distribution. 

 

If you are interested in making a gift of appreciated stock or an IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution, please contact your financial advisor.
