Corporate Matching Gifts 

You can increase the value of your gift — often up to 100% — if you or your spouse works for a company with a matching gift program. Please check with your human resources department for more information. 

Realize Tax Benefits 

Gifts of Stock: If you own low-yielding stocks, mutual funds or other securities that are worth more than you paid for them, you can contribute them to FAC, get a tax deduction for the full current value, and avoid the capital gains tax you would have incurred if you had sold ​the assets outright. 

IRA Transfers: If you own a traditional or a Roth IRA, and are age 70 ½ or older, you can directly transfer up to $100,000 a year to FAC, without having to pay taxes on the withdrawal. Note: This rule does not apply to employer sponsored retirement plans.
