Benefits of Becoming a Donor
Anyone with the desire to help others can be a philanthropist. When you make a charitable gift to the Community Foundation for Kettering, you’ll enjoy the rewarding feeling of knowing you’re helping people right in your own community.
And there are major financial benefits and tax advantages when you make charitable gifts through the Foundation:
- Donations qualify for the maximum available deduction for charitable contributions in the year the gift is made.
- Through our relationship with The Dayton Foundation, we provide access to professional financial advisors who are qualified to offer solutions for reducing your tax liability.
- When donating appreciated stock or other assets, you can receive a tax deduction for the full fair-market value of the stock on the date of the gift and avoid paying long-term capital gains tax on the increased value.
- Or you may donate online or via your mobile device through The Dayton Foundation’s Donor Express system using your VISA, MasterCard or American Express credit card.
