Gifts of Securities

A gift of appreciated securities generally offers a two-fold tax savings. First, because UJFis a charitable organization you avoid paying any capital gains tax on the increase in the value of the securities you transfer to the Federation. Second, you may receive an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the securities at the time of the gift. Contact the UJF office to learn more.


IRA Charitable Rollover

Individuals 70 ½ and over may distribute up to $100,000 per year tax free from an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) to UJF or another qualified charity. These distributions may count toward your Required Minimum Distribution. The potential tax savings is available both for donors who itemize and those who do not. Contact the UJF office to learn more.
