1. Cash. This is a simple and common way to make a gift. Donations of cash are deductible if you itemize in the year of contribution. 2. Gift in your will. Give NSDAR a percentage of your estate. Or, leave a gift of money or a particular piece of property to NSDAR. 3. Securities. Give stocks that have increased greatly in value, particularly those producing a low yield. If you have owned them longer than one year, you will pay no capital gains tax on the transaction, and you can deduct the full fair market value. 4. Bank accounts and CDs. Name NSDAR as the "payable-on-death beneficiary" of your bank accounts or on certificates of deposit. You own the assets for your lifetime and have them available for your use. After your lifetime, the assets pass directly to us without going through probate. 5. Retirement plan assets. Your most efficient estate planning option may be leaving all or a portion of your retirement plan to NSDAR because these assets are subject to income taxes when distributed to your heirs. Federal income taxes alone may corrode up to 37 percent of the amount they receive. At the same time, you can pass more tax- favored assets to your family. 6. Charitable gift annuity. This is a simple contract between you and NSDAR that pays you a fixed dollar amount for your lifetime. The older you are, the higher your annuity rate.
