Other Ways to Give to LCA

LCA accepts donations of artwork, antiques, jewelry, vehicles, or coins. You are entitled to an income tax deduction for the fair market value of the gifts which varies depending on IRS limitations.

It is often more tax-wise to contribut an asset - such as stocks or real estate - that has appreciated considerably (increased in value) than to make a cash donation.

When donating stock, you benefit in two ways: you avoid paying any capital gains tax on the increase in the value of the stock, and you receive an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the stock at the time of the gift. Stock donations are fully deductible up to a maximum of 30% of your adjusted gross income. Please note this only applies to accounts that are not IRAs.

To donate appreciated stock to LCA, provide your broker with the information below. Please notify us of your transfer at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

A residence, vacation home, acreage or vacant lot can provide tax benefits when contributed to LCA. You can avoid capital gains tax and receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the property.

Donor-Advised Funds (DAF)  - investment accounts consisting of cash, securities or appreciated assets - are offered by many financial institutions, including Schwab, Fidelity and Vanguard, to name a few. DAF are a tax-efficient way to manage charitable donations. DAFs allow donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction and then recommend grants from the fund over time.  Simply recommend a gift to LCA through your donor-advised fund by asking your financial advisor to designate a gift to LCA. When you make a gift to LCA through your donor-advised fund, we do not always receive information that identifies you as a donor.
