There are many ways to support Massachusetts General Hospital and the programs and departments that are most important to you. Below are a few of the most popular options for planning a gift to Mass General:
Stocks and Bonds
Giving appreciated stock that you’ve owned for more than one year is one of the most tax-advantaged ways to make a charitable gift. With careful planning, you can reduce your capital gains tax while supporting Massachusetts General Hospital.
IRA Charitable Rollover
Here is a tax-smart way to make an impact for Mass General using your qualified retirement plan. The IRA charitable rollover (also called the qualified charitable distribution, or QCD) is a great way to make a tax-free gift to Mass General and satisfy your required minimum distribution.
Life insurance is a valuable asset for making a charitable gift. You can make a gift of a life insurance policy without diminishing other investments or assets earmarked for family members.
A gift of real estate allows you to preserve your cash assets, receive tax and income advantages, and make a significant charitable gift to Mass General.
A donor-advised fund (DAF) can provide you with immediate tax benefits while making your charitable giving easier for years to come. Might a DAF be right for you? Here’s how it works.
