Tax-Smart Ways to Advance the Kingdom

Donor Advised Fund

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a way of giving that provides an immediate tax benefit to you, while providing you with the opportunity to direct funds toward the charity of your choice.


Giving stocks (that you have held for more than one year) directly to a ministry provides a significant opportunity to avoid capital gains tax, receive a deduction at the full-market value of the securities, and simplify your giving. In fact, appreciated stock can be more beneficial than giving cash!


Chances are your cryptocurrency is worth more now than when you bought it. Cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, meaning you don’t owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes.

Qualified Charitable Distribution

If you are 70.5 years old or older, you can give any amount up to $100,000 per year from your IRA directly to an organization without having to pay income taxes on the money. This popular gift option is known as a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) and is commonly called the IRA charitable rollover.
