Other Ways to Give to Daystar
Many companies will match donations given by their employees to a non-profit organization. Check with your employer to see if they have an Employee Giving Campaign. If they do not, often times you can notify your supervisor and the company will provide Daystar with a form to fill out to start the process.
GIFTS OF PROPERTY
Daystar welcomes such donations as: buildings, land, vehicles, aircraft, jewelry, vacation homes, boats, Oil & Gas leases, motorcycles, stocks & bonds, rental property and art work.
SELLING A BUSINESS
Selling a business can lead to significant income and Capital gains taxes. With your attorney’s help, you can often use a charitable trust offered through Daystar Television Network to minimize or eliminate these taxes
GIFTS OF REAL ESTATE
A gift of real estate can provide considerable savings in capital gains taxes due upon the sale of appreciated property. At the same time, you receive a charitable deduction for the full market value of the property as determined by appraisal. Gifts of appreciated real estate are fully deductible up to a maximum of 30% of your adjusted gross income. The unused portion of your donation can usually be carried forward and deducted over a maximum of five subsequent years with the same 30% maximum each year, subject to certain limitations.
GIFTS OF APPRECIATED SECURITIES
A gift of appreciated publicly traded securities can bring you tax savings by offering two significant advantages.
LIFE INSURANCE GIFTS
The contribution of an existing or new life insurance policy can provide a significant gift in a manner which can be especially attractive for younger donors. By designating Daystar as both the owner and beneficiary of a life insurance policy, your premiums may be tax deductible.
How does it work? Simply purchase a life insurance policy and name the charity as your beneficiary. For example, let’s say you have a $200,000 policy. You can leave $150,000 to your family and $50,000 to your favorite charity such as Daystar.
If you donate a term life policy to a charity, you can deduct the cost of the premiums from your taxes. If you donate a whole life policy, you can deduct the cash value of the policy as well as the cost of the premiums. In both cases the charity gets the policy proceeds.
OIL, GAS, MINERAL LEASE
Own an oil, gas or mineral lease, or surface rights? Why not donate it to Daystar and receive some healthy tax advantages, so we can convert your donation to help those less fortunate around the world?
