Learn which assets are most commonly used to fund a gift.

Stocks & Bonds

Giving appreciated stock that you have owned for more than one year is one of the most tax-advantaged ways to make charitable gifts. With careful planning, you can reduce your capital gains tax while supporting the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation.

Retirement Assets

A gift of your retirement assets, such as an employee retirement plan, IRA, or tax-sheltered annuity, is an excellent way to make a gift. A gift of these assets can shield your heirs from taxes while investing in our community.

Life Insurance

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.

Real Estate

A gift of real estate allows you to preserve your cash assets, receive tax and income advantages, and make a significant charitable gift to AAACF.

Personal Property

A gift of artwork, coins, antiques, or other personal property can be an excellent way to support AAACF.

Leave a Legacy with a Donor-Advised Fund

The donor-advised fund (DAF) is becoming an increasingly popular way to do your charitable giving. Have you considered what happens to your DAF as part of your estate planning?
