Donate Appreciated Securities

When you donate appreciated securities to the Alzheimer’s Association, you receive two tax breaks. First, you may be able to deduct these gifts as charitable donations. Moreover, you can also avoid capital gains tax on the transfer.  When giving securities, be sure to consult with your financial advisor and/or attorney.

A gift of appreciated securities can be made directly to the Alzheimer’s Association, Greater New Jersey Chapter.  You may be able to deduct the fair market value of the securities without paying federal income tax on the appreciated value.  If you sell the securities and donate the proceeds, you will have to pay the capital gains tax, thus decreasing the amount of your gift.   Gifts of stock may be securely and conveniently transferred electronically to the Greater New Jersey Chapter.  Please call Kenneth Zaentz, CFRE, Vice President of Development at 609.275.1180, so we can inform our broker that a transfer will be made. Then, contact your broker to initiate the gift of securities to the Alzheimer's Association, Greater New Jersey Chapter.  Your broker will need the following information which we can provide: Account Name; Account Number and DTC Number.

Certificates You Hold

If you hold the actual stock certificates, please contact Kenneth Zaentz, CFRE, at 609.275.1180.

Mutual Funds

Contact the customer service department at your company to secure the forms needed, and then call Kenneth Zaentz, CFRE, at 609.275.1180, to discuss your intent.  Please allow at least one month for the transfer.  Mutual fund transfers may take longer, as each mutual fund company has its own requirements for making charitable contributions.

More Information

For more information about gifts and securities, please call Kenneth Zaentz, CFRE, Vice President of Development at  609.275.1180 or e-mail njdevelopment@alz.org .

For more information, please call Kenneth Zaentz, CFRE, Vice President of Development at 609.275.1180 or e-mail: njdevelopment@alz.org.

Bequests and Other Estate Gifts

There are many ways to achieve your long-term financial goals while also leaving a legacy to the Alzheimer’s Association, Greater New Jersey Chapter. The Alzheimer’s Association offers you a variety of planned giving arrangements. Bequests and other types of estate gifts can make a long lasting contribution to the important work of the Alzheimer’s Association, Greater New Jersey Chapter.  In addition, these gifts can provide important tax benefits.  Donors should work with their attorneys and financial professionals to determine the type of gift that is most appropriate for their own circumstances. Please notify the Association of your intent to make a planned gift, so that we may provide any help you need as well as thank and recognize you appropriately. For more information about any of these planned giving options, please call Kenneth Zaentz, CFRE, Vice President of Development at 609.275.1180 or e-mail: njdevelopment@alz.org

Bequests

By remembering the Alzheimer's Association, Greater New Jersey Chapter in your will, you can have a significant impact on improving the quality of care for all those affected by Alzheimer's disease. Your bequest may have estate tax planning benefits as well. Here is sample bequest information you can take to your attorney:

I,  [your name]  [address, city, state, zip], give, devise and bequeath to the Alzheimer’s Association Greater New Jersey Chapter, with offices located at 400 Morris Avenue, Suite 251, Denville, New Jersey 07834 [insert written amount of gift, percentage of estate, or residuary of estate, or description of property] for its unrestricted use and purpose.

Gifts of Retirement Plans

These days many companies offer qualified retirement plans that allow employees to defer paying taxes on a portion of their income until the assets are withdrawn. Designating the Alzheimer's Association as the beneficiary of a retirement plan allows you to pass on those dollars tax free, instead of leaving a tax burden to your heirs or estate. Examples of plans to consider include 401(k), 403(b), Keoghs, and traditional Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs).

Life insurance

A life insurance policy can provide a substantial contribution to the Alzheimer’s Association, Greater New Jersey Chapter and present tax advantages in estate planning.  The policy can be either a new one or a paid–up policy that is no longer needed for its original purpose.  The most direct way to make this type of gift is to name the Chapter as both the owner and the beneficiary of the life insurance policy.

Charitable Gift Annuity

A Charitable Gift Annuity is a simple contract between you and the Alzheimer’s Association.  In exchange for your irrevocable gift of cash or securities, the Alzheimer’s Association agrees to pay a fixed sum each year for the life of one or two annuitants.  The rate of return is determined by your age.  Charitable Gift Annuities offer a tax deduction at the time of the initial gift.  In addition, a portion of the lifetime payments made to the annuitant may be tax free.

Charitable Trusts

Charitable Trusts provide you with the opportunity to make a considerable donation to the Alzheimer’s Association, Greater New Jersey Chapter.  A Charitable Remainder Trust pays a lifetime income to you or a loved one. At the beneficiary’s death, the Greater New Jersey Chapter receives the remaining principle.  A Charitable Lead Trust provides the Greater New Jersey Chapter with income for a designated period of time and then your beneficiaries receive the remainder.  Charitable Trusts offer significant tax benefits for you and your family.
