4 Ways to Give


Appreciated Stock

By gifting an appreciated stock that you have owned more than one year, you can avoid long-term capital gains (up to 23.8% depending on your tax bracket) while receiving a deduction for the entire value of the stock gifted.


IRA Charitable Contributions

If you are subject to Required Minimum Distributions from you IRA, but don’t need the money, gifting directly to charity (up to $100,000 per year) can minimize your tax bill and maximize how much you give to charity.


Donor Advised Funds

Take the tax deduction now, give to the charity of your choice later. This is a great strategy for “big” income years – maybe you sold a business, or had a giant bonus and would like to mitigate some of the tax liability.


Legacy Planning

Extend your legacy beyond your lifetime through your estate plan. Continue supporting HBF now and forever through your will, adding a charitable rider to your life insure policy, or other estate planning options. 

Consult your estate planner and tax advisor to determine the best way for you to become an HBF Legacy Circle member.

“As a longtime board member and volunteer, Home Builders Foundation has been an important and meaningful part of my life. My involvement has enabled me to see firsthand the impact HBF makes on the lives of so many. I’m honored to be a Legacy Circle member to ensure that the important work the HBF does in the community continues in the future.”
