’Tis the season for holiday shopping, baking special treats with your family, and listening to carols.
It’s also the time of year when you are making your final financial plans as calendar year 2021 comes to a close.
Many donors who give to charitable organizations are planning their year-end giving priorities in the month of December.
As you revel in the holiday season and the gratitude that this time of year brings, we invite you to consider Knute Nelson Foundation in your charitable giving plans.
Knute Nelson is a qualified 501c3 nonprofit organization, and the Knute Nelson Foundation is equipped to accept a wide variety of charitable gifts. As you consider your year-end giving plans, here is some more information on other types of gifts you may be interested in making.
Have you considered a gift of stock?
The Knute Nelson Foundation is equipped to receive gifts of stock from generous donors like you! We have seen an uptick in the interest of stock donations, and would be happy to discuss further with you how we can create a win-win situation through gifts of stock. Faithful stock donors Chris and Becky Worley have shared the following powerful testimonial with us. Thank you, Chris and Becky!
"Becky and I were inspired to make a gift of appreciated stock to the Knute Nelson Foundation not only because the Foundation provides wonderful services to residents but also because it was so easy. I had some stock from a bonus program at my previous employer which had appreciated over the years and would have been taxed had I sold it. Instead I passed it easily to the Foundation. No tax and a tax deduction on my tax return. It was a win, win. On top of this it helped the Foundation. So a win, win, win."
Have you considered a gift from your IRA?
The Foundation has seen a rise in IRA Required Minimum Distribution gifts over the last several years. If you are over 70 1/2, you can make a charitable gift directly from your IRA to our 501c3 that will further our mission and could provide you with tax advantages. Please contact us for more details.
Have you considered becoming a Sustaining Donor?
The Knute Nelson Foundation offers a Sustaining Donor program that allows you the opportunity to enjoy a convenient, impactful way to support the Foundation with a monthly gift. You can set up a recurring gift here, or feel free to contact the Foundation to learn more.
