What can I give?

  • Life Insurance

    Name Central Florida Foundation as owner and beneficiary of your policy or retain ownership and name us as primary or contingent beneficiary.

  • Real Estate

    If held for more than a year, real estate usually provides the same tax benefits as gifts of securities.

  • Appreciated Securities

    We accept both closely held and publicly traded stock. Give appreciated stock or mutual fund shares that you have held for more than one year and avoid capital gains taxes and earn a charitable tax deduction based on the market value. To learn more click here.
