What can I give?

  • Cash

    A popular and simple way to give that provides an immediate tax deduction.

  • 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. Find more info here on gifts of stocks and bonds or mutual funds.

  • IRA Charitable Rollover

    If you’re 72 or older, recognize tax benefits and satisfy your required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year when you give from your IRA to a Family IRA Rollover Fund. Learn more here.

  • Convert a Private Foundation

    Consider converting your private foundation to an advised fund or a supporting organization to simplify the upkeep and make a greater impact. Click here to read more about these options.

  • Bequests and Trusts

    Establish a charitable fund through your will or other giving vehicle because it’s simple, minimizes estate taxes and can be advised by your heirs. Click here for sample language.
