Publicly Traded Stock / Appreciated Securities

By donating publicly traded stock, bond,s or other securities that are highly appreciated, you can avoid paying capital gains tax on the increase in value, and you  are eligible to deduct the entire fair market value as a charitable contribution. For information about stock transfers please contact Alexis Brown, Vice President of Development, at alexis@parkcitycf.org or 435-731-4303.

Tangible Personal Property

Vehicles, boats, and other appraised assets can be donated and receive the same tax benefits for appreciated property. We will want to discuss insurance, maintenance, and other carrying costs with you.

Real Estate

Personal residences, commercial property, and open space designated land are among the types of appreciated property we can accept.  A qualified appraisal and other terms are required.  Learn more about gifts of real estate »

Retained Life Estate

Transfer the title of a personal residence or farm to the Community Foundation while retaining personal use of the property for a specified term of years.

Bargain Sale

Sell property to the Community Foundation for an amount less than the property’s current fair market value. The excess of the value over the sales price is your contribution to the Community Foundation.

Transfers from Charitable Entities

If you have a private foundation or other Donor Advised Fund and are concerned with succession planning or don’t have time to manage your foundation, you can transfer those assets to us. 

Retirement Plans

In larger estates, retirement fund assets distributed to family members may be subject to double taxation — first through the donor’s estate tax and then through beneficiaries’ income tax. Individual Retirement Plan (IRA) accounts listing the Community Foundation as the beneficiary generally will pass to your Community Foundation fund free of estate and income taxes. Keogh plans, 401(k), 403(b) and other qualified pension plans are also eligible. If you are 70.5 years of age or older, you can make a qualified charitable distribution from your IRA via several different fund options. 

Life Insurance

Contribute an existing life insurance policy to the Community Foundation or establish a new one with the Community Foundation as beneficiary. By doing do, you may be eligible for an income tax deduction for the policy’s cost basis or cash surrender value (whichever is less), and any subsequent premium payments may qualify for a charitable deduction.  Learn more about gifts of life insurance or retirement plan assets »

Planned Gifts / Estate Planning

Make a simple bequest, a charitable remainder trust, or a charitable lead trust:

  • Simple bequestMake a bequest to the Community Foundation through your will or living trust. You may qualify for an estate tax deduction based on the value of the gift. You can state your bequest as a portion of your estate or as a set amount of cash, securities, or other assets.
  • Charitable remainder trustTransfer assets to a charitable remainder trust to provide an annual specified distribution to one or more beneficiaries for life or a term of years. The remainder interest creates or adds to your fund with the Community Foundation. 
  • Charitable lead trustTransfer assets to a charitable lead trust. The Community Foundation fund receives an income stream for a lifetime or term of years, after which the remaining assets are distributed to you or other beneficiaries.
