" A gift from your IRA, 401k, 403b, pension, or other tax-deferred plan is an excellent way to make a gift. By making a donation to 50 North, you will impact the lives of older adults now and into the future. Please consider making a gift of your unused retirement assets to further 50 North’s mission of enriching lives and supporting independence."

"When you donate appreciated securities to 50 North, you can take a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the security as of the date of your gift. Choosing securities that have the lowest cost basis and the highest capital gain makes the most tax sense. You pay no capital gains tax on your gift, nor does 50 North, because 50 North is a 501(c) 3 tax-exempt organization. Transferring securities from your brokerage account is not complicated. Donating long-term appreciated securities makes tax sense."
