Other Creative Ways to Help the Cause

Planned Giving

You can choose to make a special ‘planned gift’ during your lifetime or through your estate in support of entire projects that will enable us to help even more communities. A planned gift refers to charitable gifts that require some planning before they are made. These gift vehicles can provide valuable tax benefits and/or income for life. Whether you choose to name Global Paint for Charity as a beneficiary or create annuities or trusts, your generosity will continue to make a difference, change lives and transform communities for years to come.

Planned Gifts

The most common gift is made by an outright gift of cash; however, there are other ways to make a charitable gift:

A gift using appreciated securities is an excellent way to maximize a charitable contribution. You may take a tax deduction for the stock’s market value even though the cost basis may be much less. In making a stock gift to Global Paint for Charity, you also avoid capital gains tax if you have owned the securities for more than one year.

The most popular way of making a stock gift is by electronic transfer of the securities. Ask your broker to notify us by telephone, fax or letter that a gift is being electronically transferred into our account. Or, you may call us toll free at 855-853-7772. This will help us identify you as the donor and provide you with a receipt for tax purposes. Through careful planning, you can provide a meaningful charitable gift and at the same time enhance your future financial well-being.

Should you sell the stock and give Global Paint for Charity the proceeds, you will not avoid capital gains on appreciated securities. However, you may benefit from a capital gains loss if the stock has decreased in price.

For more information about how to properly record your stock donations, please contact us at or call us today at (855) 853-7772.
