Other Ways to Give

Leave a Gift in Your Will

A will is a key part of estate planning so your assets are distributed according to your wishes, values, and beliefs.

Benefits to leaving a gift (bequest) in your will:

  • You have the use of your assets during your lifetime.
  • A bequest is a tax-effective way to leave a gift as it reduces your final estate taxes.
  • You may change your will at any time.

If you already have a will, ask your legal advisor about the simple process of including North Shore Community Resources in your will.

Leave a Gift of Stock

Donating appreciated securities is simple, cost-effective and the most tax-efficient way to make a charitable gift today or through your estate. Securities are easy to transfer.

Benefits to donating appreciated securities:

  • By donating stock directly to North Shore Community Resources without cashing it in, you eliminate your capital gains tax bill. You can donate prescribed bonds, mutual funds, exchange traded funds (ETFs), shares, warrants, bills and futures that are listed on the stock exchange.
  • You will receive a tax receipt for the fair market value of the stock on the day of the transfer to NSCR’s account, which will help offset your income taxes.

If you have any questions, please contact us for more information.
