Include Ohr HaTorah in your annual charitable giving by recommending a grant! We accept all donor advised funds including Fidelity, Charles Schwab, Vanguard, Atlanta Jewish Foundation, and many more! The AJF provides a great FAQ on their website here.

A donor-advised fund (DAF) acts as your personal charitable fund from which you can make charitable distributions to the non-profit organizations of your choice. Contributions to DAFs are tax-deductible at the time made, but donors can defer deciding which specific organizations to support with these funds to a later date.

DONATE APPRECIATED SECURITIES

Support your Congregation and make a bigger impact by donating long-term appreciated securities, including stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, directly to Ohr HaTorah. Compared with donating cash or selling your appreciated securities and contributing the after-tax proceeds, you may be able to automatically increase your gift and your tax deduction.  

Example: Samuel and Adina want to donate $50,000 to Ohr HaTorah. After comparing the options for donating cash versus appreciated securities, they learned they will benefit a tax savings of $10,710 by gifting appreciated securities.  

  Selling Securities and Donating the Proceeds  Donating Appreciated Securities

1Total cost basis of shares is the amount of money you have invested in the shares of a particular fund or individual security. It represents the basic dollar amount that, when compared to the price at which you sell your shares, tells you how much of a capital gain or loss you have realized.  
2Amount of the proposed donation is the fair market value of the appreciated securities held more than one year that you are considering donating. 
3This assumes all realized gains are subject to the maximum federal long-term capital gains tax rate of 20% and the Medicare surtax of 3.8%. This does not take into account state or local taxes, if any.
