The strategy has been around for some time, but after waning during the financial crisis, it's gained popularity again in recent years as the stock market has roared back to life.


As a member of the so-called "1%," it should be  noted that the high tax rate makes stock donations even more attractive.

"For a donor it makes the most sense," he said. "It's an easy, seamless transaction." said William M. Piecuch Jr., Founder and President of AUADD (auadd.org)

Most of the stocks donors donate, are ones that he's owned for quite some time and would be looking to offload anyway.


Warren Buffett is another devotee of donating stocks to charities. His $2 billion gift to the Gates Foundation came in the form of shares of his Berkshire Hathaway company.

The practice usually enables donors to give more money to the charity than they would if they sold the stocks on their own, paid taxes on the gains, and then donated the cash to the organization.

Charities love it: For non-profits, stock donations are a major boon to their coffers. They've even beefed up their promotional materials to educate people about the tactic.

William M. Piecuch, Jr., Founder andPresident of AUADD (auadd.org) said that although stock gifts only make up about 1.25% of total donations, many times they tend to be major gifts worth over $10,000.


For questions about the simplicity of the process, please contact Nicholas Hoeft, Attorney at law that will handle all aspects of the process as well as any legal questions for the Charity, Americans United Against Destructive Driving (AUADD.org)

    Why donate real estate?

Who would want to donate a house to charity?! Donating real estate is actually far more common than you might imagine, and for good reason. You may have inherited a house that you don’t want or invested in a development that is not selling fast enough. Perhaps you’re ready to sell your home but don’t want to pay significant capital gains tax. In many cases, property donation may be the right choice for you. By choosing AUADD, the process to donate real estate is very simple. We accept donations from individuals and corporations. You will receive a tax-deductible receipt for the full appraised value of the donated property while simultaneously removing a large taxable asset from your estate. Enjoy freedom from property maintenance and the hassle of selling a house, and do good for victims of destructive driving crimes (they are not accidents) at the same time!

    ​        RMDs

Required Minimum Distributions

What kind of property can be Donated?

      Rising trend:

  Donating stock to charity


The end of the year is quickly approaching. Uncle Sam will be taxing your retirement proceeds unless the funds are donated to a charitable 501c3 nonprofit organization before December 31, 2016. If you are over 70 ½ and haven’t taken your Required Minimum Distributions (RMD), please read!

RMDs, are mandatory, minimum yearly withdrawals that must be taken starting in the year you turn 70½. You generally have to take RMDs from any retirement account in which you contributed tax-deferred assets or had tax-deferred earnings, including IRAs and most 401(K) and 403(b) plans. The penalty for not taking your RMD is 50% of the amount not taken or of the shortfall if you haven’t taken the full amount but took some distribution. 

The Internal Revenue Code allows those who make a donation to charity to receive an itemized tax deduction in the amount of the contribution. 
In the spirit of giving back this season, please consider donating to Americans United Against Destructive Driving, a nonprofit organization focused on helping victims of destructive driving crimes.
