Distributions from a donor advised fund (DAF) can be made to the Porter-Gaud Foundation. Through a DAF you can make gifts to Porter-Gaud during your lifetime and/or name the school as a beneficiary at the time of your death.
How to Make a Gift Through a Donor Advised Fund
Establish a donor advised fund.
Make annual recommendations on charitable gifts to Porter-Gaud Foundation from your DAF.
Designate Porter-Gaud Foundation as a beneficiary of your DAF at the time of your death.
Donating appreciated securities is an easy and tax effective way to support the Porter-Gaud Foundation.
Gifts of Stock
Giving a gift of stock that has increased in value and you have owned for more than a year may provide you with a larger tax benefit than a gift of cash. You may avoid capital gains tax on any increase in the current value of the stock and your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock.
Please call or direct your financial advisor to call Lisa Ward, J.D. at 843-402-4754 to provide the donor name, name of stock, amount of shares, and benefitting fund if you plan to make a gift to stock to Porter-Gaud Foundation.
