Other Ways to Give
Want to donate appreciated Stock? The Carousel Center can accept your gift of most appreciated securities, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Your gift will make a huge difference in the life of a child while maximizing potential tax benefits by avoiding paying tax on capital gains. Please contact Laurie Taylor, CFRE, Development Manager, for the DTC# transfer information. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, Phone: 910.254.9898.
IRA or ROTH Contributions – Qualified charitable distributions are still a great way to make contributions if you are 70½ or older. A qualified charitable distribution (“QCD” or “IRA charitable rollover”) allows you to make a tax-free gift of up to $100,000 to the Carousel Center from your IRA if you are 70½ or older. A qualified charitable distribution is a great way to make tax-advantageous contributions, especially if you don’t itemize your deductions. [The CARES Act suspension of the required minimum distribution from most retirement plans for 2020 does not appear to have been extended into 2021.]
You have important priorities for your family and loved ones, and we know that their health and financial well-being come first. You can join The Carousel Center Legacy Society by making a provision for The Carousel Center’s future in your will or estate giving plans. Your gift helps ensure that the Carousel Center will continue to provide healing, promote justice, and foster resilience in children victimized by physical or sexual abuse, and improve our community through education, prevention, and advocacy in Brunswick, New Hanover, and Pender counties.
