Gifts of stocks, mutual funds, or bonds may be the best way for you to give, as your gift of appreciated stock or mutual funds can be tax deductible at full fair market value at the time of the gift, and there is no capital gains tax due. Please ask your broker to contact us or send the securities with a letter of transmittal to the Connecticut Trust at the address below.
You may have property or tangible goods you would like to donate. Please contact us before making the gift to make sure we can accept it, and to discuss any necessary appraisal, environmental study, or other preliminaries. You might also consider donating a paid insurance policy.
Planned gifts are a wonderful way to make a long-term impact with your contribution. This could include trusts, retirement funds, charitable gift annuities and other estate planning methods. As a tax-exempt organization, the Connecticut Trust can benefit from a variety of trust arrangements and bequests which carry substantial benefits for the donor. Please contact us to discuss these possibilities.
Bequests are lasting gifts to the Connecticut Trust. Please let us know if you have made provision for a gift to the Connecticut Trust in your will.
We look forward to discussing your interests and gift, and urge you to discuss this with your financial advisor in order to accomplish your philanthropic goals while supporting your preservation interests.
Thank you so much for supporting the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation.
Edmund F. Schmidt, Chairman and Helen Higgins, Executive Director
