Appreciated Securities*

Forest Home accepts gifts of publicly traded securities including stocks, bonds and mutual funds.  If you have held an appreciated security for more than one year, you may find that your contribution will provide a two-fold tax benefit – an income-tax deduction for the full market value and avoid capital gains tax that would have been due on sale.

If you would like to contribute securities, please contact the Forest Home Development Office for our brokerage account information.

Phone: 909.389.4370

For any other questions, please contact the Forest Home Foundation (See ‘Contact Us’ below).

Depreciated Stocks and Securities*

Sell securities that have lost value and contribute the cash proceeds. Reduce capital gains taxes with a capital loss and receive a tax deduction for the charitable gift. If capital losses exceed capital gains, receive an income tax deduction up to $3,000 ($1,500 if married and filing separately). Any unused capital loss deduction can be carried over into future years.

Real Estate*

Donate residential, commercial or undeveloped real estate and provide support for Forest Home while saving on taxes and reducing responsibilities associated with property ownership.

Business Interests*

You can give shares of closely held business stock. The Forest Home Foundation may hold your shares and collect dividends or offer the stock back to your company for redemption or repurchase. You receive an immediate tax deduction for the appraised value of your shares (net of other liabilities that may pertain to it) and pay no capital gains tax on any appreciation. You may be able to use a business interest to create a life income arrangement.

Retirement Plan Gifts*

Name Forest Home as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401k and other qualified plan through this tax-efficient gift.

Life Insurance*

Name Forest Home as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy and save on estate taxes. Life insurance policies may also be given outright.

Charitable Gift Annuities*

Support Forest Home while providing fixed income for life—for yourself or up to two beneficiaries. A Charitable Gift Annuity may also provide significant tax benefits.

Charitable Remainder Unitrust*

Meet multiple goals with this flexible life-income gift. A Charitable Remainder Unitrust may provide a hedge against inflation.
