Union Volunteer Emergency Squad can help you set up a way to donate that’s as convenient for you as it is useful to us. We’re a registered 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization and contributions are tax deductible. And the help you give us is returned in the help we give to you and your neighbors.
Pick your gift
Consult with your attorney, tax consultant or financial adviser before making a gift. Cash or appreciated stock: Gifts of cash or appreciated stock may be made by parents, grandparents, other relatives, friends, businesses, foundations and other organizations. A donation of appreciated stock permits the donor to deduct the full market value while avoiding capital gains tax.
Wills and Bequests:
They make a lasting gift, often with considerable tax advantages.
UVES may be named as the beneficiary of insurance policies.
Annuities and Trusts:
Properly structured, they may enable the donor to receive income from their donated assets. These gifts are known as charitable remainder trusts, gift annuities, and pooled income funds. Advantages of such a gift often include avoidance of capital gains tax and an income tax deduction, as well as generating income.
You can donate your property now, and still use it for the rest of your life. Or you may gift property through your estate.
