Donate Stocks & Mutual Funds
The gift of an asset, often common stock or mutual fund shares, is a valuable way to make a contribution to Boys & Girls Clubs of Acadiana and potentially receive tax benefits based on the value of the asset(s). Contact Rhyan Wheeler at 337-268-9555 for more information.
Charitable IRA Rollover
If you are 70-1/2 or older, you can transfer up to $100,000 each year directly from your IRA to charity and it is not recognized as income to you. Talk to your financial advisor about making a contribution.
Donor Advised Funds
A donor-advised fund is a little like a personal charitable savings account. You can create an account and make contributions of cash, stock, or other assets like real estate or artwork and can take an immediate tax deduction for the gift. You can create a Donor Advised Fund at Community Foundation of Acadiana.
For corporations, the CARES Act has increased the cap on deductibility of donations up to 25% on gross income of the corporation. For food donations, the corporate cap has also been increased from 15% to 25%. This allows corporations to make an even bigger impact through charitable giving.
COVID-19 Update: Due to the current pandemic, we are limited in the items we can accept. You are welcome to reach out to see if we can accept your donation. We welcome contributions of materials, goods, and services that help us reduce our costs and continue to provide high-quality programs for youth in Acadiana. We accept computers, tablets, commercial-grade recreation equipment, furniture, art supplies, books, tickets to child-friendly events, school supplies, and pro-bono services. Please note that all donations are subject to review. Contact Rhyan Wheeler at email@example.com to learn more about what we currently accept.
