YEAR-END GIVING 

Opportunities for Tax Savings

Charitable year-end gifts are like giving yourself a present at tax time. In the U.S., the IRS encourages giving to non-profit organizations by offering significant tax advantages to donors. And depending on your situation, gifts of cash, stock, real estate, life insurance, or the establishment of an annuity, may save you money on your income taxes.
