Gifts in Kind
Gifts in kind are a kind of charitable giving in which, instead of giving money to buy needed goods and services, the goods and services themselves are given. Gifts in Kind help Sunshine defray operating costs, such as advertising and printing. We also accept gifts such as laptop computers and airline miles. Gift in Kind donations to Sunshine Foundation are tax-deductible according to IRS regulations as we are registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) charity. For information on how to make a Gift in Kind, please contact Sunshine at (215) 396-4770.
Wills & Bequests
A bequest is a gift made through a will or living trust. Sunshine Foundation can be named beneficiary in your wills and living trusts. Bequests may be stated as a percentage of the estate, as the residual of the estate or as a specific dollar amount. Since a will can be changed, no income tax benefits are associated with a bequest. However, the donor's estate is reduced by the amount of the bequest for estate tax purposes. For more information about bequests, please contact Sunshine Foundation at (215) 396-4770.
Your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock by a direct transfer to Sunshine Foundation. Gifts of stock and bonds can be one of the most advantageous ways of giving. Your gift of a publicly traded stock that has appreciated in value and that you have owned for more than one year may provide you with a greater tax benefit than giving cash. Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock and you also avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock. You will save even more by not incurring brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock. For more information call 215-396-4770.
