Gifts of Stock or Securities
Holston Home for Children welcomes gifts of stock or securities, which can be particularly advantageous to the donor. Your broker should transfer your stock gift electronically to the Holston Home account at Charles Schwab: Holston United Methodist Home for Children, Inc., Account Number 4352-1499. Please notify or have your broker contact our Vice President of Development, Seth Taylor, at (423) 787-8725 or send us an email when you have initiated an electronic transfer donation of stock or with any questions.
Would you like to positively impact children at Holston Home and enjoy tax and income benefits at the same time? If you are age 70 ½ or older, you can roll over up to $100,000 from your IRA to Holston Home without paying federal income tax and the gift qualifies for your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). Please contact your IRA custodian to find out how to make a charitable transfer to Holston Home. If you have not yet turned 70 ½ you can still begin making plans about how to take advantage of this approach in the future to benefit the children!
Many companies will match employee gifts. You may be able to double or triple the size of your gift by submitting the appropriate matching gift form (available from your employer) along with your contribution. Please contact your company’s Human Resources Department to learn if you are eligible for matching gifts. Some companies also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
Planned Gifts and Bequests
Estate planned gifts can be made in a variety of forms. To learn more about giving to Holston Home through estate planning or bequests, please visit our Estate Planning page.
Gifts of real estate, art, jewelry or other forms of personal property can be willed to Holston Home. The donor can set up any preferred personal provisions. One such arrangement might be a Retained Life Estate by which the donor deed’s his/her home to Holston Home, while retaining the right to live in it for the rest of his/her lifetime.
Please note that all gifts of interests in personal property must be thoroughly reviewed by the Holston Home Board of Trustees before acceptance of the gift.
