What to Give

All the ways to give what you can.

Gifts of Stocks and Bonds

A gift of your securities, including your stocks or bonds, is an easy way for you to make a gift. By making a gift of your appreciated securities, you can avoid paying capital gains tax that would otherwise be due if you sold these assets.

Gifts of Real Estate

A gift of your real property (such as your home, vacation property, vacant land, farmland or ranch, or commercial property) can make a great gift. If you own appreciated real property, you can avoid paying capital gains tax by making a gift to us.

Gifts of Retirement Assets

A gift of your retirement assets, such as a gift from your IRA, 401k, 403b, pension, or other tax deferred plan, is an excellent way to make a gift. By making a gift of your retirement assets, you will help further our work.

Gifts of Cash

A gift of cash is a simple and easy way for you to make a gift. You will receive a charitable tax deduction that will provide you with savings on this year’s tax return.

Gift of Insurance

A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a gift to us. If your life insurance policy is no longer needed or will no longer benefit your family, consider making a gift and help further our mission.

Non-cash Assets

The Greater New Orleans Foundation can accept an array of non-cash gifts, from closely held stock to personal property (such as art or jewelry).
