Planned giving and estate gifts provide long-term support and flexibility to meet the emerging issues facing our community well into the future. And they leave a legacy of continued impact and influence that will benefit LGBT Mainers for many generations to come. These gifts can include donations of cash, appreciated securities or stock, real estate, artwork, partnership interests, personal property, life insurance, or a retirement plan.

Gifts of Stock
Your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock to OUT Maine. If you have owned the stock for more than a year, and if it has appreciated in value, you may receive greater tax benefits than making a contribution in cash. In most cases, your charitable income tax deduction will be equal to the fair market value of the stock. You may also avoid paying capital gains tax on any appreciation in value over the original value of the stock. Please consult your broker and tax professional for information specific to your portfolio and tax status.
You can even support OUT Maine while shopping on Amazon.com! Amazon Smile donates .5% of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization at no additional cost to you. Click HERE to link your Amazon.com account to OUT Maine.
