Here are some ways to give to Centerstone to support the service or research that has touched you or your loved ones.

In-kind Donations

We can help determine how your gift can be used best and where to make your donation.

When purchasing from Amazon, simply start your shopping at AmazonSmile. When you designate Centerstone as your charitable recipient, .05% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases will be donated to Centerstone.

Gifts of Securities or Real Estate

Gifts of appreciated securities, such as stock, bonds or real estate that you have owned for at least a year, provide a double tax benefit. You receive an income tax charitable deduction for the value of the property and avoid capital gains tax that would have been owed had you sold the property. Gifts of real estate are subject to inspection and approval prior to acceptance. For questions, or to initiate a stock gift, please email the Foundation or call (877) 277-9820.

IRA Charitable Rollover

Legislation signed in 2015 permanently extended the popular gift option known as the IRA Charitable Rollover—a qualified charitable distribution from an IRA. This is good news for IRA owners age 70½ and over who want to support Centerstone, because you can use your IRA required minimum distribution (RMD) to make a meaningful gift. It’s easy to do:
  • Instruct your IRA custodian to make a distribution directly to the Centerstone Foundation.
  • Although there is no tax deduction, the distribution is excluded from your income for federal tax purposes—no tax is due!
  • Up to $100,000 of your gift qualifies for this favorable tax treatment.
  • Your gift makes an immediate impact.
For more information about planning and completing an IRA Rollover gift, you may indicate your interest on this form or email the Centerstone Foundation directly or call (877) 277-9820.

Planned gifts can maximize the impact of your gift, minimize your tax obligations and meet your individual needs. Centerstone is prepared to work with you directly or in partnership with your financial advisor to help you fulfill your philanthropic goals.
