MAKE A GIFT OF STOCK
Gifts of appreciated securities (stock) have two tax advantages for the donor. The capital gains tax that would otherwise apply if you sold the shares yourself can be avoided, and you receive a tax deduction for the average market value of the shares on the day they are gifted to VYCC. Once you have initiated the transfer with your broker, please notify Naomi Galimidi at (802) 434-3969 ext. 112. This will ensure the gift is promptly processed.

Consider supporting VYCC through any of the following vehicles:
A will provision allows you to make a substantial contribution to the VYCC without diminishing the assets available to you during your life. Since bequests are deductible from your taxable estate, significant estate tax savings may be possible. Here is some sample language:
Specific Bequest: “I give and bequeath __ (specific amount, item or % of my gross estate) to the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps, a Vermont non-profit organization, located in Richmond, Vermont, for its youth development purposes.”
Residual Bequest: “The rest, residue and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, wherever situated, I give and bequeath to the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps, located in Richmond, Vermont, for its youth development purposes.”
Contingent bequest: “If any of the above-named beneficiaries should predecease me, I hereby bequeath his or her share to the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps, located in Richmond, Vermont, to be used for its general purposes.”
Life insurance and retirement plans
Donate a policy, or name the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps as a beneficiary.
Charitable gift annuity
Vermont Youth Conservation Corps partners with the highly regarded Vermont Community Foundation to offer charitable gift annuities that benefit the VYCC endowment
Charitable remainder trust or charitable lead trust
Please contact us to discuss these gift vehicles.
A residence or other real property may be given as an outright gift, or you may donate a property and retain the right to occupy it for life. You receive a charitable deduction in the year you arrange your gift.
