Stocks and Securities
You invest, international communities improve. It’s that simple. By making a donation in the form of stocks, bonds, mutual funds or other appreciated securities, you are making an investment in the future of children in your community. As a donor, you are entitled to take a charitable deduction for the full fair-market value of appreciated securities held longer than one year, and you usually avoid paying the capital gains tax that would be due if you sold the securities.
Your legacy can have a direct impact on BLI. A planned gift to Building Legacies International ensures the continuation of our landmark mentoring programs and creates your own legacy of support. Also, you might consider giving a % of your estate to BLI.
Help us to challenge other donors with the exciting prospect of multiplying the impact of their gifts. These “challenge gifts” are used to spur giving from the community during a set time period, and usually involve a match up to an amount defined by you.
Donating your life insurance could be a wonderful way to help. By making Building Legacies International the beneficiary of an existing policy, you can leave a significant gift to benefit people in developing countries throughout the world. Explain “cash value” thing here
