Planned Giving & Bequests
A bequest in your will or trust is a caring way to provide for the future of a charitable organization you support. In addition to being an important legacy, a bequest offers generous tax advantages and may help your estate pass tax-free when it’s settled. Besides cash gifts, you may also bequeath stocks and bonds and other property. Please consult with your attorney for details.
Donating appreciated securities allows you to support Swords to Plowshares while minimizing your out of pocket costs through tax savings the donation generates. You may transfer gifts of stock to Swords without paying capital gains tax. You may also receive a charitable deduction for the value of the stock donated. Please consult with your tax advisor for details.

Many large, and some not-so-large, employers have a matching gift program. Qualifying donations are often matched up to a pre-designated limit. What this means, for example, is a $100 donation will be matched with $100 thereby doubling the initial donation. Some employers may even have a double match making your $100 donation worth $300. Still other employers will match volunteer time with cash. Talk to your human resources department for more information and consider participating in the matching gift program. This is an easy way to make your donation go further.
