Appreciated Stock

Your gift of appreciated marketable stocks or mutual fund shares will provide a significant benefit to HaysMed and may offer you important tax benefits.  Consider transferring them to the HaysMed Foundation. You will not incur sales expenses, and you will not generate a taxable capital gain.

If your securities have decreased in value since you acquired them, it may be to your advantage to sell them, report the capital loss deduction, and donate the proceeds.

If you hold highly appreciated but low-yield stocks, consider using them to fund a charitable remainder trust or a charitable gift annuity at the HaysMed Foundation. You can receive a long-term income stream while minimizing your taxable capital gains.

For information on transferring stock or shares of a mutual fund, please contact Jeff Brull at 785-623-2350 or at jeffrey.brull@haysmed.com.

Real Estate

Thinking of selling your home, commercial building, or investment property? Enjoy tax benefits, generate income, and help HaysMed with a gift of real estate.

A concern of real estate owners with property that has significantly appreciated in value is that much of their profit from a sale will be consumed by capital gains taxes. If this describes your situ­ation, you may want to consider making a char­itable gift of your real estate instead of selling it. By giving property to the HaysMed Foundation, you will not have to pay capital gains tax, you may be able to take a substantial income tax deduction, you may choose to receive income for life, and you will have the satisfaction of providing significant support to HaysMed.

Another good way to take advantage of appreciated value of your home or farm is to enter into a life estate agreement with the Foundation. You continue to use the property throughout your lifetime, receive an immediate tax deduction and avoid taxation on gains in addition to reducing possible estate taxes. HaysMed benefits from the ultimate use or sale of the property.

Yet another option is to take advantage of Kansas' transfer on death statute wherein an interest in real estate may be titled in transfer-on-death (TOD) form by recording a deed signed by the record owner of such interest, designating a grantee beneficiary or beneficiaries of the interest. Such deed shall transfer ownership of such interest upon the death of the owner. This is an inexpensive way to make a significant gift of a home, farm or pastureland, or other real property while ensuring you retain full use and ownership during your lifetime.

Personal Property

A gift of personal property is a way to make a difference at HaysMed at little cost. If you donate a work of art, mineral interests or other tangible personal property that can be used or sold by the Foundation, you can take a charitable deduction and reduce future estate taxes.
