Creative Charitable Giving Tools

Planned Giving, Donor-Advised Funds,
and Stock Donations

Make a planned gift to help children now and into the future
through your estate plan

Through a planned gift, you can help ensure that Kesem will continue to provide free, life-changing programs to children impacted by a parent’s cancer for decades to come.

There are many ways to make a planned gift, and these types of charitable gifts (wills, trusts, annuities, life insurance policies and other retirement assets) often come with tax benefits for you as well. Be sure to discuss any planned gifts with your family, and work with your estate planner, financial advisor or accountant to choose the option that works best for you.

Streamline your giving with a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF)

A donor-advised fund (DAF) provides donors with a centralized charitable giving vehicle. It allows philanthropically inclined individuals, families and corporations to make an irrevocable charitable gift to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program and take an immediate tax deduction.

Giving to Kesem through your DAF is simple, flexible and efficient. Giving also ensures our programs are delivered to children across the country at no cost. talk with your financial planner to see if establishing a DAF is right for you.

Put Stock in Something That Matters

Did you know that when you donate stock, you avoid the tax on the gain while deducting 100% of the value of the contribution? When you give stock, you may earn 2-3 times the tax savings versus donating cash. It’s a win-win for you and us. And now it’s fast, safe and easy to do.

Kesem has partnered with DonateStock.com to enable our supporters to make stock donations in 10 minutes or less. Our DonateStock page enables you to donate stock from your brokerage directly to our account through a secure portal, making the gifting process fast, safe and easy.

So remember, charitable giving doesn’t always mean cash. By giving stock, your support will have even greater impact—without denting your pocketbook. Give smart and save more by putting stock in something that matters.
