Donating securities:
If you are interested in donating securities, please click here. Donating Appreciated Securities to Montpelier, may reduce your income and estate taxes and avoid capital gains taxes entirely. Giving appreciated securities is a great way to make both annual gifts and those special gifts you occassionally want to make.

Gifts from an IRA:
You may make gifts of up to $100,000, if you are 701/2 or older from a regular individual retirement account without first paying income taxes on the IRA. These gifts reduce both income and estate taxes. The extension is retroactive. These gifts are especially good if you have a substantial balance on your IRA and if you already make substantial charitable gifts because the income tax deduction percentage limitations on most charitable gifts do not apply.
