Way's to Make a Year-End Gift This Christmas Season

December 11, 2018










You can make this time of year extra special by changing the lives of young mothers and their children. Help them start off strong in 2019 and claim your contribution as a deduction on your 2018 taxes by making your year-end-gift to St. Ann's Center by December 31. 

Gifts of Stock - Many friends of St. Ann’s are enhancing their charitable giving while reducing their taxes by directly donating specific shares of appreciated securities to St. Ann's. As a 501c3, we don’t pay capital gains tax on the sale of securities. This makes donating securities to St. Ann’s a popular giving option and helps us continue to provide life-saving services to homeless women and children. 

IRA Roll-Over - If you are 70 ½ or older, you may instruct your IRA custodian to transfer any amount, up to $100,000, directly to St. Ann’s Center. By making a direct charitable distribution from your IRA, you can fulfill all or part of your minimum required distribution without adding to your taxable income.  By donating to St. Ann’s, you will be helping young mothers and children break the cycle of poverty.  Talk to your IRA custodian to find out if this type of contribution is right for you.

For these options, have your broker/advisor contact Beth Fromm, at [email protected] or call 301-559-5500.

Matching Gifts - Many employers will match your charitable gift. You are able to double or even triple your support! Please check with your employer if you would like to send St. Ann's a matching gift. Contact St. Ann’s Development Department at [email protected] or call 301-559-5500 to let us know of your gift.

AmazonSmile - Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. Visit, search for and select St. Ann's Center for Children, Youth, & Families before you start your shopping!
