Outright Gifts – When you make an outright gift to New York Nine Baseball, your contribution can be put to work immediately by providing funding for current programs. An outright gift may be composed of almost any asset of value:
Cash Gifts – The simplest and easiest gifts you can make can be made via credit card, debit card, cash, personal checks, cashier’s checks, or money orders made payable to New York Nine.
Stocks, Bonds or Securities Gift – Appreciated stocks, bonds, or securities can provide considerable tax advantages when transferred to New York Nine before they are sold. If you have held your securities for more than one year, you may find that your gift will provide a twofold tax benefit, creating an income-tax deduction and helping avoid the capital-gains tax that would have been due on their sale. You also may make a gift of mutual funds, non-marketable stock, or closely held stock.
Real Estate Gift – These gifts include but are not limited to personal residences, second homes, income property, and vacant land. These offer a wide variety of tax and other benefits. Most people give their entire interest away, but it is also possible to give only a portion of the property (an undivided percentage interest) while retaining the rest.
Personal Property Gift – These include rare books, works of art, valuable collectibles, and tangible items of demonstrable value — in some cases may enable you to make a significant gift to support New York Nine Baseball with outstanding tax benefits to you.
Matching Gift Programs – An easy way to double or even triple your donation to New York Nine is to find out if your company has a matching-gift program. Such programs typically match all or a percentage of employee contributions to charitable organizations, making the employer a partner in employees’ personal philanthropy. Simply obtain a matching-gift form from your employer’s personnel office, fill it out, and provide it to New York Nine with your contribution.
