Gifts That Make An Impact Now

You can empower TGen to accelerate genomic discoveries toward patient care today, while shaping the future of health care WITH precision medicine.

Here are some ways that you can make a significant impact now.

Recommend a Grant Now From Your Donor Advised Fund

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving account that provides an immediate tax benefit to you, and allows you to grant funds to charities of your choice. A donor advised fund is a great way to manage your giving to TGen and other charities in a simple and efficient way.

IRA Charitable Distribution

You can transfer funds from your IRA directly to the TGen Foundation. This is an effective way to have an immediate impact on groundbreaking research. You may use this gift to satisfy the required minimum distribution from your IRA while reducing your taxable income, even if you don’t itemize. Here’s how it works:

  • You must be 70 ½ years old or older.
  • Your gift must be transferred directly from the IRA account to the TGen Foundation.
  • Your gift is a transfer of funds from your IRA to the TGen Foundation, so it does not create taxable income for you and is not considered a charitable tax deduction.*
  • You may transfer up to a total of $100,000 per year (individual) or $200,000 (married couple).
  • If you are required to take a Required Minimum Distribution from your IRA, your gift can count towards it, but your gift is not limited to your RMD.
    (Note: under the CARES Act, RMDs are suspended for 2020. However, you may still make a qualified charitable distribution.) If you are using a checkbook issued by your IRA administrator to make your gift, please send your gift as early as possible to ensure that it qualifies for a distribution in the current year.

* Due to recent changes in the laws governing retirement plans, please seek advice from your financial advisor regarding the tax implications of your gift, particularly if you plan to continue to contribute to your IRA after age 70 ½. Your gift may not qualify for these tax benefits.

 

Memorial or Tribute Gift

When you make a memorial or tribute gift to the TGen Foundation and honor someone special in your life, you’re expressing your love, admiration and gratitude in a very meaningful way. Your gift will honor your loved one, create a lasting tribute and help save lives.

You can make your gift online with our secure online donation form or by sending a check or money order by mail to:

TGen Foundation

Gifts of Real Estate

You can donate appreciated real estate such as a home, vacation property, undeveloped land, farmland, ranch or commercial property. Real estate gifts are accepted on a case by case basis.

Gifts of Securities

You can use stocks, bonds and mutual funds that have appreciated in value to impact the lives of patients and their families. You may receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value of the stock (up to a maximum of 30% of your adjusted gross income) and avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the value of the stock.

Gifts of Cash

A donation of cash is the most direct way to support TGen’s groundbreaking research. You benefit from a charitable tax credit while impacting the lives of patients and their families. You can make your gift online with our secure online donation form or by sending a check or money order by mail to:

TGen Foundation
