Gifts of stock or bonds that have appreciated in value may be especially attractive to you under the current tax laws. Mutual funds, like gifts of stock, are another way that you can make a larger gift than you might ordinarily be able to give, simply by giving shares of mutual funds you have owned for more than a year.
The total value of the stock upon transfer is tax-deductible.
There is no obligation to pay any capital gains taxes on the appreciation.

Whether you would like to put your donation to work today or benefit us after your lifetime, you can find a charitable plan that lets you provide for your family while also supporting InVision Foundation.
Create a lasting legacy of supporting the hopes, dreams, and visions of the people we support to become reality when you make a gift to InVision Foundation in your will or trust.
Your gift may be a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or the remainder after all other provisions are specified. Below is suggested language to take to your attorney for use in drafting your bequest.
For an unrestricted gift that allows InVision Foundation to determine how to use the funds based on the most pressing needs, use the following language for your will and/or trust:
"I give to InVision Foundation, a non-profit corporation currently located at 12450 Perry Highway, Wexford, PA 15090, or its successor thereto,__________________ [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property]. This gift should be sued for (state purpose) if and so long as InVision Foundation determines that the need exists. If InVision Foundation shall determine at the outset or at a later time that the need does not exist, or no longer exists, or for some reason it is not possible (or prudent) to administer my gift as originally intended, then InVision Foundation may, in its sole and uncontrolled discretion, direct the use of my bequest for a purpose related as closely as possible to that stated above."
Other planned giving options include trusts, IRA charitable rollover, real estate, endowed gifts, and donor advised funds.
Donate to InVision Foundation in the honor or memory of someone special and you will also be contributing to creative and innovative solutions for the people we serve. Your special gift today will remove obstacles in the way of meaningful lives. On behalf of the people we serve, thank you.
A donor advised fund, which is similar to a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to InVision Foundation. You can recommend a grant or recurring grants now to have an immediate impact, or use your fund as a tool for future charitable gifts.
You can also create a lasting legacy by naming InVision Foundation the beneficiary of the entire account or a percentage of the fund. With a percentage, you can create a family legacy of giving by naming your loved ones as your successors to continue recommending grants to InVision Foundation. Contact your fund administrator for a beneficiary form.
Your gift can go even further if your company has a matching gift program. For every donation you send to InVision Foundation, most organizations will match it dollar for dollar (and in some cases, even more)!
Unsure if your employer matches donations? Contact your company's Human Resources department to learn about your options. Requesting matching gifts could be through an online form, payroll deductions, or paper forms. Just fill out your portion, send it to us, and we'll do the rest.
If you or your company have questions about our Matching Gifts program, please contact the InVision Foundation team by phone at 724-933-5100 or via email at email@example.com.
