How to Give

Not only do you have options for how your gift will be used, you also have options on what to give and how to give. There are gifts that cost you nothing now, gifts that pay you income, and gifts that allow you to decide what happens when.

Gifts from your Will or Trust

Through a provision in your will or trust, you can make a gift in the form of cash, securities, real estate, or personal property.

Beneficiary Gifts

Naming Medical College of Virginia Foundation as the future beneficiary of a retirement plan, life insurance policy, financial account, commercial annuity or donor advised fund is a simple way to accomplish a charitable goal without affecting your current income.

Charitable IRA Rollover

If you're 70 ½ or older, you can make a gift directly from your IRA to MCV Foundation. While there is no charitable deduction for a rollover gift, you avoid the income tax on the donated portion of your required minimum distribution.

Donor Advised Funds

There are two ways to support the MCV Campus with your Donor Advised Fund (DAF). You can make a grant to us at any time from your donor-advised fund, and also designate MCV Foundation as successor beneficiary to receive all or a portion of the balance of your DAF through your fund administrator.

Donating gifts of stock

Gifts of Stock

When you donate appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares instead of cash, you'll receive charitable deductions at full, fair market value while reducing capital gains impact.

Gifts of Real Estate

Like stock, the fair market value of gifts of appreciated assets such as real estate , artwork, and other well curated collections, can be deducted from your income tax today and reduce your estate taxes in the future. In addition, gift of real estate can take many forms some of which may offer significant capital gains tax savings.
