Types of Planned Giving

Wire or Stock Transer: If you own stock, it is often more tax-wise to contribute stock rather than cash. This is because a gift of appreciated stock generally offers two-fold tax savings. First, you avoid paying any capital gains tax on the increase in value of the stock. Second, you receive an income tax deduction for the full fair-market value of the stock. Please contact a TAPS representative at for transfer instructions.

Bequests: TAPS can be named as a beneficiary in your will in a number of ways. For example, an outright gift, either a designated dollar amount or percentage of your estate, could be specified. You can also add TAPS to your will through an amendment, so your entire will does not have to be redrafted. Please contact a TAPS representative at for more information.

Other: Other planned gifts are accepted when suitable for both the organization and the donor. Please contact TAPS to learn more.

Tax-deductible donations can also be made online to TAPS. If you prefer to mail your donation, please send a check or money order made payable to: TAPS, 3033 Wilson Boulevard, Third Floor, Arlington, VA 22201.
