Tax-Efficient Gifts

  • You can make an impact on Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s groundbreaking research and comprehensive patient care through these easy and tax-efficient giving options:

    • Donor Advised Funds: Give through your donor advised fund to maximize your impact on the fight against cancer. Your fund sponsor handles all record-keeping, disbursements, and tax receipts.
    • Stock or Securities: Make a gift of stock or securities to support Dana-Farber’s lifesaving mission and you can avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation of your stock.
    • Individual Retirement Account (IRA): If you or a family member are 70 ½ or older with an IRA, you can transfer a cancer-fighting gift directly without incurring tax consequences.
    • Life Income Gifts: Earn income for yourself or beneficiaries when you create a Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) or Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT) to benefit Dana-Farber. 

    You can also designate Dana-Farber as a full or partial beneficiary of your retirement, bank, or investment accounts. Simply contact your plan administrator to request a beneficiary designation form.

    Please contact Dana-Farber’s Development Office for more information, or to let us know if you have recently made one of these gifts.
