Stock and Appreciated Assets

Using appreciated stocks to make a gift is often a tax efficient way of helping your favorite charity. By leaving Brantwood Children’s Home appreciated securities, shares in a mutual fund or other types of appreciated property, you can enjoy tax benefits and a charitable income tax deduction. By donating appreciated property instead of cash, you can usually deduct the current fair market value of the property and avoid capital gains tax on appreciation.

Please check with your financial advisor for more information on transferring gifts of stock.


Bequests are the easiest and most common planned gift. With a bequest, you can leave all or part of your estate to Brantwood Children’s Home.

Gifts of Personal Property

Gifts of Life Insurance

You can designate Brantwood Children’s Home as the beneficiary of your life insurance policy established as a gift and enjoy income tax deductions for the gift. You can also name Brantwood Children’s Home as a successor beneficiary in case of the death of the primary beneficiary named in the policy. If you do decide to make a charitable gift using your insurance policy, keep this information in your estate plan file where your executor will be aware of the gift at the time of your death. Many donors choose to use life insurance to make a gift because it allows them to make a gift much larger than they thought possible.
