Other ways to give

If you are interested in exploring giving options, please contact our Executive Director.

Gifts of Stock

Gifts of appreciated securities (stocks, bonds, or mutual funds held for more than one year) are excellent ways to support the Martin House. Such gifts are easy to make and may provide a greater tax benefit than an equivalent gift in cash.

A gift of stock owned for more than one year may entitle you to an income-tax charitable deduction for the full fair-market value of the donated asset. If the stock has appreciated, you also avoid any capital-gains tax on the appreciation.

Transferring Stock: Gifts of stock to the Martin House via DTC should be transferred to M&T Bank Account #AZD765816 and reference DTC#0443 / Pershing, LLC.

In order to promptly and accurately credit a security gift to the appropriate donor, please let us know if a transfer is occurring.

IRA Charitable Rollover Gifts

At age 72, you must begin taking an annual minimum distribution from your IRA. This distribution becomes taxable income for you whether or not you need the additional income. Making a gift to a qualified charitable organization such as the Martin House enables you to reduce your taxable income while also supporting our mission. Gifts of up to $100,000 per person may be made from an IRA each year. Funds must be transferred directly to the Martin House.

Endowment

The Martin House Endowment Fund has been established to be a source of stable, predictable, and growing financial support for the future. This important fund will continue to further our mission to preserve, interpret, promote and sustain an integrated composition of world-class architecture, design, and landscape for future generations.
