Planned Giving

Fonkoze USA (EIN: 52-2022113) accepts a number of different types of planned gifts.

 

  • Bequests: Designate Fonkoze USA as a beneficiary in your will.

 

Leave a legacy of support for the poor—remember Fonkoze in your will. Fonkoze will put your bequest into a special endowment account in your name, which will be used to support Fonkoze’s work for years to come. To include Fonkoze in your will, use the following phrasing: “I bequeath to Fonkoze USA, a non-profit organization incorporated in New York and headquartered in Washington, DC, the sum of $______ (or ___ %) of the remainder of my estate.”

 

  • Designate Fonkoze USA as a beneficiary of a Charitable Trust.
  • Designate Fonkoze USA as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy.
  • Donate real estate to Fonkoze USA by setting up a life estate.
  • Make a charitable distribution from your IRA (70 1/2 years or older). Did you know that you are required by law to make withdrawals from your IRA if you are 70 1/2 years old or older? A charitable distribution from your IRA account qualifies as a withdrawal. Please check with your tax professional for more details.

 

If you have any questions, please email Mabel Valdivia: MValdivia(at)fonkoze.org at Fonkoze USA.

Donor Advised Fund (DAF)

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a type of giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support your favorite charities. An increasingly popular charitable vehicle, DAFs are an excellent way to both simplify your charitable giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals.

 

How does it work?

 

  • Establish your DAF by making an irrevocable, tax-deductible donation to an investment firm such as Fidelity Charitable that sponsors a DAF program
  • Advise the investment allocation of the donated assets (any investment growth is tax-free)
  • Recommend grants be given to Fonkoze USA.

 

What are the main advantages of a donor-advised fund?

 

  • Simplicity: The DAF sponsor handles all record-keeping, disbursements; tax receipts.
  • Flexibility: Timing of your tax deduction can be separate from your charitable decision making.
  • Tax-efficiency: Contributions are tax-deductible and any investment growth in the DAF is tax-free. It is also easy to donate long term appreciated securities, eliminating capital gains taxes and allowing you to support multiple charities from one block of stock.
  • Family legacy: A DAF is a powerful way to build or continue a tradition of family philanthropy.
  • No start-up cost: There is no cost to establish a donor-advised fund. However, there are often minimum initial charitable contributions to establish the DAF (typically $5,000 or more).
  • No transaction fees: Once approved, 100% of your recommended grant goes to your qualified charity of choice.**
  • Privacy if desired: Donors may choose to remain anonymous to the grant recipient.

Invest in the Fonkoze USA Loan Fund

Some of Fonkoze USA’s fundraising activities are available only to Accredited Investors as defined in Rule 501 of the Securities Act of 1933. Please contact Fonkoze USA, or call 202-628-9033 for details.

Give the Gift of Stock

Appreciated securities are perhaps the most cost-effective assets to use in making a gift. When you transfer ownership of a long-term holding to Fonkoze USA, you receive a charitable deduction for the full market value and you incur no capital gains tax.

 

Make a donation of stock to Fonkoze USA (EIN: 52-2022113) by electronic transfer

After reading the instruction sheet, ask your broker or bank to wire the number of shares of stock you wish to donate to:

 

DTC # 0374 to Janney Montgomery Scott LLC

For Benefit of Fonkoze USA

Account Number: 364003889

 

According to IRS regulations, the date of your gift for electronically transferred stock is the date it arrives in Fonkoze USA’s account. For gifts of stock transferred by mail by Irrevocable Stock Power, the date of gift is the date the stock certificate and Irrevocable Stock Power are postmarked. Fonkoze USA will send you a letter acknowledging your gift to use in claiming a charitable deduction for income tax purposes.

 

Make a donation of stock to Fonkoze USA (EIN: 52-2022113) and hold the stock certificate.

 

After looking over the instruction sheet, complete the following steps.

 

  1. Send the certificate(s), unsigned, via Registered Mail to Fonkoze USA or Janney Montgomery Scott LLC.
  2. Fill in and sign the Irrevocable Stock Power form and mail it to Fonkoze USA or Janney Montgomery Scott LLC. DO NOT sign or fill in the back of the certificate to transfer it to Fonkoze USA. This saves the trouble and expense of first transferring the stock to Fonkoze USA on the corporation books and then immediately transferring it again when Fonkoze USA sells it.
  3. Mail the Stock Certificate and Stock Power Form to either:

 

Mabel Valdivia, Executive Director

Fonkoze USA

1900 L Street NW, Suite 304

Washington, DC 20036
