MORE WAYS TO GIVE TO RADIO CATSKILL BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR*
RETIREMENT SAVINGS: Many listeners support Radio Catskill by giving through their retirement savings account, including traditional IRAs, and employer-sponsored plans such as 401(k)s, and Roth 401(k)s. Giving through your retirement savings may satisfy your required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year and reduce your taxable income. Please note there is no longer an RMD waiver this year. You can make an RMD directly to Radio Catskill by year-end to avoid the 50% penalty. Simply contact your IRA custodian, employer, or financial advisor and request that an amount be transferred to Radio Catskill.
GIFTS OF STOCK: Did you know you can also give to Radio Catskill by donating stocks or mutual funds you currently own? It’s definitely an option to consider—especially since you’ll avoid having to pay steep capital gains taxes at the end of the year. Whatever size donation you choose to make, you’ll also be able to deduct your gift on your tax return. Gifts of appreciated securities that have been held for longer than one year are exempt from capital gains taxes. Plus, outright gifts entitle the donor to a tax deduction that’s equal to the fair market value of the securities at the time of transfer. To make a current gift of stock, please contact Tim Bruno on 845-482-4141 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
MATCHING GIFTS: Many employers include a matching gift program in their benefits package. It can be as much as a two-for-one dollar match when the employee makes a personal gift to a non-profit organization like Radio Catskill. Just check with your employer. Note: you may need to know our federal tax ID number: 222792167.
Also please note: The USPS is experiencing delays. If you’re planning to mail a check to Radio Catskill, it must be postmarked by December 31 to be counted as a 2021 donation. If you want to ensure we receive your gift in time, please consider giving online at wjffradio.org by December 31.
