planned giving

Join Habitat for Humanity’s Planned Giving community and with a little creativity, your planned gifts can allow generous partners like you to make meaningful gifts you may have never thought possible, helping to build decent and affordable homes for families in need. 

These gifts also often qualify for significant tax deductions. Please consult with your tax accountant for proper guidance.


There are many options for planned Giving!

Securities Gifts

Easily donate your appreciated stocks, bonds and/or mutual funds to help build homes.

Giving a gift of publicly traded stock may provide greater tax benefits than giving cash. You will receive a charitable deduction for the fair market value of the stock and you incur no capital gains tax subject to IRS deduction limits.


Donor-Advised Fund Gifts

Provide a flexible, tax-savvy method of giving that helps to build the quality of life, health and prosperity in our community through the production and preservation of homeownership.

An increasingly popular charitable vehicle, donor-advised funds can be established with a number of entities, including community foundations and financial services companies.


Wills and Family Trusts Gifts

A gift to Habitat is a wonderful way to create a memorial that lives on and helps change lives for local families for years to come.

Simply ask your attorney to include a bequest to Habitat for Humanity of Butte County in your will.

IRA Gifts

If you are at least 70½ years old, you can make a gift of up to $100,000 each year to Habitat for Humanity of Butte County directly from your IRA.

Qualified charitable distributions may be able to reduce your taxes while fulfilling your required minimum distribution.

This charitable transfer excludes the gift from your gross income for Federal Income Tax purposes and can be especially attractive for donors who do not itemize or would like to keep reportable income down to avoid having social security and other income taxed at a higher rate.


Endowment Gifts

There’s a way you can remain a permanent presence in our local community and ensure that your support for our mission lives on for generations to come: Give an endowed gift.

An endowment gift to Habitat for Humanity of Butte County today provides a brighter picture for our future. When you make a donation to our endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.

LIfe Insurance Gifts

Endowments through gifts of life insurance are among the most innovative planned giving vehicles and suit the needs of many different donors.

With life insurance, Habitat for Humanity of Butte County is designated as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, which can be used to create a philanthropic fund upon a donor’s passing, allowing their surviving family to continue their charitable interests.

An existing policy can be transferred and Habitat for Humanity of Butte County can be named as the owner. At the time of transfer, a current deduction equal to the net cash value of the policy can be taken. All future premium payments, when paid, would be a current tax deduction.


Real Estate Gifts

You may decide that the greatest gift you can make is to leave your home or farm to Habitat for Humanity of Butte County.

This kind of gift is ideal for people who intend to continue living in their home or property throughout their lifetime, but still want to make a charitable gift. You can leave this generous gift by signing an agreement with Habitat for Humanity of Butte County about maintaining the property so you can use it throughout your lifetime. You may even receive a tax deduction for your gift.
