Ways to Give
donor Advised funds
With the recent change in the standard tax deduction, a donor advised fund may be a more beneficial choice to your Habitat giving. These funds allow you to take an immediate tax deduction, and then make your gift to Habitat all at once or over time. Talk to you financial advisor today.
