Tax Efficient Gifts

You can make a valuable impact on Riverside’s innovative and accessible behavioral health and human services through these easy and tax-wise giving options: 

  • Donor-Advised Funds (DAF): Give through your Donor-Advised Fund to maximize your impact on Riverside’s behavioral health and human services. When you deposit funds into your DAF account, you receive the charitable tax deduction immediately without the pressure of selecting a recipient organization right then. Once you contribute assets to the DAF, the sponsoring organization has legal control of the funds. However, you (the donor) hold advisory privileges, so you direct grants to specific charities like Riverside.  
  • Appreciated Securities: Make a gift of stock or securities to support our lifesaving mission and avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation of your stock. Click here for more information.   
  • Individual Retirement Account: Retirement assets in an IRA account are a tax-wise way to make a gift to Riverside. If you are 70-½ or older, you can rollover up to $100,000 per year from your IRA as a charitable gift. Tell your IRA administrator to transfer your gift directly to Riverside from your traditional or Roth IRA account. The gift will not be taxed as income to you. You will not receive an income tax charitable deduction for this gift. 

To discuss your gift, please contact Melissa Kogut, Vice President of Development, at or 781-320-5319.
