Gifts of Cash may be taken as charitable deductions for tax purposes. Large gifts may need to be deducted over more than one year under IRS rules.

Gifts of Securities can yield an enhanced tax benefit; the full market value of the securities on the date of the gift may be used for income tax deduction purposes, and gifts allow the donor to avoid potential capital gains taxes that would be imposed if the securities were simply sold.
