Donating appreciated securities — stocks, bonds, or mutual funds that have grown in value — can be an easy way of making a contribution to MPP, and one which may have tax advantages for you. You might even be able to consider a larger gift than you would have otherwise given — the size you wish you could make!
One way of reducing your tax burden is to transfer appreciated stock to MPP’s brokerage account and/or MPP Foundation’s brokerage account, in lieu of donating cash to these two organizations.
To transfer your stock, or for more information, please send an email or call us at 202-905-2008.
Give through your will with a bequest to MPP
By leaving a bequest to MPP in your will, you can support MPP’s work far into the future. You will retain control of your assets, and your heirs may experience tax benefits from your charitable gift.
In drafting your will or living trust, you can specify your bequest as a fixed dollar amount (specific bequest) or a percentage of your estate (residuary bequest). For example, “I give to the Marijuana Policy Project Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization incorporated in the District of Columbia, the sum of $ (or all or percent of my residuary estate) to be used for its general purposes.”
It is often simpler to express your bequests as a percentage of your estate, because if your estate changes in value, you will not have to update your will as often. Your gift remains proportional to your estate.
To make a bequest, please consult with your attorney to ensure that your intentions are clear and that your will is in compliance with your state’s laws. Then, contact MPP Foundation by phone (202-905-2008) or email to let us know of your planned gift.
To donate over the phone, please contact us at 202-905-2008.
Please send mail-in donations to:
MPP P.O. Box 21824 Washington, D.C. 20009
