A one-time gift or pledge of $5,000 or more for general support or for a specific program makes a significant difference for our families. If you want to make a pledge, we will work with you to structure your pledge in a mutually beneficial way. Email us at [email protected]
Make a simple bequest in your will by naming Corazón as a beneficiary of your retirement account or life insurance policy. Alternatively, by planning the use of other giving vehicles, you can ensure that the steps you take today will help families receive support for years to come.
Gifts of stock can provide a greater tax benefit to you than cash gifts, while having an immediate impact on the lives of families. Gifting stock can save you taxes in two ways: 1) by receiving a charitable deduction and 2) by avoiding a capital gains tax on the gift.

When you initiate your donation, please inform Corazón so that we know to look for your gift in our account and credit it to you in our records for annual tax letters. Unfortunately, Schwab does not notify us when we receive a stock gift, or the name of the donor, as they consider this as confidential information. If you intend for your donation to be for anything other than a general unrestricted donation - you also need to inform us of this at the time of the donation.
Donations of these items are one of the most tax-efficient ways to give if you are able to do so. You receive a tax deduction for the full value of the gift without having to sell it and pay the capital gains tax on the sale of the security. Your broker can assist you in making the gift to Corazón through our Charles Schwab brokerage account.
If you are over 70 and ½ years old and must take RMD from an IRA, you can donate all or a portion of your RMD (up to a limit of $100,000/year or your annual RMD requirement, whichever is less) directly to Corazon as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). You arrange for this donation through your IRA provider. The donation satisfies the requirement for the RMD without counting as income to you. Because your income is reduced by the amount of the QCD, you cannot also deduct it from your taxes, but the reduction in income has the same effect. In addition, there are two additional possible advantages:
- If you have no other significant tax deductions, you can take the standard deduction on your tax return but still have the full advantage of the donation.
- Your MAGI (used to determine your annual Medicare premiums) will be lower by the amount of the QCD, allowing you to pay a lower premium.
