A great way to support Portland Japanese Garden, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is through an IRA Distribution or a gift of appreciated stock. Making your contribution this way may lower your tax bill by allowing you to contribute untaxed income before it is included in your earnings for the year. A gift in this manner, compared to contributing cash or after-tax proceeds from selling appreciated securities, may also reduce your adjusted gross income (AGI) leading to tax savings elsewhere on your return.

Should you have questions about this or any other financial giving we suggest that you talk to your financial advisor, accountant, or stock broker to see what options are best for you. Full information for making gifts of stock to Portland Japanese Garden (also known as the Japanese Garden Society of Oregon) is here. The Garden’s Federal Tax ID is 93-0511171.
