Support Porto Charities
Your generous tax-deductible gift to Porto Charities enables us to partner with our parish schools and high schools in the Diocese of Arlington to offer programs for children and young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
One-time or recurring gifts of cash
Other Ways to Support our Mission:
Appreciated marketable securities
One of the most tax-efficient ways to give is by contributing long-term appreciated, marketable securities. Donating appreciated securities that are held for more than one year may eliminate capital gains and may qualify for a tax deduction equal to the full market value of the securities.
Qualified Charitable Distributions
A Qualified Charitable Distribution is a direct transfer of funds from an IRA to a qualified charitable organization such as Porto Charities. A QCD may satisfy your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) if the transaction meets existing guidelines. The amount of the QCD is not counted in your adjusted gross income which may reduce your tax liability and eliminate surcharges related to Medicaid.
You can name Porto Charities as a full or partial beneficiary of your life insurance policy. The process is not complicated, and you can divide the death benefit among your loved ones and Porto Charities. The percentage of the payout that Porto Charities gets is up to you.
Bequests are gifts that are made as part of a will or trust. Charitable bequests are flexible, easy to update and may offer significant tax savings. A bequest can create a legacy at Porto Charities that supports the cause you care about.
