Matching Gifts
Corporate matching gifts have great impact and are an easy way to support Inn Dwelling. You can double or even triple your contribution if your employer offers a matching gift program. Please check with your Human Resources Department to find out if your company participates and how it works. 

United Way Contributions
Inn Dwelling welcomes donors to designate United Way contributions by using code #9059.

Donor-Advised Funds

Gifts of Stock or Real Estate
An outright gift of appreciated stock or real estate can provide generous support for Inn Dwelling.
Any type of security and almost any type of real property--a personal residence, farm, vacation home, commercial building, or undeveloped parcel of land--can constitute a gift. 
These gifts are 100% tax deductible in the year of the gift, up to 50% of the giver's adjusted gross income (30% for long-term capital gains property), with a five year carryover for excess deductions.
Gifts of appreciated securities or property can be more beneficial to Inn Dwelling than cash gifts because they bypass recognition of the capital gains, yet permit the donor to consider the full value in computing the deduction.

Please contact Jenn Johnston at with any questions.

Planned Giving
Planned Giving is making a lasting gift that offers you and/or your estate favorable tax treatment.

Will Bequests
One of the easy and frequently used methods to donate is a bequest in your Will. Tax laws favor charitable bequests in Wills and, consequently, provide an excellent way to support Inn Dwelling.
Charitable Remainder Unitrust
A Charitable Remainder Unitrust is a legal agreement between you as the giver and a corporate trustee. In exchange for your transfer of valuable assets to the trust, the trustee agrees to do the following:
each year pay you an amount based on an agreement percentage of the assets value you transferred to the trust, and
upon your death, pay the remaining assets of the trust to the charities you designated. This arrangement gives additional advantages of avoiding capital gains tax on any 'built-in gain' you may have in the stock or other property you transfer to the trust; reducing the eventual value of your estate tax purposes; and of course the satisfaction of knowing that your favorite charities will ultimately benefit from your planned gift. You can establish a charitable remainder unitrust with Inn Dwelling as a beneficiary.

For planned giving to meet your goals and needs, you should consult with your financial advisor or estate planner about how it may fit into your personal situation. The information provided above is intended to be an overview of planned giving.
