Give using tax-friendly options.

The Foundation immediately converts all stock transfers to cash at the time of gift receipt. Your tax deduction is determined at the time the Foundation exercises the stock gift and the value is equal to the difference between the stock value and the option price.

Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs)

Use your IRA to make tax-free gifts that benefit you and our mission

A Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) offers tax-efficient options for individuals aged 70 ½ or older to make gifts directly from Individual Retirement Account (IRA). QCDs can count towards satisfying an individual’s annual Required Minimum Distribution (RMD), which is the minimum an individual must withdraw from their IRA each year once they reach age 73.

Donor Advised Funds (DAFs)

Easily recommend gifts for tax-efficient giving.

A donor-advised fund (DAF) allows individuals to make charitable contributions and receive an immediate tax deduction.

DAFs can be established at many financial institutions or community foundations. Log in to your donor-advised fund account or contact your fund administrator to submit a request to:

Pierce County Library Foundation

Tax ID: 51-0180293

If you choose to support our organization with a DAF gift, please contact us so that we can properly acknowledge you and ensure your gift is put to use as you intend.

You can choose to make your DAF gift with Visit the Donor Advised Funds and Digital Currency page to learn more.

Real Estate

Gifts of real estate often include appreciated properties such as a home, vacation property, undeveloped land or commercial properties.

When making a gift of real estate, a donor can often donate the property while using it throughout their lifetime, while reducing estate tax liability.

Contact us to let us know about your interest in donating real estate.
