Outright Giving

A gift of appreciated assets is often a simple way to make a sizeable gift to The Sierra Fund while avoiding capital gain and other taxes.

You can use your asset(s) in one of two ways.

  1. Donate appreciated securities, personal property, real estate or insurance policies outright. This means your gift is transferred immediately from you to The Sierra Fund.
  2. Use your asset to fund a gift that will provide you with a steady stream of income. (see Life-Income Gifts).

Either way, you can designate which forest, river or organization you would like your gift to support.
