Donor Benefits

Giving has never been so rewarding

Private philanthropy is the foundation of almost every nonprofit organization, including Special Olympics. To preserve the memory of a loved one, to fulfill a moral obligation, to express gratitude for a service well-performed, to demonstrate deep-felt humanitarian concerns -- these are some of the reasons hundreds of thousands of people each year contribute to charitable organizations. Depending on the country, the asset given and the gift arrangement selected, a donor can generally expect to obtain some or all of the following benefits:

  • Fulfill personal philanthropic goals
  • Reduce income tax through a deduction for the gift
  • Avoid capital-gains tax on gifts of long-term appreciated property
  • Retain a stream of payments for life for the donor and for other beneficiaries
  • Eliminate federal estate tax on property passing to charity upon the donor's death
  • Reduce costs and time in estate settlement
