Tax Smart Ways to Give

When you give to Nashville Christian School, you make an impact on the future.  Here are two additional ways you can give that can impact your taxes.

IRA Rollover

A gift with your IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD - your IRA rollover) is a tax-smart way to make an end-of-year gift to NCS if you are taking the standard deduction instead of itemizing your income tax charitable deductions.

How it works:

  • You must be at least 70½ years of age at the time of the gift and the total distribution cannot exceed $100,000.
  • For those who are 72 or older, a QCD counts toward satisfying the required minimum distribution from the IRA.
  • The transfer must go directly from the IRA administrator to NCS.
  • Your IRA administrator can help you make a QCD from your IRA.


Stock Donations

Did you know that when you donate stock, you avoid the tax on the gain while deducting 100% of the value of the contribution?  With the market at an all-time high, it's the perfect time to lock in two to three times the tax savings vs. donating cash. It's a win-win for you and NCS.  

Nashville Christian School has partnered with to enable our supporters to make stock donations in 10 minutes or less. The NCS DonateStock page enables you to donate stock from your brokerage directly to our account through a secure portal, making the gifting process fast, safe, and easy.
