Savings Bonds

When you redeem savings bonds, you will owe income tax on the appreciation. So will the person who inherits them. You can eliminate the income tax on bonds you plan to redeem by donating them to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Because the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is tax-exempt, 100 percent of your gift of savings bonds will go to supporting our shared mission.

Benefits:

  • Reduce your income tax with a current gift.
  • Reduce income tax and possibly estate taxes for your loved ones, while create your lasting legacy with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Retirement Assets

A gift of your retirement assets, such as an employee retirement plan, IRA, or tax-sheltered annuity, is an excellent way to make a gift. A gift of these assets can shield you or your heirs from taxes while ensuring a brighter future for all those living with cystic fibrosis.
