With a gift of securities, you can support CST and realize a potential significant benefit for yourself.  Gifts of securities are tax deductible at full market value on the date of the transfer to CST while potentially saving income tax and capital gains tax on the appreciation.  To transfer securities, download and complete our Stock Donation form and follow the instructions.  (Form and Instructions are coming soon).

  • DONATE/PAYMENT WITH DONOR ADVISED FUNDS: 

Contact your Donor Advised Fund Administrator to recommend Congregation Shaarey Tefilla for a contribution.  A Donor Advised Fund is an account where an individual can make a charitable gift and enjoy an immediate tax benefit while retaining advisory privileges to disburse future charitable donations.  Your Donor Advised Fund account balance can potentially grow over time through investment options thus increasing the amount of money available to donate in the future.  To open a tax advantaged Donor Advised Fund with the Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis, contact Josh Lodolo at jlodolo@jfgi.org or click here DonorAdvisedFund2 for more information.

  • DONATE/PAYMENT WITH IRA DISTRIBUTIONS: 

Individuals who are age 70½ or older can make a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) up to $100,000 each year from their IRA directly to CST and avoid paying income taxes on the distribution.  Generally, IRA distributions are treated as taxable income.  Contact your Financial Advisor to initiate a IRA distribution to CST.
