Currently, law permits those who are 70½ years of age and older to make a gift of up to $100,000 from a Traditional IRA directly to a qualified charity. This provides tax benefits for both you and the charity. For more details, please consult your financial advisor.
If you choose to transfer appreciated marketable stocks or mutual fund shares directly to us, there may be tax advantages to you. If the securities have decreased in value since you acquired them, it may be more beneficial for you to sell them, report the capital loss deduction and donate the proceeds.
Have you considered remembering Chicago Methodist Senior Services in your will? By including a donation in your will or trust, you can help us continue to provide supportive services for future generations. Contact us to learn more about the benefits of planned giving.
Many employers have Matching Gifts Programs where the company will match the tax-deductible contribution you make. Check with your Human Resources Department for more information on how to enroll your company in the Matching Gift Program.

A number of websites graciously donate a small percentage of each purchase made through their website to Chicago Methodist Senior Services. This is done at no additional cost to you! You’ll pay the price you normally would for your purchase.
Amazon Smile – Amazon Smile, an Amazon.com project, provides the same great selection of products as their main website does, with the bonus of providing a donation to your charity of choice for every qualifying purchase you make through the website – at no extra cost to yourself. Be sure to start your Amazon purchases at smile.amazon.com and select “Chicago Methodist Senior Services” as your favorite charity.
GoodSearch and GoodShop – GoodSearch donates to your favorite charity every time you run a web search through their website. GoodShop, much like AmazonSmile, donates when you make a purchase through one of their affiliate websites. Just be sure to start on GoodShop.com and select the online retailer you’d like to shop at from a link on their website to ensure the donation is made. Select “United Methodist Homes and Services Foundation” as your favorite charity to ensure the GoodSearch and GoodShop websites donate to Chicago Methodist Senior Services.
