An Example of Mason Philanthropy at Work
When Sarah's father passed away, she knew she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for him. Her father was a longtime resident of Fairfax, and she remembered that during his lifetime he was always praising Mason's growth and the positive impact it was having on the surrounding region.
Sarah decided to make a gift to benefit Mason in her father's name using appreciated securities. Not only will her father's legacy live on at Mason thanks to the gift, but Sarah also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
