Donation of Stocks and Tax-free IRA Distributions

Beth El The Beaches Synagogue welcomes donations of appreciated stock and tax-free IRA distributions, and you may realize additional tax benefits by making your gifts to Beth El this way. Please contact your personal tax advisor for more information on the tax advantages of donating appreciated stock or making a distribution from your IRA.
