Join the breast cancer movement and meet your financial goals at the same time by making planned gifts to the National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund (NBCC). There are several planned giving options such as stock gifts, real estate and estate planning.
Giving long term appreciated stock offers you a two-fold tax saving. You avoid paying any capital gains tax on the increase in value of your stock. In addition, you receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift.
Demonstrate your continued commitment to ending breast cancer and establish a lasting legacy with the Coalition. By designating NBCC in your estate plans, you establish a far-reaching commitment. You also can designate NBCC as a beneficiary of your life insurance or retirement account policy.
You also may choose to provide a gift through your estate by naming NBCC as a beneficiary in your will. We have been humbled and inspired by our supporters who have decided to leave a legacy of hope for others impacted by this disease. It is one of the most impactful ways of memorializing loved ones while continuing to renew our advocacy work for years to come. You and your family also may choose to be recognized on the Face of Breast Cancer® online exhibitions, providing the faces and stories of inspiration and a call to action for others to follow.
