**************************************

Cash -- Gifts of cash have an immediate impact on the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson's programs and services. They also provide direct income tax benefits for the donor in the form of a charitable deduction equal to the value of the gift.


Appreciated Securities -- Donating long-term appreciated assets to the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson allows you to avoid capital gains tax and to claim a charitable income tax deduction based on the full, fair-market value of your gift.


Real Estate & Assets -- Contributions of appreciated gifts of property, real estate and art objects may be used to make a charitable gift. Gifts of property held longer than 12 months can be deducted at their full, fair-market value and may also alleviate or eliminate capital gains tax liability.


Life Insurance Policy -- A donor may designate the Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson as the beneficiary of either an existing life insurance policy or a new policy purchased for this purpose. By doing this, you may make an ultimate gift that is significantly larger than your out-of-pocket cost.


Matching Gifts -- You or your spouse may work for a company that will match your contribution to the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center, giving you the opportunity to double, or even triple, your gift. It's a great way to maximize the impact of your contribution.


*****************************


All gifts benefit the Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson and are tax-deductible to the full extent specified by the law.
