Planned Giving

You may be looking for a way to make a big difference to help further our mission. If you are 70½ or older, an IRA charitable rollover is a way you can help continue our work and benefit this year.


  • Avoid taxes on transfers of up to $100,000 from your IRA to our organization
  • Satisfy your required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year
  • Reduce your taxable income, even if you do not itemize deductions
  • Make a gift that is not subject to the deduction limits on charitable gifts
  • Help further the work and mission of our organization

How an IRA charitable rollover gift works:

  1. Contact your IRA plan administrator to make a gift from your IRA to us.
  2. Your IRA funds will be directly transferred to our organization to help continue our important work.
  3. Please note that IRA charitable rollover gifts do not qualify for a charitable deduction.

If you have any questions about an IRA charitable rollover gift, please contact our Executive Director, Tracey Lilly. We would be happy to assist you and answer any questions you might have.

A bequest is one of the easiest gifts to make. With the help of an advisor, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift be made to family, friends or Habitat for Humanity of Craven County as part of your estate plan.


  1. You leave a lasting legacy to be remembered
  2. You lessen the burden of taxes on your family
  3. You may receive estate tax savings
A bequest can be made in several ways:
  1. You can gift a specific dollar amount or asset
  2. You can gift a percentage of your estate
  3. You can gift from the balance or residue of your estate
  4. You can make a beneficiary designation of certain assets

If you have any questions about Bequest by Will or Trust, please contact our Executive Director, Tracey Lilly. We would be happy to assist you and answer any questions you might have.

Many donors choose to make stock gifts each year. A charitable gift of stock held for more than 12 months offers a two-fold tax savings:

  • Avoid paying capital-gains tax on the increase in value of your stock
  • Receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift

The fastest and easiest way to make a gift of stock is to have your broker perform an electronic transfer. You can also contact Executive Director, Tracey Lilly.

Finally, when you make a gift of securities, please contact us so we can acknowledge your gift in a timely and efficient manner. For more information, contact Executive Director, Tracey Lilly.
