Ways to Give


Gift of Securities

Making a gift of securities, such as shares, stocks, and bonds, is an easy way to maximize your impact and save big on your taxes. By donating appreciated securities directly to TIFF rather than selling them, you avoid the capital gains tax that you would otherwise have to pay.

Planned and Legacy Giving

A gift to TIFF in your will is an investment in the future of film and the culture of our great city. Your legacy gift will help transform the way people see the world through film for generations to come, and provide you with immediate or deferred tax benefits, customized to suit your personal goals.

Contact us to learn more or to assist you or your professional advisor on a confidential basis.
