Please take a moment to review the enclosed NHU Donation Wish List. Listed are just a few ways in which you can ensure that our community members with disabilities are given access to the information, tools and opportunities that will allow them to lead a fully satisfying life.
- Give Gifts of Cash.
Do you wish to increase your income tax deduction to reduce your annual income tax? Donate a cash gift to NHU by December 31, of this calendar year (Your check must be dated and received or postmarked by the deadline) to qualify for an annual charitable income tax deduction. The full amount of your gift qualifies for an annual charitable income tax deduction generally limited up to 50% of your adjusted gross income. To Make a Financial Contribution - Donate Now!
- Give a Memorial Gift.
Do you wish to remember a special individual in your life with a memorial tribute? NHU will send a memorial tribute to the family of the person whose memory has enriched our lives and their name will be added to our NHU Book of Memories. Click on the following link to print a Memorial Tribute Form to send to NHU along with your contribution.
- Give an In-kind Gift
At New Horizons Un-Limited we accept gifts of used computer equipment or adaptive computer equipment or software as such items will be used to further our mission. You can deduct the fair market value of your gift up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income. Please call us to determine which gifts we could accept or visit our donation criteria at Donate Your Unneeded Computers!
- Give When You Search or Shop on the Internet

Click on the following link to allow your GoodSearch/GoodShop activities to generate a percentage of your purchases for donation to NHU direct from the stores where you shop. Do you shop Amazon.com? Click on the following link to find out how to elect Amazon.com to donate a percentage of your eligible purchases to NHU at Amazon.
- Use the Itemized Income Tax Deduction
Do you wish to itemize your income tax deductions, but only have enough for the standard deduction limit? (For 2016, $12,600 for married filing jointly and $6,300 for singles.) An extra year-end gift or accelerating future contributions for the coming year can reach your goal of itemization.
- Avoid Tax on an Investment of Increased Value
Do you wish to avoid the capital gain of assets that have increased in value such as stocks, bonds, real estate or mutual funds? Take a charitable income tax deduction by donating investment property and by giving the investment directly to New Horizons Un-Limited, there will be no capital gain tax to diminish the value of the gift. NHU receives more, while it costs you less. Property must have been owned for at least one year and must be less than 30% of your adjusted gross income. If the gifts are larger, they may qualify for a carry-forward amount for the following year.
- Give Unneeded Life Insurance
Do you wish to receive a charitable income tax deduction for all or a portion of an old life insurance policy that is no longer needed, or you need to cash in the insurance and are interested in reducing the taxes due from the sale? Give the unneeded policy to New Horizons Un-Limited and receive a charitable income tax deduction, or cash in the policy and give a lesser portion or name NHU beneficiary.
- Planned Giving
Do you wish to include New Horizons Un-Limited in your estate planning? Planned gifts include gifts through your will such as cash or property gifts, charitable gift annuities for giving highly appreciated property for income tax deduction based on fair market value, and charitable remainder trusts which allow one to give while retaining income for life.
- Reduce Estate Taxes
Many estates must still pay estate tax or income tax. You can give a gift per year to New Horizons Un-Limited to offset the estate tax. Through a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust you can make a gift to a charity before you are gone and may receive income that exceeds what you are earning now. After age 70-1/2 years you can receive life income up to a certain percentage of the gift amount through an annuity. Some of this may be tax-free offering another percentage of the gift amount.
