With a deferred donation you make your commitment today, but defer the benefit to CCA in the future. Your deferred donation to CCA can help you achieve your philanthropic goals while reducing or eliminating capital gains, income and estate taxes. We encourage you to consult your financial adviser before entering into any of these relatively complex gift agreements.

— A pledge is a statement of your intention to make regular donation payments over a specified period of time, typically three to five years. Each annual payment on your pledge may be eligible for an income tax charitable deduction that particular year.

Bequests — Your bequest can support CCA simply by having your attorney insert a few words in your will or trust document. The foundation’s estate and gift planning professionals will work personally with you and your adviser to ensure the wording of your bequest accurately expresses your wishes.

Charitable Lead Trusts — A lead trust can be used to transfer assets with a significantly reduced tax liability. It provides immediate income to CCA Foundation for a specified period, after which the remainder is distributed to you or your heirs.

Life-income Donations
— Life-income donations provide you and/or your loved ones with an income for life or for a specific number of years. These gifts include charitable remainder trusts, charitable gift annuities and deferred-payment charitable gift annuities. Life-income donations may entitle you to an income tax charitable deduction and a reduction or elimination of capital gains tax.

Retirement and Life Insurance Plans — Making the CCA Foundation a primary or contingent beneficiary of a retirement plan increases your philanthropic impact because income and estate taxes are not imposed on plan assets distributed to CCA. You may also name the foundation as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or of a bank instrument, such as a pay-on-death certificate of deposit.

APPRECIATED SECURITIES  -  If you own securities that you've held more than one year, transferring the to CCA Foundation may provide you with savings on capital gains and incomes taxes.

REAL ESTATE  -  Donating a personal residence, second home, income property or vacant or undeveloped land may result in a two-fold tax beneift: an avoidance of paying capital gains tax on the long-term appreciation, and the income tax charitable deduction.  It may even be posible to donate a portion of property (an undivided percentage interest) and keep a portion for yourself. 

TANGIBLE PERSONAL PROPERTY  -  Rare books, works of art, unique collections and other items of value may become donations to CCA Foundation and provide tax benefits for you. 

INTANGIBLE PERSONAL PROPERTY  -  Copyrights, patents and mineral rights can generate sustainable income for CCA's programs and/or projects. 

The CCA Foundation is the official recipient for all gifts to CCA. Checks should be made payable to the CCA Foundation, or you can make a donation online. Property should be transferred to the CCA Foundation, and property should be sold in the name of the CCA Foundation. If you need the CCA Foundation’s tax ID number, please contact the Foundation Office.
