CASH AND GIFT PLEDGE
The advantage of this method is that the actual cost of the gift (to you) is less than the total dollar amount given to the CCA Foundation. You can deduct up to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income in the year you make a gift. Any excess over 50 percent can be deducted over the next five years. (Future cash pledges should be made either in writing or by means of a pledge card. Pledges cannot be claimed until the gift is made.)
Check to see if your employer (or spouse’s employer) matches employee donations to qualified nonprofit organizations like the CCA Foundation. Some even double or triple employee gifts.
STOCKS AND BONDS
Current market conditions have created ideal giving opportunities for these appreciated assets. If you held the asset more than one year, you can deduct its fair market value up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income and owe no capital gains taxes from its transfer to the CCA Foundation.
You can give private, commercial, or agricultural property to the CCA Foundation. If your property has decreased in value, you should consider selling it and contributing the proceeds to receive both capital loss and charitable gift deductions. We prefer that you contact us during the early stages of your planning so we can jointly decide the best use of the property by the Foundation. An environmental assessment may be required.
The Foundation accepts equipment that can be of some use by the College or can be quickly sold. It is best to contact the Foundation Office to discuss potential equipment before making such a gift. You also must obtain an appraisal for equipment contributions over $5,000 (
