WILL YOU JOIN US?

Wills are the simplest and most straight forward way to give to a charity you care about at a level that is typically not possible to achieve during a lifetime. Having a will allows you to make a charitable gift that can affect the long-term financial stability of an organization you love, whether that is helping to build an endowment or operating fund or impacting a specific program as the Coffey gift has done. We have chosen to support Jefferson Center in this way, and we hope that you will be able to consider joining us.If you are interested in more information, please contact Jefferson Center’s development office at 540.685.2312. We also encourage you to discuss your options with a tax or estate planning professional who can best advise you based on your circumstances.

WAYS OF GIVING

There are a number of ways to invest in Jefferson Center to help expand the mission and reach. The information below is not exhaustive, but is meant to stimulate further inquiry. We would be pleased to work with you to determine the best way for you to make your investment. We also advise you to consult your financial planner before finalizing any gift.

Pledges

There are a number of ways to invest in Jefferson Center to help expand the mission and reach. The information below is not exhaustive, but is meant to stimulate further inquiry. We would be pleased to work with you to determine the best way for you to make your investment. We also advise you to consult your financial planner before finalizing any gift.

MATCHING GIFTS

Many companies provide matching gif t opportunities for their employees. Contact your HR department for more information. Any matching gift forms may be sent to the Jefferson Center development offices. Please include your pledge or payment information.

SECURITIES

Assets qualified as long-term capital (assets held for at least a year and a day), should be transferred directly to Jefferson Center through a broker. The capital gains tax on appreciation is eliminated, and the current market value of the gift may be deducted as a charitable contribution, up to 30 percent of adjusted gross income. Excess beyond 30 percent can be carried forward for five years.
For the capital gains tax exclusion to apply, a donation must be made before the securities are sold.

PLEASE USE OUR STOCK CONTRIBUTION FORM

DEPRECIATED SECURITIES

For securities that have decreased in value since purchase, it is usually better to sell the assets and then donate the proceeds. Both the loss on investment and the donation will qualify for tax deductions.

CLOSELY HELD SECURITIES

A gift of closely-held securities, such as those of a family corporation, is generally treated the same as a gift of marketable securities, but could also reduce liability for accumulated earnings tax.

Please consult a tax specialist when considering such a gift.

For additional information related to all giving,
contact the Development Office:
