Ways to Support EBACC Financial
Gifts of Cash/Credit Card – Giving cash is the simplest way to begin a fund, add to an existing fund, or make a gift of any size to support EBACC. You can also make your gift with any major credit card.
Securities – Gifts of appreciated stock to qualified charities like EBACC enable donors to avoid capital gains, and such gifts can be deducted at full market value, up to 30% of your adjusted gross income, with the ability to carry forward amounts exceeding your allowance for an additional five years.
Mutual Fund Shares – EBACC accepts gifts of mutual funds.
Real Estate – Gifts of real estate can be used to establish or add to a charitable fund. Prospective gifts of real estate will be carefully reviewed prior to acceptance.
Personal Property – As with gifts of real estate, gifts of tangible personal property such as antiques, art, collections—will be considered.
Life Insurance – When life insurance is no longer needed for wealth replacement, it can be a tax advantageous way to provide a significant charitable gift. You may give EBACC a paid-up policy or one on which you are continuing to pay. You may receive a number of tax benefits from making such a gift, including reduced estate and income taxes.
IRAs and Retirement Assets – You can name EBACC as a charitable beneficiary of your IRA, and other retirement assets such as 401(k) and 403(b) plans. Donors over the age of 70 can also ask their retirement plan administrator to make a charitable IRA gift directly to the Adams County Community Foundation. Please contact the Community Foundation first before you initiate such a gift. (Please note: Your IRA gift must come directly to the Community Foundation and not be directed to a Donor Advised Fund.)
Bequests – You can include EBACC in your Will as a charitable bequest.
Charitable Trust Remainder or Lead Gift Beneficiary- You may create a charitable trust and direct the charitable interest to any Community Foundation fund to support your charitable wishes.
