What are the advantages OF giving TO THE LRCA Foundation?
Charitable gifts to the LRCA Foundation are generally tax-deductible. Certain gifts such as charitable remainder trusts, which designate the Foundation as the lifetime recipient of income or as the beneficiary of the trust, may provide considerable tax incentives for the donor. Charitable gifts may include cash, stocks, real estate and personal property.
How can I give to or establish a named endowment?
You may add to any existing endowment fund with a gift of cash, or with a planned or deferred gift to be conveyed upon death. Property such as stocks, mutual funds, and real estate can be given while allowing you to still control the cash needed for daily life. When you give appreciated properties you may receive a deduction based on the full or fair market value of the asset, while also avoiding capital gains tax due if/when you sell the property.
To establish a named endowment a donor shall give a minimum of $25,000 as a one-time gift or within a period no more than two calendar years. Each named endowment must be approved by the Foundation Board and a certified gift agreement will be produced for both donor and foundation records. All named endowments also receive an annual performance update for purposes of stewardship and accountability.
