Ways To Give
Donate Stocks, Bonds, or Annuities
Gifts to the Community Arts Center in the form of stocks, bonds, or mutual funds appreciated in value –as well as closely-held private stock – may be especially attractive under the current tax laws.
Make a Qualified Charitable Distribution from your Traditional IRA
An IRA Qualified Charitable Contribution allows you to meet your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) requirements without adding to your taxable income. This can benefit you while supporting the important work of the Community Arts Center! Using this option, you would instruct your IRA administrator to direct an IRA distribution to the Community Arts Center, as a qualified 501(c)(3) charity. Exercising this option means you will not be taxed on the distribution, and for many individuals, this provides advantages over a direct gift to the Center.
Become a Legacy Donor
A bequest is a gift from your estate. It is one of the most popular and flexible ways that you can support the Arts Center and our mission. You can make a bequest to CAC by including language in your will or living trust leaving a portion of your estate to the organization. You can also designate CAC as a beneficiary of your retirement account or life insurance policy. For sample bequest language or to learn more, please email Paul Downie or call (610) 566-1713, Ext 12. With thoughtful consideration, you can help ensure that the CAC will thrive for decades to come.
Give through a Donor-Advised Fund
Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) are the fastest-growing tools for philanthropic giving. DAFs provide a convenient and tax-efficient method of giving to support CAC’s mission and programs. They can be easily set up through a community foundation or a financial institution to serve as a flexible charitable giving vehicle. For more information on how to establish a DAF, contact your financial advisor or local community foundation.
