How to give to the Greencroft Foundation – Greencroft Communities

  1. Cash
  2. Gifts by cash, credit card or check.
  3. Bequests
  4. A bequest is a very simple and uncomplicated way to help provide for the future of Greencroft Communities. A bequest may be of a specific sum, a percentage, or the residue of an estate, and may consist of cash, securities, life insurance proceeds, real estate and/or personal property.
  5. Charitable Gift Annuity
  6. In exchange for an irrevocable gift of cash, securities or other assets, one or two donors receive a fixed sum each year for life. The amount of fixed income is based on the donor(s) age(s), and in most cases, part of each payment is tax–free.
  7. Investment Assets
  8. Stocks and bonds, retirement funds, real estate and other property, if they have grown in value, make it possible to give a larger donation for less cost and even provide tax benefits for you.
  9. Life Insurance
  10. Gifts of life insurance are a great way to leverage your giving. Donate paid–up life insurance policies with cash values, or new policies, with the Greencroft Foundation named as the owner and the beneficiary. Some of our supporters no longer need their life insurance policy (purchased years ago to provide for children or other family members) and they donate the policy to Greencroft Foundation.
  11. Securities
  12. Securities, both publicly traded and closely held, and bonds can be used to make a gift to Greencroft Foundation. A donor is entitled to a charitable tax deduction equal to the value of the securities on the date of the gift. Greencroft Foundation is able to sell the securities and use the proceeds, without reduction by capital gains taxes because of Greencroft Foundation’s status as a nonprofit organization. Gifts of closely held stock require additional planning and may require approval by Greencroft Foundation’s Gift Acceptance Committee.
  13. Corporate Gift
  14. If you are an owner or CEO of a business, consider making a corporate gift through which you may derive federal tax benefits as well as additional benefits.
  15. Corporate Matching Gifts
  16. Some corporations provide a matching amount for an employee contribution. If your company provides this benefit, it is a great way to increase your donation. To find out if your company or spouse’s company offers a matching gift program, contact the company’s Human Resources office.

We encourage you to consult your financial advisor or attorney before choosing any of these plans.
