  • Ways to Give

    Your Gift Will Make a Difference

    Retained life estate

    One of your valued possessions, your home, can become a significant gift to us while you and your spouse are living in it.


    Leave your legacy by making a gift in your will to the PCC Foundation.  A bequest is one of the simplest ways to give a significant gift.


    If you want to provide permanent financial support for programs, consider an endowment.  An endowment is truly a way to make your philanthropic vision and gift last forever.  It not only offers on-going support, but provides tax benefits and public memorial for the donors.

    Retirement plan assets

    Retirement plan assets can be the most heavily taxed of all your assets if left to heirs.  Following your death, these assets may, in fact, generate income and subject family members to both income and estate taxes.  Ask us about options that let you provide for your family while also meeting your charitable goals.

    Gifts of Cash

    It’s the simplest way to give; however, you can deduct a cash gift for income tax purposes only in the year in which you contribute.  Your cash gifts are deductible up to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income for the taxable year with any excess deductible over the next five years.

    Charitable remainder trust

    This trust can increase your income, reduce your immediate tax burden, unlock appreciated investments and ultimately provide very important support.  You irrevocably place assets in exchange for an income either for life or for a term of years.  As the donor, you may fund the trust with cash, securities or real estate.  At the end of the trust term or when all income beneficiaries pass away, the remaining principal transfers directly to the PCC Foundation as the remaining beneficiary for any use you designate.

    Charitable lead trust

    If you goal is to provide an inheritance for your children, you may want to consider a Charitable Lead Trust.  The benefits would reduce taxes that would otherwise be due on assets left to children and/or grandchildren while allowing you to make a substantial gift over a period of years until those assets are passed on to the family.

    Gifts of securities

    Stock – whether or not publicly traded – can also be used as a charitable gift and still allow you to maintain a controlling position.
