The Governor's School Foundation (GSF) ensures that all intellectually gifted students have the option of attending the Governor's School, regardless of cost. While the GSF does receive government funding, it is not enough to assure equal access to all students. Private donations pave the way for full accessibility.
Every contribution counts, $20.00, $10.00 or even $5.00 makes am impact!
TAX BENEFITS FROM OTHER FORMS OF GIFTS
Stock: The Governor’s School Foundation will also accept gifts of marketable securities. In addition to obtaining a tax benefit from a charitable deduction for the fair market value of the stock, you may avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation of the stock.
IRA Charitable Distribution: The “qualified charitable deduction” (QCD) is a strategy for donating to charities directly from an IRA after age 70 ½ in a tax advantaged manner. Making a QCD as opposed to a normal charitable gift has two main advantages. First, a QCD counts toward satisfying the individual’s required minimum distribution for that year. Second, the distribution is excluded from the taxpayer’s income – particularly advantageous under the new tax bill. Under the new tax bill very few people are expected to itemize their deductions and as a result the tax advantages of charitable giving will be lost. However, if you make a QCD, you get a full exclusion of that income from taxes – even if you don’t itemize your deductions.
Method of Transfer: For a gift of marketable securities, you should contact your broker to have the securities transferred to the Governor’s School Foundation. For an IRA charitable distribution, you should contact your IRA plan administrator to make a distribution from the IRA directly to the Governor’s School Foundation. If you are interested in making such a gift and have any questions, please contact Sandy Crumrine, Assistant Treasurer of the Governor’s School Foundation, at (910) 524-7071.
Disclaimer: You should consult your own tax advisor concerning the application of tax laws to your particular situation.
