Opportunities for Giving
Contributions to TCCES can be made through the Annual Fund or the Forward Future Foundation in a number of ways, including the following.
Each and every prayer for students, faculty, staff and administration, as well as your participation at the schools or in any special event, is a great gift to TCCES.
Gifts of Cash
This is the most popular form of investing in TCCES. Every donation, whether unrestricted or for a specific purpose, is tax deductible.
Many companies have programs that will match individual financial contributions to TCCES, effectively doubling the contribution. Several area employers will make a donation based upon the number of volunteer hours a worker contributes to an organization.
Gifts of Securities
Gifts to TCCES in the form of stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares yield considerable, immediate tax advantages for the donor. Appreciated securities can be transferred without causing the donor to realize gain on the appreciation, still yielding a current deduction.
Planned gifts are contributions left by a donor through his or her estate. A statement in the donor's will or trust can direct the personal representative to gift to TCCES.
By designating TCCES as a sole or shared beneficiary on a life insurance policy, a donor is able to make a substantial contribution at a relatively small cost. Premium payments are tax deductible.
A bequest to TCCES may reduce the taxation on one's estate, making the net cost of the gift less than its face value. This can be done with a new or existing policy, IRA annuity, employer group term insurance, or your retirement plan.
Trusts and Annuities
Trusts can be established to allow TCCES to receive a lifetime income.
Memorial Tributes and Gifts
Gifts can be given in memory of a friend or a loved one. Gifts may also be given in honor of an anniversary, birthday, graduation or other significant event.
