A cash gift is the simplest way to establish a named fund or to add to an existing fund. Cash gifts are fully deductible up to 50 percent of the donor’s adjusted gross income in any one year. Deduction amounts exceeding this limit may be carried forward for up to five additional years.
Given outright or in the form of a pledge, gifts of cash are attractive because they are simple to make, create immediate impact, and are easily earmarked to support your community or favorite charitable organization. A cash gift of $100,000 from a donor in the 25% tax bracket can provide up to $25,000 in income tax savings for the donor and removes the $100,000 gift from the donor’s taxable estate.

The Lifetime Giving Society honors individuals and corporations who make cumulative gifts of $100,000 or more toward an endowed fund. Lifetime Society members will be recognized in perpetuity as contributors who leave a record of generosity and support for charitable causes in the Pine Belt.
