Make a Multi-Year Pledge
Sign a pledge today and make two payments, one by the end of 2019 and the other by the end of 2020.
Gift Appreciated Securities
Appreciated securities can make an excellent gift which might enable you to avoid capital gain taxes and to potentially also receive an income tax deduction.
Make and IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution
If you are 70 ½ or older you can direct up to $100,000 of your required minimum distribution (RMD) to a qualified charity. You will not receive an income tax deduction for such a gift but will forgo receiving income that might otherwise be taxable.
“I’m excited to help lead this campaign. There will certainly be a greater need for long-term care in the near future and the larger rooms and additional amenities for residents at the new facility are just wonderful. We need this in Centre County.”
Molly Schwartz, Centre Care campaign’s honorary chair
