Planned gifts, such as bequests and income-producing gifts, can provide benefits to your family both now and in the future. These are gifts that will live on, benefiting teachers for many generations to come. Other gift opportunities, including the use of retirement assets, allow for maximizing the current and future benefit to both your family and NCCAT.
Real Estate or Tangible Personal Property
NCCAT can accept gifts of real estate, allowing you to make a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the property. NCCAT can also elect to accept gifts of tangible personal property, and will provide the donor with a tax deduction for the appraised value of the gift on the date the gift is made. If you own property that has appreciated substantially in value, find out how estate planning that includes a nonprofit institution like NCCAT can reduce the tax burden on your estate and potentially generate income for you and your heirs. In some instances, by donating real property, you can increase the value of your estate 200 percent and still do great work in your community.
You can often double or even triple your gift to NCCAT with matching funds provided by your employer. Check with your company's personnel office or contact us to learn if your company offers a gift matching option.
