Ways of Giving

There are several ways to make a gift to the Historic Polegreen Foundation—each responsive to a donor's particular circumstances and each with distinct tax advantages. Campaign gifts are not intended to replace annual support for the Foundation's programs and services. The options below enable a donor to fulfill their wishes for the exciting projects at hand and for the ongoing annual program needs.

  • Outright Gift: You may elect to make an outright gift either of cash or securities as the most direct way to give. A gift of appreciated securities, whether publicly traded or from a private company, may provide greater tax advantages than gifts of cash. The donor can deduct the current fair market value as a charitable gift, avoiding capital gains tax on the appreciation. Outright gifts of marketable real or personal property are also possible.
  • Multi-Year Pledge: You may choose to pledge to the foundation. Pledges can be fulfilled over a period of one to five years. Here, too, gifts to The Annual Fund can be planned and pledged over the course of any special effort or campaign.
  • Corporate Matching Gifts: Donors can increase community support to the organization through corporate matching gifts programs. You (and/or your spouse) are encouraged to contact your employer or former employer to inquire about a matching gifts program.
  • Planned Gift: There are a variety of planned giving options enabling donors to fulfill their commitment or even consider a larger gift level for the Foundation. Options promoted include: gifts of stock, real or other personal property; or, such deferred gifts as life insurance, annuities, lead and remainder trusts and bequests.

To discuss these gift options, please contact us. If you would prefer to make a gift online, you can do so here.
