The success of our Centennial Campaign: Faithful to Our Legacy – Embracing the Future will in large part determine the AMAA’s ability to meet the needs of those who depend on us in the coming decades. It is important that everyone participate as generously as possible. The level at which you join in this effort could be enhanced by planning how you make your contribution and by what assets you consider for a donation.
Cash Gifts and Pledges
An outright gift of cash would be very welcome. Cash, in the form of a check, is one of the most common forms of giving to the AMAA.
Pledges may be fulfilled over a three or five-year period if that makes it possible for you to maximize your support.
Cash gifts completed within a calendar year may result in an income tax deduction. Such gifts may be deductible for income tax purposes at their value on the date contributed.
Gifts of Appreciated Securities
Recently sold securities, or other investments, offer a good opportunity for you to consider donating a portion of the cash proceeds. You may avoid paying the capital gains tax that would be due on a sale.
Endowment Fund Gifts
An endowment fund in the name of an individual family, organization, etc. can be established with an outright contribution in the amount of $1,000 or more designated toward any of the Campaign Endowment Funds. You can honor or memorialize a loved one, by having the fund exist in their name(s).
By including AMAA in your estate plan, you can make a difference in someone else’s life. Bequests can be arranged through a variety of giving instruments, options include giving through your will, living trusts, life insurance, charitable gift annuities, insurance, or retirement accounts. Realized bequests will be credited toward the Campaign.
