Gifts of Cash
By far the most popular choice, gifts of cash are usually in the form of a check, and are fully tax deductible if you itemize your deductions on your federal income tax form. Simply mail your gift of cash to the Virginia College Fund at the address above.
A Temporary Gift
By setting aside assets in a Charitable Lead Trust (definition), you can make a charitable gift that results in immediate funding to the Virginia College Fund for a limited period of time.
Your Retirement Plan
Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) and company-sponsored pension and profit sharing plans may be appealing sources of charitable gifts and may produce the greatest tax savings for your heirs.
Gifts That Give Back
It is possible to make a gift to the Virginia College Fund and retain annual income for the remainder of your life and or the life of a loved one. Through a Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust (definition), Charitable Remainder Unitrust (definition), or a Charitable Gift Annuity (definition), you may plan for retirement & care for your loved ones.
Gifts of Highly Appreciated Securities
A gift to the Virginia College Fund of highly appreciated and/or low-yielding securities is tax-efficient and has little or no effect upon your current spendable income.
After providing for your loved ones in your will, you may give a specific amount, a percentage of your estate, or all or part of what remains after individuals have been remembered to the Virginia College Fund.
Gifts of Life Insurance
A policy no longer needed to assure the security of loved ones and given in whole or part to the Virginia College Fund may result in both income and estate tax benefits.
Gifts of Property
A gift of property owned for longer than one year entitles you to an income tax deduction for the full current market value of the property, not just the amount you paid for it.
