Giving Options

Gifts of Cash This is the easiest and most direct form of donation. Providing a monetary gift whether by cash, check, payroll deduction or via major credit card, provides you with an income tax deduction. Gifts of Stocks or Bonds If you own stocks or bonds for more than one year and they have increased in value, this type of gift allows you to avoid capital gains tax while receiving an immediate charitable income tax deduction. Your stockbroker can assist in transferring your gift of stock to our brokerage account. Life Insurance.

You can donate your policy or designate the Foundation as the beneficiary of your life insurance policy. Estate Plans, Wills & Trusts. A bequest is one of the easiest gifts to make. With the help of an advisor, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift to be made to family, friends, and/or the Grove City Chamber Foundation.

Allocating a certain dollar amount or percentage of your estate to the Foundation is a meaningful way to have your support continue beyond your lifetime.

The most common types of bequests are:

  • Percentage: Designate a percentage of your estate you want distributed to the Grove City Chamber Foundation
  • Specific: Designate a specific dollar amount to the Grove City Chamber Foundation
  • Residual: The Grove City Chamber Foundation will receive the remainder of your estate or a designated percentage, after all necessary costs and bequests to others have been satisfied.
  • Contingent: This assumes that you want to leave your entire estate to family and friends.

However, if you outlive any beneficiary, you can instruct that the Grove City Chamber Foundation receives that portion of your estate.
