Planned Giving 

Cash Gifts are the simplest and most convenient way to participate in the charitable works of the NCCF. Your cash gifts qualify for maximum deductibility for income tax purposes. Online gifts are accepted through PayPal on the NCCF website.

 Appreciated Securities is a gift option that is easily transacted and often offers substantial tax savings to you. Your tax benefit is unique in that your tax deduction is based upon the fair market value of the security on the date of transfer and you do not pay any income tax on the appreciation.

 Bequests to the NCCF can be written into your will in a number of ways. All such bequests are deductible for estate and inheritance tax purposes.

 Retirement Plan Accounts are taxable upon the death of the contributing employee; excessive taxes are levied upon heirs (other than a spouse). These taxes can be avoided almost entirely when working with the NCCF. Both your heirs and your community can benefit. 

Currently, individuals age 70½ and older may make direct transfers from their IRAs (totaling up to $100,000 per year) to 501(c)(3) charities without having to count the transfers as income for federal income tax purposes.

 Life Insurance is another avenue for leaving a gift. If you name the NCCF as the owner and beneficiary of an existing or new life insurance policy, you receive an immediate tax deduction. All premium payments you make thereafter are also deductible.

 Individual Membership is a contribution of $100 each year ($200 for sustaining membership), assuring that maximum dollars are available for grant making in your community.

 Business Membership is for community-minded businesses who contribute a minimum of $200 each year ($500 for sustaining membership), thereby assuring that maximum dollars are available for grant making in the community.
