Commodities, Stocks or Securities
Making a stock gift is an easy and tax-smart way to invest in the Clore Center. A gift of appreciated securities saves taxes twice. You may receive an income tax deduction for the full market value of the donated shares if you’ve held the securities for more than one year, and you may avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation.
Cash basis producers have an opportunity to make a gift of commodities (livestock, grains, grains, tree fruit, etc.) directly to the Clore Center. The fair market value of the gifted commodity is excluded from taxable income of the donor, resulting in the potential for significant federal and self-employment tax savings.
If you are looking to make a significant gift to further the Clore Center’s mission, a bequest through your will or trust is a common and flexible way you can support our cause. Bequests allow you to take care of your family’s financial needs first, and make a larger gift than you thought possible.
Gifts of endowed funds tie your wishes to the Clore Center’s needs. They enable you to put some of your wealth to work for a cause you believe in, while leaving a personal legacy or memorializing a loved one. If you decide to establish a named endowed fund for the benefit of the Clore Center, our staff will work with you to establish fund guidelines and to discuss the most beneficial and tax-wise giving strategies.
In-Kind & Product Donations
Providing a product or experience in-kind gift for the Clore Center’s annual events including the Legends gala, Clore Classic, is a terrific way to show your support while receiving recognition and promotion of your company.
