WAYS TO GIVE to the Forsyth County Arts Alliance Fund at North Georgia Community Foundation (NGCF)

Give Now: Cash

Cash donations are tax-deductible and can be made at the link above, for a one-time or recurring gift.

Give Now: Securities

Appreciated securities donated to NGCF are deductible at their full market value up to 30% AGI each year. NGCF will liquidate and no capital gains tax is paid on the appreciated part of the gift. Accepted securities include publicly traded stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.

Give Later: Life Insurance

Gifts of life insurance policies may be made by naming NGCF as the owner and beneficiary. The donor receives an immediate tax deduction approximately equal to the cash surrender value. Any premiums paid thereafter by the donor are deductible for income tax purposes.

Give Later: Individual Retirement Accounts & Retirement Plans

Donors can name FCAA at NGCF as the beneficiary of IRAs and retirement plans. This gift helps avoid heavily taxable income to heirs.

Give Later: Bequests

Bequests are one of the easiest ways to give. They can be a specific dollar amount, a percentage of the estate, or the residual that remains after all other bequests.
