Other Ways to Give
Gifts of Stock
When you transfer appreciated stock directly to GCCA, you can make a difference and minimize taxes on capital gains. Both you and the Art Center receive the full benefit of your donation, making stock gifts a tax-savvy strategy for charitable giving.
Donor Advised Funds (DAF)
A donor-advised fund is a centralized charitable account that allows philanthropic individuals, families, and businesses to make tax-deductible donations of cash or publicly traded stock to their favorite charitable organizations. GCCA can accept grants recommended through your Donor Advised Fund.
Required Minimum Distributions (RMD) from IRAs
Make a required minimum distribution from an IRA or other retirement account as a donation to GCCA. By transferring your RMD from a retirement account directly to GCCA, you can avoid increases to your taxable income.
Memorial and Tribute Gifts
Make a gift in honor or memory of someone. We’ll send you an acknowledgment letter for your gift, and we’ll notify your honoree or designated family member of your thoughtfulness. Memorial and tribute gifts can be made online, via mail, or by phone. Please indicate the name of the person the tribute is in honor or memory of, as well as the name and address of the person that should be notified.
If your employer offers a matching gift program, please request a matching gift form and submit it along with your donation to GCCA. We’ll acknowledge receipt of your gift and handle submitting the matching gift form to your employer. We’ll even let you know when the matching gift has been received.
