How to Give

How to Give

 

Gifts of cash:

  • Cash gifts are immediate and, if you itemize your taxes, your outright gifts of cash are fully deductible for federal income tax purposes.
  •  

Bequests:

  • After providing for loved ones, name ACCF a beneficiary in your will to ensure a permanent legacy of helping ACC students. (Check with your estate planner.)

  • Tell your loved ones you would like ACCF to be listed to receive memorial gifts in your obituary.

 

Charitable gift annuity:

  • Transfer at least $10,000 to ACCF now and receive a guaranteed above market rate of return for the remainder of your life. Perfect for those who live off their assets and who are worried about market volatility.

  • Immediate tax benefits may be realized.

  • Remaining asset value transfers to ACCF use upon passing of the donor.

 

Vehicles and equipment:

  • Certain programs at ACC may benefit from donations of non-cash items that help educate students in current techniques and technologies.

  • Such donations may be tax-deductible.

 

Gifts of life insurance:

  • A life insurance policy that is no longer needed can be a perfect vehicle for a gift. Name ACCF owner and beneficiary of the policy. The current cash value and future premiums paid may be tax deductible. (Check with your life insurance agent for details.)

 

Gifts of stock

Giving long-term appreciated stock may offer you a two- fold tax savings:

  • 1. You avoid paying capital tax on the increase of the value of the stock.
  • 2. You receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock at the time of donation.

 

Gifts of real estate

  • Gifts of real estate allow the donor to avoid capital gains tax and realize a charitable deduction on the full fair market value of the real estate.

 

 

How your Gift will be Used

How your Gift will be Used

 

Dear Friend of the Acc Foundation,

 

First of all, we are indeed grateful for your past and continuing support of the Acc Foundation. Since its founding in 1983, we have helped more 15,000 students achieve their educational goals. Our mission has been to assist any qualified student with financial support and we are proud of our record of giving and for the immense support we receive from individuals and corporations in Alamance County and the surrounding areas. We continue to be inspired by the generous support of our donors who have allowed us to provide aid to students, even in the economically challenging times experienced over the past four years.

 

This letter is for information purposes. We want to let you know that we have made a clarifying change in our mission statement and we want to let you know the reason why. As we assess our continued desire and ability to support our students, the board has thoroughly evaluated our resources and adjusted our mission to reflect the changes in our environment. In the midst of the most recent economic pressures: ACC has experienced record high enrollment; tuition rates have risen 68% in the past five years;and federal and state aid programs have tightened student eligibility standards dramatically. Even still, we have continued to provide expansive student support.

 

But in order to maintain fiscal responsibility and our mission to serve students in need, we realize that a "guarantee" to provide aid to all qualified students is unrealistic. We will continue to strive for that goal as our vision for the organization but in reality we understand that may not always be possible. In an effort to reconcile our available resources with the demonstrated needs of our students, the board has revised our mission as follows:

 

"The ACC Foundation exists to aid students with a demonstrated financial need in reaching their educational goals, while supporting the mission of ACC."

 

The new mission keeps the focus squarely on the students with greatest need, while allowing for programs that help retain students and provide additional educational enrichment opportunities.

 

We thank you for your generous support in the past. Please let us know if you have any questions about this letter by contacting Carolyn Rhode at 336-506-4128 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Sincerely,
