Planning Your Gift
Gifts may be donated in various ways
The financial benefits of gifts to the Green Dragon Foundation depend on your situation, but the opportunity to make a difference for Lewisburg Area School District students is always great. It is through the generosity of gifts like yours that our students are served by the Green Dragon Foundation.
Gifts of Cash
This is the most common method of providing a gift. A cash gift to the Green Dragon Foundation is tax-deductible. You may donate through PayPal or you may send your donation to:
The Green Dragon Foundation
115 Farley Circle, Suite 306
Lewisburg, PA 17837
Does your company have a matching gift program? Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. If your company has a matching gift program, you could double or possibly triple your gift quickly and easily.
Gifts of Appreciated Securities
A gift of appreciated securities allows the donor to make a significant contribution at a reduced cost. Federal tax laws allow a charitable deduction for the full market value of securities on the date of the gift.
Gifts of Life Insurance
Absolute Assignment: This method transfers ownership of a policy that has outlived its original purpose to the individual.
Co-Beneficiary: This method names the Green Dragon Foundation as co-beneficiary of all or part of the proceeds of a new or existing policy.
These are provisions in wills to leave a gift to the Green Dragon Foundation. Charitable Bequests are fully deductible from the estate and can significantly reduce estate taxes on the balance of the estate. Bequests may be specified as a gift of cash or securities, real estate, or other property. Alternatively, they may take the form of percentage of the total estate. A donor may consider a residuary bequest, which is a gift of all of a portion of one’s estate after other conditions are met.
Please contact the Green Dragon Foundation, 115 Farley Circle, Suite 306, Lewisburg, PA 17837, (570) 522-8433 or email@example.com, so that we can provide more detailed information about charitable gifts and discuss with you and your advisor the most advantageous ways to make them.
