For All Time: Phase II

Pledge

Cash

NAWCC gratefully accepts gifts in the form of cash, check, credit card, EFT, and wire transfer.

Publicly Traded Securities

Gifts of appreciated stocks are a great way to avoid capital gains tax. You are credited with the average of the high and low quoted selling price on the date the donor relinquishes control. Please complete a Stock Transfer Form.

Gifts of Horological Items

Such gifts are subject to review on a case-by-case basis. Any such gifts must have a use related to the NAWCC purpose and benefit the NAWCC as an object of cultural value. Donors are expected to obtain their own qualified appraisal of the donated object and to support transportation of the item to Columbia, PA.

In Kind/Tangible Personal Property

Donations may be sold, with proceeds used toward the campaign or utilized in NAWCC operations to reduce budget expenses. Such donations must be in accordance with IRS rules and the NAWCC Gift Acceptance Policy.

Insurance Policies

By either donating a life insurance policy outright or naming NAWCC as beneficiary, you can provide a large gift that can provide a lasting legacy. Charitable riders on cash value insurance policies can also be used to make a gift.

Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA) Rollover

Up to $100,000 may be transferred directly from your IRA, yielding tax advantages if you are age 70½ or older.

Closely Held Stock

Such gifts must be approved by the NAWCC Board prior to acceptance.
