Gifts of Cash

The simplest way to make a gift is with cash. The "Annual Fund" designation allows your gift to be used where it is most needed.

Giving cash is popular due to its simplicity. Cash gifts may be made by currency, check, money order, bank draft or credit card. You will receive a charitable income tax deduction for the amount of the gift.

The Benefit to You

Current income tax savings, thus lowering the cost of your gift. You can claim charitable deductions up to 50% of your adjusted gross income for gifts of cash in the year you make the gift. Excess deductions may be carried over for up to five years.
