WAYS TO GIVE

Navy FamilyThrough the years, your Navy Supply Corps Foundation has played an instrumental role in the lives of over 2,500 students through educational scholarships.  Your foresight and generosity have made this tremendous accomplishment possible.  But what about the future?  How can you ensure that all the good you’ve done in your career, and in your life, continues on for the generations yet to come?

Those who wear, or have worn the oakleaf, come from various walks of life and a variety of backgrounds.  Though all of us, when we each look back on our life and career, probably “caught a break” somewhere along the way.  Often the “break” was in the form of a leader or a mentor who provided support or some form of encouragement when it was most needed.  Such help and mentorship in times of need is the history of legends and, as our time marches on, the names of such leaders and mentors in our lives are fondly, and often reverently, recalled.

How will you be recalled? As a Navy Supply Corps Foundation Member, one way to help future generations achieve the same success and fulfillment that you’ve accomplished in your life is to include the Navy Supply Corps Foundation in your Estate Plan and become a member of the Tench Francis Legacy Society. Designating a bequest to the Foundation is quicker and simpler than you may think—engagement with an attorney or financial advisor isn’t required and the bequest amount is totally up to you.

You have the rare opportunity, through a Tench Francis legacy bequest, to positively touch future generations in perpetuity.  If you’d like to receive more information, with no commitment, please take a moment and send a quick email to Executive Director Dan Pionk.  Thanks for all that you do for the good of others.

A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a gift to charity. If you have a life insurance policy that has outlasted its original purpose, consider making a gift of your insurance policy. For example, you may have purchased a policy to provide for minor children and they are now financially independent adults.

A WORD ABOUT TAX DEDUCTIBLE GIFTS TO THE FOUNDATION

Under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, the Navy Supply Corps Foundation is a non-profit tax-exempt organization.

The Foundation is supported by private donations from individuals, corporations, and foundations and does not receive any government funding. From time to time, donors, when dealing with the Navy Supply Corps Foundation, require a tax identification number. NSCF uses the federal identification number: 23-7066533.

Each year when you prepare your tax return, you face a potential federal tax on your capital gains. One simple way to reduce your taxes is to provide a gift to the Foundation. By providing a gift of stock or property that has appreciated in value, you can claim the fair market value for tax purposes (subject to IRS limitations). This allows you to provide significant support for the Foundation without a significant outlay of cash.

Gifts of stock or property can also be donated through a charitable remainder trust. This can provide immediate tax benefits, income from the trust, and still provide support for the Foundation. Contact your tax advisor for additional information.

If you need more information on potential tax savings, contact your tax advisor or CAPT (Ret) Dan Pionk, Executive Director, Navy Supply Corps Foundation, 2385 Godby Road, P.O. Box – 490165, College Park, GA 30349 or call (706) 354-4111 or at executivedirector@usnscf.com.
