|Ways to Give or Invest in Peak to Peak Charter School|
Ø Cash gifts can be given in a variety of ways—by check, credit card, or electronic funds transfer (EFT). You can give securely online today. You may also set up a monthly gift if you choose. Just $93/month makes up the funding shortfall for one student. You may also download a pledge form and send in your donation to: Friends of Peak to Peak, 800 Merlin Drive, Lafayette, CO 80026 or drop it off in the Friends of Peak to Peak box outside the south office. Sponsorships and underwriting opportunities are great ways to give back to the school.
Ø Matching Gift Programs may be available through your employer—doubling, even tripling your investment to Peak to Peak! Check now to see if your company offers such a program by searching our matching gift database. You may also contact your human resources department. Peak to Peak has received thousands of dollars of matching gift support and welcomes your effort to have your contributions matched and even tripled in some cases!
Ø Gifts of Appreciated Assets/Stocks/Bonds: You can transfer appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares you have owned for one year or more to Friends of Peak to Peak Charter School which will be sold and the proceeds used in support of Peak to Peak’s mission and core values. You receive the benefit of an immediate income-tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer, no matter what you originally paid for them. You pay no capital gains tax on the transfer when the stock is sold. Giving appreciated stock could be more beneficial than giving cash. Please go to GIVING > Planned Giving for more information.
Ø IRA Distributions can be gifted to Friends of Peak to Peak to reduce your income taxes or increase the amount you are able to donate to a qualified charity. IRA owners over the age of 70.5 years of age can donate distributions directly to Friends of Peak to Peak. You will not get a tax deduction for your charitable gift, the IRA distribution would be excluded from your taxable income and would count toward your annual required minimum, distribution.
Ø Please consider turning your real estate into something far more than a structure or piece of land by deeding your residence, second home, commercial property or raw land to Friends of Peak to Peak. A gift of real estate today can save you the hassle and expense on a property you no longer want. You can also make a difference tomorrow by giving your property through a bequest. Either way, your gift will “in deed” have real impact, and you may avoid capital gains. Before your sell, think about making a real difference with a real estate gift.
Ø Gifts-in-Kind are non-monetary items of tangible personal property such as art, books, equipment, and other personal assets or materials that represent value to Peak to Charter School. More information on Gift-in-kind donations can be found here.
