You can establish a lasting legacy with a gift to the Britt Endowment Fund. Your tax deductible contribution will be invested with the Oregon Community Foundation, one of the nation's largest community trusts. When funds are invested the principal remains intact for generations to come. Earned interest is returned to Britt, which we use to offset annual operating expenses.
Special programs exist to endow a favorite instrument in the Britt Orchestra, to dedicate reserved bench seats with special access to tickets, to dedicate picnic tables in the Britt park and many other options.
Gifts can be made to offer recognition in whatever way you choose - as an individual name, business, memorial or thank you. Contributions can be made in any amount in the form of cash, appreciated stocks and securities, bequests, trusts or transfers of other assets.
On Friday, December 18, 2015, Congress passed a federal tax bill containing some good news for the non-profit sector. The tax deal, entitled the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015, retroactively reinstates and makes permanent several tax incentives. Most notable among these is the IRA charitable rollover, which had expired on January 1, 2015 and had been subject to congressional re-approval on an almost yearly basis.
The IRA charitable rollover allows individual taxpayers aged 70 ½ and older to donate up to $100,000 from their individual retirement accounts (IRAs) to charitable organizations tax free, thereby reducing their individual taxable income.
