AN OPPORTUNITY TO SUPPORT OUR STUDENTS!

Please give generously to assist Concord and Carlisle students to achieve their dreams of post-secondary education.
The Scholarship Fund of Concord and Carlisle Trustees will work with you to help identify the giving opportunity that suits your situation and goals. Contact a Trustee by sending an email to info@thescholarshipfundofcc.org.

Opportunities include:

  • Annual Appeal contributions (unrestricted or restricted)
  • Phonathon contributions (unrestricted or restricted)
  • Gifts over time (e.g., the Kenneally Fund and the Norton Levy Fund grew over time to reach the $20,000 benchmark for named funds)
  • Deferred gifts (charitable trusts and other life income gifts)
  • Bequests (of property, stocks, and holdings)
  • Donor Advised Fund contributions
We will be pleased to discuss tax-saving advantages, timing of distributions, and the revocable options that may be exercised by your estate. Contact a Trustee at info@thescholarshipfundofcc.org.


MAKE A TAX-DEDUCTIBLE CONTRIBUTION

Send a check, payable to The Scholarship Fund of Concord and Carlisle, 34 Walden St. Unit 217, Concord, MA 01742-2542. If you wish to credit your contribution to an established fund, please indicate the Fund's name (listed below) on your check or in a cover letter.





Make a credit card donation online through Network for Good. When using this feature, you will have an opportunity to designate a Named Fund, recognition, or memorial. You will also be able to send an e-card (at no cost) to inform an honoree of your choice that you have made this donation. Your donation will appear on your credit card statement as a donation to Network for Good. It will, however, be conveyed to The Scholarship Fund of Concord and Carlisle. Note: You will be provided the option of adding the 5% credit card processing fee to your donation amount. This will negate an expense for the The Scholarship Fund of Concord and Carlisle and will be greatly appreciated.

Donate securities to The Scholarship Fund of Concord and Carlisle (instructions here)

Donate vehicles, boats, trailers, snowmobiles, motorcycles, etc., to The Scholarship Fund of Concord and Carlisle through DONATION LINE, LLC. This is a very simple process and free pick-up can be arranged virtually anywhere within the U.S.

Make a Charitable IRA Donation: under the Pension Protection Act of 2006 (H.R. 4, Public Law 109-208)(the "Pension Protection Act") taxpayers 70.5 years of age or older may donate to charity directly from their IRA account. The distributions will be tax-free and avoid the penalty on early withdrawals. Taxpayers are allowed to donate up to $100,000 per year from their IRA. Since the distribution will not be included in taxable income, individuals will not be able to claim a tax deduction for the charitable contribution. (This provision expired 12/31/13. However, it may be extended. We urge you to consult your tax advisor.)

If you are unable to donate at this time, please consider sending us your pledge to be paid within this calendar year. This helps us tremendously as we plan our budgets and, equally important, it enables us to concentrate our fundraising efforts on others whom we've been unable to reach. Pledge by sending us an email at info@ccscholarshipfund.org.


START YOUR OWN NAMED FUND

Consider establishing a Named Fund to honor a loved one or someone you admire. A $25,000 investment will provide a permanent, annual scholarship. For details and assistance, email the Trustees at info@thescholarshipfundofcc.org. We will respond to your inquiry promptly.

IRS REMINDER ON CHARITABLE GIVING

The tax benefit for charitable contributions is available for taxpayers who itemize contributions. Only contributions actually made during the tax year are deductible. (For example, if a taxpayer pledged $500 in September but paid the charity only $200 by 12/31/15, the 2015 deduction would be $200.) Credit card charges and payments by check are included in the year they are given to the charity even though the taxpayer may not pay the credit card bill or have the bank account debited until the next calendar year.
