Have you ever considered giving a gift that would benefit the chapter or the cemetery project in the form of a donation?

There are a number of ways that our members can financially support the Chapter. Since we are a 501(c) (3), all contributions are tax deductible.

In addition to cash contributions, members may also consider the following:

Donations by Will
What a great way to help ensure that the mission of the Chapter will live on!

Donation of Property
A charitable deduction is allowable based on the property's fair market value. "Property" could include stocks, bonds, real estate, or practically anything for which a fair market value can be established. There are a number of income tax and estate tax advantages available to our members who donate appreciated property. Members should check with a lawyer or other professionals for details.

Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT)
This widely used estate planning tool can be especially helpful to a couple who wish to donate income producing assets to a qualified charity, but who would like to be able to use that income during their lifetimes.

A CRT permits them to irrevocably convert assets into a lifetime income stream without generating estate and capital gains taxes, while at the same time reducing current income taxes. When the trust ends, the remaining assets pass to the charity.

Members are strongly encouraged to contact an attorney or the Trust Department of your local bank to see if a Charitable Remainder Trust could be right for you.

If you have an interest in tracing your family in Jefferson County, Ohio, you are cordially welcome to become a member.
