Support your community’s future with us as we build an endowment for the Northampton Survival Center. Together we can make sure we will be here to help Feed the Future.
In 2015 we created the Feeding the Future endowment to ensure we are here to help those who need us in the years to come. The fund currently holds more than a half a million dollars. Our assets are conservatively invested for the long term, while a portion of the investment income can be used to address special challenges or new opportunities in the future.
Give a gift of $1000 or more in cash or securities. A gift designated for the endowment, in addition to your annual support, makes an immediate impact by generating investment revenue.
Make a gift directly from your IRA to the Center. Individuals age 70 1/2 and older may contribute $1 to $100,000 per year directly from their IRA to the Northampton Survival Center and satisfy all or a portion of the required minimum distribution. Note: Gifts to charity from IRAs are not considered income thus are not eligible as an income tax deduction.
Make the Center a beneficiary of retirement assets-in full or for a percentage. Retirement assets pass to a charity tax free and are often the best asset for charitable donations, minimizing taxes to non-spouse heirs.
Make the Center a beneficiary of a life insurance policy – in full or for a percentage.
Make the Center a beneficiary of your will or trust – in full or for a percentage.
When naming the Northampton Survival Center as a beneficiary, please include our tax ID #04-2774166.
We are happy to give you more information about how to help us Feed the Future. Please contact Heidi Nortonsmith, Executive Director, with any questions.
