2009 Year-End Charitable Contributions
In this season of giving, as you think about year-end tax planning, we
hope you will consider taking advantage of the income tax deduction for
charitable donations. Your 2009 year-end gift can reduce your
income tax obligation, while providing support for the Hudson Valley
Community College Foundation.
Your year-end gift to the Annual Fund will allow the Hudson Valley Community College
Foundation to provide student scholarships, enhance academic programming,
purchase laboratory equipment and fund campus infrastructure needs.
If your envelope is postmarked
by December 31,
2009, your donation will qualify as a 2009 gift, even if
it is not received and processed by us until the first week of 2010.
Gifts of cash are fully deductible up to a maximum of 50 percent of
your adjusted gross income.
If you own stock, you may want to consider making a contribution of stock
to the Hudson Valley Community College Foundation. A gift of
appreciated stock that you have owned for one year or more generally
offers a two-fold savings. First, you avoid the capital gains tax on the
increased value of the stock. Second, you gain the income tax
charitable deduction for the full market value of the stock at the time
of the gift. Your gift of stock should also be postmarked by December 31.
Gifts of stock are fully deductible up to a maximum of 30 percent of your
adjusted gross income.
Giving, of course, is about more than tax deductions. Your Annual Fund
commitment will help strengthen the reputation for which the college is
nationally recognized. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to truly make a
difference in the lives of our region’s future leaders and decision
makers. Your charitable gifts make a difference in what we can
accomplish here at Hudson
Valley Community College.
Thank you to those who have already made a contribution to the 2009-2010
Annual Fund. We appreciate your support of the college’s mission to
provide dynamic, student-centered, comprehensive and accessible
educational opportunities that address the diverse needs of the
