Remember Your 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 community.
