To Give To The USSC Foundation
a bequest to the Foundation in your Will or Living Trust.
This can be in any monetary amount, or in the form of
stocks, bonds, or other negotiable instruments. Your
existing Will can be modified without completely redrafting
the document. Please contact the USSC Foundation offices
for a copy of a sample Will Codicil.
Gift: Make a gift to the foundation and receive
a current year charitable tax deduction to the full
extent allowed by law. Gifts can be cash (checks only
please), appreciated stock, or property.
Gift: Some employers have a program where they
will match individual employee gifts to charitable
organizations. If you work for such a company, or your
spouse does, you can donate to the USSC Foundation
and designate that the matching gift be made to the
Foundation as well.
in Kind: You can make a gift "in kind" when
you have qualified excess inventory or stock. This
is particularly advantageous for materials that are
difficult to dispose of, or materials of very low value
on a secondary market. For example, suppose your company
has 1000 widgets that are last year's model. Instead
of selling the widgets yourself, if that is even possible,
and receiving pennies on the dollar, you can donate
the widgets to the USSC Foundation and receive a fair
market value tax deduction. The tax benefit may be
more valuable than the pennies you would receive for
the outright sale. The Foundation will use the services
of a liquidator and receive the cash for the sale of
the widgets. This procedure can also be applied to
trucks, cars, boats, and machinery. Please contact
the Foundation offices if you would like to participate.
Beneficiary: You may designate the United States
Sign Council Foundation Inc. as the beneficiary of
a life insurance policy, IRA, 401K Plan, Keough Plan,
or any other type of retirement/savings instrument.
In addition you may designate the Foundation in any
existing or new trust or annuity.
the death of a loved one, you may request that in lieu
of flowers gifts be made "in memoriam" to the
United States Sign Council Foundation, Inc. You should
include the full name and our address in any request.
The Foundation will, in turn, send an acknowledgment
and thank you to those who make a memorial donation and
will also provide a list to the family for your own personal
