Other ways you can contribute are:

Volunteering
If you are short of money, but still want to contribute, Kepler can always use volunteers to help with the newsletter, marketing and other tasks.

Appreciated Securities
Any gift of appreciated securities, including mutual funds, which you have owned for at least one year can be donated to Kepler College without incurring capital gains tax. The deduction is the fair market value of the stock on the day you make the gift. Such gifts are fully deductible up to 30% of your adjusted gross income; any excess can be carried over for five additional years.

Bequests
Another planned gift opportunity is naming Kepler College in your will or living trust. Contributing to the College through a bequest is a wonderful way to support our programs and services while, at the same time, reducing your estate taxes.

Life Insurance
By naming Kepler College as owner and irrevocable beneficiary, you can contribute an existing or newly purchased life insurance policy and receive a tax deduction for a portion of your gift. Additional deductions can be taken by making gifts to cover the cost of premiums. Alternatively, you may wish to name Kepler College as a contingent beneficiary, to receive the proceeds if the primary beneficiary predeceases you. If proceeds come to the College, your estate will receive an estate tax deduction for the gift.

Getting The Most From Your Retirement Plan
If you are required to withdraw more than you need from your retirement plan this year, you may wish to give the excess amount to the Kepler College. By doing so you will be entitled to a tax deduction, which will partially offset the tax you owe on the withdrawal.

Please contact us if you would like to donate via any of the above options.
