Have you contributed to a donor-advised fund (DAF) to allow you to manage your charitable contributions from one account? You can make a gift from your DAF to the HACC Foundation to support HACC, Central Pennsylvania's Community College. Please contact your DAF advisor to direct your contribution to:

HACC Foundation
PO Box 8915
Lancaster, PA 17604-9966

You should receive acknowledgement letters – for tax purposes – from your DAF advisor when you contribute to your fund. Therefore, when the HACC Foundation receives contributions from your DAF, you will receive letters of gratitude from the HACC Foundation.

Is appreciated stock a part of your gift portfolio? Please consider the potential tax benefits of donating your long-term appreciated stock (pdf)  to the HACC Foundation. Appreciated stocks or securities are investments that have increased in value from the time they were purchased.

Appreciated stock has the potential to be a more efficient tax benefit than cash gifts by helping you to reduce capital gains taxes.

Generous individuals have donated works of art, books, equipment and other gifts of personal property to the College, depending, of course, on whether there is need for such items. If the College chooses to accept an item, the item's appraised value will be your tax deduction. Please complete and submit this form (pdf) to donate your items.

Charitable gift planning allows you to support causes that matter to you – into the future.

Thank you!

You can designate the HACC Foundation as a beneficiary of a portion of your retirement funds. If you decide to make such a generous gift, be sure to list the HACC Foundation with the administrator or person in charge of your IRA, profit-sharing account or other retirement plan. We value all contributions greatly.

HACC employees have the unique opportunity to contribute funds that directly impact students and programs at HACC through payroll deduction(pdf)! Your support will continue to provide opportunities for our students to earn a top-quality education using the best available technology and equipment.

 

 

Potential Tax and Income Benefits of Giving

Donors to the HACC Foundation may experience tax and income benefits. For example:

  • Charitable deductions could provide an income savings for the value of the gift dependent on the donor's tax rate.
  • Donors may reduce capital gains on securities and/or property gifts.
  • Federal estate tax is eliminated on the value of a gift made via a will or revocable trust.
