San Joaquin Delta College Scholarship Foundation

Administration 201
(209) 954-5040

Tax Benefits Of Giving - The Scholarship Foundation is a tax-exempt organization which qualifies under Internal Revenue Code Section 501 (c)(3) and related sections for maximum income and estate tax benefits for individuals who make gifts of appreciated property or cash to the Foundation.

Lifetime Gifts - Donors who make contributions to the Foundation during life are eligible for income tax deductions during the year in which the contribution is made to the maximum extent allowed by law. Donors who choose to make gifts of appreciated assets (subject to approval and acceptance by the Foundation's governing board) are eligible to take an income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the asset and avoid the capital gains tax that would have accrued had the donor sold the asset. (The amount of the forgiven capital gain still may be subject to alternative minimum tax, however.)

Testamentary Bequests - Donors who choose to remember the Foundation at death through testamentary gifts may benefit from a full deduction against the federal estate tax. Generally, the federal estate tax applies to the estates of individuals having more than $1,000,000 of assets. The effective marginal tax rates may vary considerably and can be quite larger under certain circumstances. A testamentary gift to a tax-qualified charity such as the Scholarship Foundation can reduce or even eliminate federal death tax.

Split Gifts - More sophisticated techniques are available to donors who wish to combine both types of tax deductions (i.e., income and estate taxes) through what are known as "split interest" charitable gifts. A charitable remainder trust, for example, allows a donor to transfer cash or property to a trust for a term of years or for life, retaining the right to the income produced from the trust for that interval, after which time the trust principal passes to the charity. If properly structured, the trust affords the donor an income tax deduction at the time the initial transfer is made and removes the value of the trust principal from the donor's estate for death tax purposes.

A charitable lead trust, on the other hand, reverses the process by directing the income produced by the trust to the charity and, after the designated interval, returns the trust principal to the donor or the donor's family or other designated recipients.
