CASH GIFTS

The simplest and easiest gift you can make, cash gifts can be made by credit card online or by personal check made payable to Early Music America. PLEASE MAIL YOUR DONATION TO: Early Music America 801 Vinial Street, Suite 300 Pittsburgh, PA 15212

RECURRING GIFTS & PLEDGES

Recurring gifts or pledges can help sustain your impact through regular and consistent contributions. Gift pledges are formal statements of intention to make a gift. With a pledge, you may complete your gift by making regular payments over time. Each payment on your pledge is eligible for an income-tax deduction.

ENDOWED GIFTS

Endowed gifts are invested by Early Music America to generate income in perpetuity, providing you with an opportunity to make a lasting impact. An endowed gift can be established with a minimum contribution of $25,000. It can be directed toward one of Early Music America’s existing programs, toward supporting ongoing operating needs, or toward establishing a new named scholarship or grant.

Gifts of Securities, Stocks & Bonds

Gifts of appreciated securities, stocks and bonds provide considerable tax advantages when transferred to Early Music America before they are sold.

PROCESS
  • You transfer appreciated stocks, mutual funds, or bonds you have owned for more than one year to Early Music America.
  • Early Music America sells your securities and uses the proceeds for its programs.
WHY GIVE STOCK GIFTS?
  • You receive an immediate income tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer, no matter what you originally paid for them.
  • You pay no capital gains tax when the stock is sold, so a gift of appreciated stock could be more advantageous to you than a gift of cash.
