End of Year Giving

The Season of Giving

Planning For Your End of Year Giving

Foundation For The Carolinas extends our deepest appreciation to our clients, partners and friends during this season of giving. Now is an excellent time to leverage charitable tax benefits before the end of the year, while supporting the causes you value most. We hope you will consider making a gift to your fund or establishing a new charitable gift fund today.

FFTC offers a number of fund options to meet your philanthropic needs, such as donor advised funds, field of interest funds and community impact funds. We accept an exceptionally wide variety of assets, such as stock, real property, and closely held business interests.

To learn more about how we can help you achieve your charitable goals, please contact our Philanthropic Advancement team at 704.998.6412 or philanthropy@fftc.org.

*Please note: Since the passage of the Patriot Act in 2001, financial institutions are limited in the information they can provide to us regarding the origination of transferred securities. As a result, it is important that you or your financial advisor notify our Donor Relations team when you are planning to transfer securities to a fund held at FFTC or its subsidiary foundations.

If you are planning to make a gift of securities, please contact us at 704.973.4529 or donorrelations@fftc.org so we can promptly and accurately acknowledge the donation.
