Every Gift is a Major Gift
It lets us know we're getting it right
Our support for the community and providing services for the valleys' people is our mission and purpose. We do this without expectation, yet with the hope that as our neighbors can afford to, they will support our work out of their appreciation for what we do and provide. No gift of support is so small as to be unimportant to us and none so large that it overshadows our judgement or our mission. Every donation is a testament to our success and a reminder of our responsibility and the trust that the community places in us.
We invite you to support us as you are able, whether it be through volunteerism, membership, donations or planned giving. To find out how you can partner with us to sustain our work and guarantee its future, please use the Donate or Membership links on this page to make a secure pledge or gift. If you are interested in planned giving opportunities please contact our Executive Director.
Courageous and insightful people leave a great heritage to our community when they secure, preserve and increase the resources of the Sautee Nacoochee Center. The majority of our support comes from member contributions and dues, and all of it is voluntary. The Center is a non-profit organization set up exclusively to promote the visual and performing arts, environmental stewardship, and community history, We must raise sufficient funds to ensure our ongoing operations and maintain the facilities.
Opportunities for Planned Giving
Bequest by Will - This can be as simple as adding a codicil to your will in the form of a specific amount, a percentage or
some portion of your residual estate. A charitable bequest enables you to support the good work of an organization with which you
volunteer for long after you are gone.
Life Insurance - You can donate a policy you no longer need, take out a new policy, or name the Center as a beneficiary of an existing policy.
Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) - You can name the Center as a beneficiary of a tax deferred retirement plan or make required minimum distributions (RMD's) directly to the Center.
Charitable Remainder Trusts and Gift Annuities - Create a trust or annuity that will ultimately benefit of the Center while you retain life long income.
Stock or Other Appreciated Property - You can donate shares of appreciated stock or other property, thereby giving you a charitable deduction, elimination of capital gains and a reduction of estate taxes.
Gifts in Cash to an Endowment Fund - Cash is always welcome. Please remember that you will help the Center more by meeting your annual giving commitments before giving cash to an Endowment Fund.
