Matching Gifts
Many companies will match gifts to the Alexander-Tharpe Fund and this form of support will also increase both your contribution to the A-T Fund and your priority points. A-T recognizes the total contribution, including the matching gift and original gift, as soon as it is received.

Bequests and IRA Designations
Bequests and IRA designations can provide benefits and permanent name recognition with endowed scholarships. Both of these methods of support can be made in specific amounts, percentages of estates, or residual amounts.

Life Income and Trusts
Charitable trusts offer an opportunity to make a substantial gift to A-T without giving up the annual income produced by these assets. The donor retains income for life and the life of his or her spouse. A-T will provide credit for a percentage of this trust immediately. This gift can also be structured to create a substantial tax break over a period of years. If the gift meets or exceeds $250,000, an endowed scholarship can be created in memory or honor of the person of choice.

Real Estate
Substantial tax benefits also exist for gifts of real estate which are subject to acceptance by the Alexander-Tharpe Fund The donor will receive credit for the appraised value of the property. Charitable trusts established with gifts of real estate are popular methods of creating life income with tax benefits.
