Ways to Give
When you make a gift to1921 Foundation, you have tremendous flexibility in determining how the funds will be used, as well as many options for making your gift.
Unrestricted gifts are among the most valuable to the Foundation because they allow us to allocate funds wherever the need is greatest, and to take advantage of unique opportunities as they arise. Your unrestricted contribution may be used to support costs associated with innovations in leadership training, advancement of education excellence and more.
Directed gifts allow you to designate your gift to a specific program or priority area at the Foundation. When you make a directed gift, you enjoy the satisfaction of knowing you are supporting a program that is personally meaningful to you.
You also have the option of designating your gift for current use or for endowment. Current-use gifts provide funds and flexibility over the short term, whereas endowment gifts provide security over the long term by expanding the Foundation’s permanent financial base and creating a predictable source of future income for initiatives including leadership programs, student scholarships, heritage projects and crisis assistance. Gifts toward endowment are invested by the Foundation, and the income from the gift is directed toward an intended purpose as designated by the donor. Only the income from the principal is expended in accordance with the Foundation’s Gift Policy so that the gift continues in perpetuity, helping to safeguard against changing economic climates.
All contributions made to the Foundation are tax-deductible in the United States to the full extent allowed by law.
