There are many other ways to support TCP. Please contact the Tellico Community Players directly if you are
interested in any of the following:
Many individuals request that survivors honor someone with a charitable gift in lieu of flowers. When you make a
memorial donation, we can provide memorial gift forms, send a receipt for your tax-deductible contribution, and
send an acknowledgment to the person/people requesting the memorial gift.
Legacy gifts (charitable gift planning) are an excellent tax and estate planning tool, and allow you to meet your
personal financial objectives while making a significant impact on the artistic and financial health of the Tellico
Community Players. Legacy gift options include:
Making a gift for the future of TCP costs you nothing now. Planned gifts can provide you with benefits such as an
immediate charitable income tax deduction (even though TCP may not receive the gift until a future date) or deferral
or avoidance of capital gains taxes on gifts.
Are you age 70 1/2 or older?
Consider a gift through your IRA required minimum distribution. The IRA Rollover Law has been permanently
extended - this means that you can make a direct distribution to the Tellico Community Players from your IRA
without paying income taxes on the contribution.
We strongly encourage you to consult with your attorney and financial and/or tax advisors for further information
and to draw up a plan that is specific to your interests and needs.
