HOW TO GIVE

Please join us by giving to this important project. Your donations to the campaign may be tax deductible. In addition to an immediate cash donation, we can accept a pledge for a future amount given in cash. This may include a multiple-year commitment with the first commitment often coming at the time of the pledge. Pledges are typically payable over a period of three-to-five years.

Gifts to the Friends of the Goss capital campaign may also include stocks, bonds, CDs, mutual funds or IRA rollovers. Donors may also make gifts of real estate such as land or a home. Gifts of such items that have an appreciated value may offer some significant tax advantages, such as avoiding capital gains tax and other benefits.

Making a gift through your estate plan is also an option. A “planned gift” may be as simple as a bequest in a will and is an important tool for donors considering a future gift to the Friends of the Goss. A planned gift could also be a sophisticated estate plan that provides the donor with tax and income benefits now.

Please contact our Executive Director, Missy Sinner (info@thegossoperahouse.com or 605-868-1556) for more information about how you can support the Friends of the Goss. Foundation tax identification number: 82-1384455
