LCP is a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization. Donations are generally tax deductible. Our aging building requires updating which puts a strain on the budget.

Qualified Charitable Distribution from your IRA
If you are required to take Required Minimum Distributions from your IRA accounts, consider a Qualified Charitable Distribution. A QCD is a donation from your IRA directly to your favorite charity (The Little Colonel Players). The amount counts towards your RMD for the year, but is NOT included in your taxable income, like normal RMD’s. It’s a great tool for saving on taxes and supporting LCP at the same time. Contact your IRA administrator for details on how you can use this tax saving tool to support LCP.
Donate stock or mutual funds shares directly to Little Colonel.
Instead of selling your non-cash assets like stock and mutual fund shares and donating the after-tax proceeds, it may be advantageous to donate these assets directly to The Little Colonel Players. You’ll get two significant benefits, as long as you’ve owned the assets for more than a year. You’ll generally be eligible to claim a tax deduction in the amount of the full fair market value, and neither you nor the charity will pay any taxes on the gain. Because of this, you will be able to give as much as 20 percent more to The Little Colonel Players than had you sold the asset and donated the after-tax proceeds. You also can donate stock that has significantly appreciated, and then buy more of the same stock, essentially “resetting” the cost basis at a higher amount.

Designate LCP as one of your beneficiaries in your retirement accounts
