Donations made to the fund are invested in order to generate revenue for ACG year after year.

Depending on your philanthropic passions, you can specify how you would like your endowment gift to be used. ACG has a wide range of naming opportunities as well. Email us or call (512) 300-2247 to learn more.

Employer Gift Matching
Make your gift to ACG go even further! Many employers will match charitable contributions made by their employees, sometimes even doubling the initial gift. If you’re not sure whether or not your company has a matching program, check with your HR Department. They’ll also be able to guide you through the process. And let us know how we can help!

Gift & Estate Planning: The Legacy Circle

We are honored by friends who make the decision to support ACG through their will or a bequest, ensuring ACG will continue to thrive for years to come. A bequest can be made for a specific amount, for a percentage of your estate, or for a portion of what is left after you have made bequests to your family.

Please share with us news of your plans to include ACG in your planned giving so that we may recognize your support and include you in future Legacy Circle events.

Email us or call (512) 300-2247.

Gifts of Stock
Donating appreciated shares of stock can be beneficial – for you and ACG. You will receive an income tax deduction equal to the full market value of the stock at the time of transfer, as well as reduce or eliminate capital gains taxes. It’s a win-win!
Interested? We invite you or your financial advisor to contact us for transfer details or any questions. Email James Fidlon or call (512) 300-2247.

Qualified Charitable Distribution
If you are over 70 1/2 years old and have an IRA, you can lower the tax burden from your annual required minimum distribution by designating a gift to support ACG. You’ll pay no taxes on the amount you give.
There are some guidelines you’ll need to follow to when making a Qualified Charitable Distribution. Read more here, and speak with your financial advisor.
