Frank Lloyd Wright’s life and career were never defined by the tragedies that befell him. Instead, he used challenges as a source of inspiration, striving always to do better, and to do more. By gaining wisdom from the obstacles life threw in his path, Wright demonstrated the determination from which his architectural legacy was built.
Today, the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation looks to the inspiration of its founder as we work to emerge from challenges created by the pandemic to be a better, stronger, and more impactful organization. You can help by providing a gift of support today. We recently refreshed our Vision and Mission Statements to highlight the impact that Wright wanted his Foundation to achieve:
In the words of Frank Lloyd Wright, “to make life more beautiful, the world a better one for living in, and to give reason, rhyme, and meaning to life.”
The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation inspires people to discover and embrace an architecture for better living through meaningful connections to nature, the arts, and each other.
WAYS TO GIVE AT YEAR’S END
CARES Act Incentives
While special incentives created as part of the CARES Act are still available through the end of the year, there are a number of ways to provide your support to the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation:
Universal charitable deduction for cash gifts up to $300: Available to all donors who take the Standard Deduction and considered an above-the-line deduction; you are able to share your support in a meaningful way and choose to take the Standard Deduction.
100% deductibility for all gifts of cash made by individuals in support of the Foundation in 2020: Normally your gifts are deductible up to 60% of your Adjusted Gross Income. However, the limit was raised in 2020. Benefit your taxes and your support for the Foundation by making a gift before the end of the year!
For donors who are eligible to receive a Required Minimum Distribution from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA): The law suspended the requirement to receive your Distribution in 2020. Consider how powerful it would be to direct a gift through your IRA as a Qualified Charitable Distribution now, early in 2021, or possibly as two gifts in 2021 – making up for the gift you might make in 2020, and again at the end of the year as your 2021 gift.
Gifts of Stock
Stock that has increased in value is one of the most popular assets used for charitable giving, once it has been held for a minimum of a year. Making a gift of securities offers you the chance to help the Foundation while realizing many important benefits for yourself. If you intend to make a gift of stock or cash wire transfer, please contact us at 602-800-5448 or firstname.lastname@example.org
In all ways, we are grateful for the generosity you share with us and the impact it has on our mission. Thank you for supporting the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.
