Cash, Securities and Matching Gifts

Gifts of Cash

A majority of the gifts made to NCAS/UCN come in the form of cash, via check, credit card, or wire transfer. A gift of cash entitles you to the most generous federal income tax deduction available for charitable contributions. You may deduct up to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income for gifts of cash and may carry any amount over that figure forward for up to five additional years.
