Support the Endowment

Partnering with Tama County Community Foundation

The Pilgrim Heights Camp & Retreat Center has chosen to set up an endowment fund with the Tama County Community Foundation, an affiliate of the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa, to ensure the long term financial support an endowment provides. Because only the income earned from the fund is distributed each year, the principal will remain and grow for years to come.

25% State Tax Credit

Gifts to this fund are eligible to receive a 25% state tax credit in addition to the normal federal deductions for charitable giving through the Endow Iowa State Tax Credit Program. After a gift is made to the Fund, the Community Foundation staff will automatically mail a tax credit application for gifts of $250 or more. Gifts less than $250 can still receive the tax credit,  but will need to request an application. 

Ways to Give to the Endowment

There are many different giving options available:
** Cash ** Gifts of Grain ** Real Estate ** Charitable Gift Annuities ** Charitable Trusts ** Bequests ** Life Insurance ** Appreciated Securities ** Retirement Plans

Consider a special IRA Rollover for individuals 70 ½ or older for up to $100,000 without incurring income taxes today or estate and income taxes in the  future.
