• Gifts of Cash: The CARES Act allows taxpayers who take the standard deduction to make up to $300 of charitable contributions to qualified charities. Itemizers can deduct up to 100% of adjusted gross income. As of now, this only applies to 2020.
• Stock or Securities: Make a gift of stock or securities to Agassiz Village and avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation of your stock. Please call Lisa Carter, Executive Director, at 781-860-0200 ext.1006 to make your stock gift.
• Individual Retirement Account: If you or a family member are 70½ or older with an individual retirement account (IRA), you can make a tax-free gift to Agassiz Village directly from your IRA. This is called a qualified charitable distribution. Through the SECURE Act you can transfer any amount up to $100,000 per year directly to a qualified charitable organization without paying income tax on the distribution.
• Donor-Advised Funds: Give through your donor-advised fund to maximize your impact. Your fund sponsor handles all record-keeping, disbursements, and tax receipts.
Social Emotional Learning (SEL) at AV
We are committed to continuously increasing the impact and quality of Agassiz Village camper experience through the implementation of SEL curriculum. SEL focuses on 5 key areas (or competencies): self-awareness, self-management, social-awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making.
At AV we define our goals for camper experience more clearly, create a defined structure for our behavioral management program, focus on individual learning and reflection, and gather data on camper experience and progress.
