Your gift today will help Fung Loy Kok support health and well-being in our communities. The many stories of people whose lives have been deeply transformed through the practice of the Taoist Tai Chi® arts are compelling: stories of increased mobility and reduced pain, stories of strength and flexibility, stories of calm, clarity and connection with others.
As participants in our community discover these benefits in their own lives, they also naturally find ways to improve their relationships with their families, friends and communities. In fact, the benefits of this practice extend even more widely as practitioners discover they rely less on the medical system, helping to reduce health care costs. By volunteering, making donations, or helping in any way that you can, you can support this powerful and important work for generations to come.
The Taoist Tai Chi Society is an organization of extraordinary interactions. It’s a setting where people come together to share the tremendous benefits of the Taoist Tai Chi ® arts.
These extraordinary interactions need a strong financial foundation. We rely on the support of our participants as we work to carry out the many projects that further the Society’s aims and objectives.
Cash, Check or Credit Card
The Society strives to make it as easy as possible for donors to make contributions.
Donations of a credit card, cash and checks are accepted at most locations. Check with a location near you for further details.
Double or even triple your gift to the Society. More than eight thousand companies offer varying levels of corporate matching gifts for their employees’ philanthropic interests.
Contact your company’s personnel or human resources office to see if your current employer, the company from which you retired, or your spouse’s employer, has a matching gift program. When an employee makes a charitable contribution, the company matches the donation and forwards the check to the Society directly.
Gifts of Securities
Securities are a great vehicle, as donors most often avoid capital gains tax and may be able to claim an income tax deduction as well. For more information about gifts of securities, call the Society office, toll free, at (888) 668-6063.
Gifts in Memoriam
Make a gift in memoriam for someone who has passed away.
Gifts in Celebration
Make a gift to celebrate someone’s birthday, anniversary, graduation or another meaningful special occasion.
Gifts in Honour
Make a gift to honour someone who has received a prize or other recognition.
A deferred, or planned, gift is an excellent way to both meet your estate planning goals and have a significant and lasting effect on the Society’s work.
Individual donors can provide for the Society as part of their estate planning. Each of these methods is a means to make a substantial contribution, without requiring a substantial income. These methods of giving may afford the donor a number of tax savings and income possibilities as well.
Will or Bequest
There are several ways to make a bequest. You can leave the Society a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or the residue (or portion of the residue) of the estate after you have provided for those close to you. The Taoist Tai Chi Society of the USA may be named a contingent beneficiary in your will – meaning that the Society will receive money only if the other beneficiaries in your will die before you. You may name the Society as the beneficiary of the assets of a trust transferable to the Society at the death of the beneficiary. Bequests are added to the Society’s general operating budget unless otherwise specified in the will.
Insurance or Retirement Plan
Naming the Taoist Tai Chi Society in your country as a beneficiary to a life insurance policy or retirement plan, such as 401(k), 403 (b), IRA, SEP, is an easy way to make a gift without sacrificing any benefits to you in your lifetime. In the case of a retirement plan, naming a nonprofit beneficiary can sometimes prevent certain taxes from being assessed.
Donor Advised Fund
A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is a type of giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support your favorite charities. Increasingly popular charitable vehicles, DAFs are an excellent way to both simplify your charitable giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals. The Society could be designated as one of your charities of choice through a DAF.
Working Together, we can continue to share the tremendous health benefits of the Taoist Tai Chi ® arts with future generations.
Your generosity defines our tradition of compassionate community service which is made possible by your donations and gifts. Thank you for contributing!
