If you have a passion for helping seniors and would like to know more about how you can support 50 North through a charitable gift of any size or from any source, contact us today!We are a local, nonprofit 501(c)3 organization; approximately 60% of our operating budget is funded by tax dollars. As the senior population grows in our county, your gift helps ensure that individuals 50+ receive the services they need to enrich their lives and remain living safely in their own homes.
Your annual gift makes a vital impact by helping provide us with resources that can be designated in the areas of Greatest Need, Chore Services, Housekeeping, Outreach Services, Fitness/Wellness, Activities, Café, and Mobile Meals.
This year, our Area of Greatest Need is the building that shelters all of our services. By investing in the much-needed renovation and expansion of our facilities, you are supporting our vital services to older adults now and far into the future.
Through gift planning, you can complete a lifetime of giving or make a significant gift that will be a wise tax investment for your future. Your gift will have an impact far beyond your lifetime. There are many ways to plan these gifts:
Be sure to consult your tax advisor to investigate how a charitable donation might affect your personal tax situation. For more information about bequests, contact Tracy McMath: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Giving to the 50 North Capital Campaign helps meet the needs of the growing senior population in Hancock County. You may pledge to give over one, three, or five years by filling out our pledge card and returning it to our address listed on the form.

" A gift from your IRA, 401k, 403b, pension, or other tax-deferred plan is an excellent way to make a gift. By making a donation to 50 North, you will impact the lives of older adults now and into the future. Please consider making a gift of your unused retirement assets to further 50 North’s mission of enriching lives and supporting independence."

"When you donate appreciated securities to 50 North, you can take a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the security as of the date of your gift. Choosing securities that have the lowest cost basis and the highest capital gain makes the most tax sense. You pay no capital gains tax on your gift, nor does 50 North, because 50 North is a 501(c) 3 tax-exempt organization. Transferring securities from your brokerage account is not complicated. Donating long-term appreciated securities makes tax sense."
