Donate to the Foundation
The Associated General Contractors Oregon Columbia Chapter (AGC) Foundation is a non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to carrying out charitable purposes related to construction industry promotion, education, training, and relief efforts in Oregon and southwest Washington. Grants awarded by the foundation support projects and activities designed to enrich the construction industry by improving its workforce, families, communities, and institutions.
The AGC Foundation accepts contributions from individuals and companies. And since the foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization, contributions are tax deductible.
The foundation also provides a vehicle for AGC members to make targeted contributions to both construction and non-construction related causes consistent with the 501(c)(3) status of the organization.
Types of Contributions
You may contribute cash in any amount to the foundation by making a check payable to the AGC Foundation.
Gifts of Stock
One way to share your good fortune is by making a gift of appreciated stock. Your gift of stocks can provide a financially attractive alternative to cash contributions due to favorable income tax and capital gains tax treatment.
One of the simplest and most popular means of charitable giving is a specific bequest in a will. Tax laws allow an unlimited estate tax charitable deduction for gifts to qualified charitable organizations such as the AGC Foundation. With estate tax rates as high as 55% or more, it is important to review your estate plan to insure proper disposition of your assets.
Other contributions also qualify.
An application must be completed for consideration of grant funding. Refer to grant application and guidelines for complete details.
