Tax Advantages
A cash gift enables you to receive the most generous federal income tax charitable deduction up to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income.  If all deductible gifts in a single year exceed the 50 percent limit, the excess amount may be carried over as a deduction for up to five years.

Gifts "in memory of" or "in honor of"
You can make a gift in memory or in honor of a friend or loved one.  Teachers College will inform the individual or their family about your gift and how it will benefit the Peace Corps Fellows Program community.

Matching Gifts
If you or your spouse work for a company that makes corporate matching gifts, your contribution to TC can be doubled or even tripled. Contact your human resources office to find out if they take part in a matching gift program.
