A winning proposition: the agency benefits from the gift while the donor
receives a tax deduction and avoids appreciation taxes.
There are many ways corporations and foundations can help SGA:
restricted program grants, operating contributions, corporate sponsorships
and in-kind contributions, to name a few. We also work closely with private
donors to create programs that meet the pressing needs of youths, their
families and communities.
Please contact Tyler St. Peter TStPeter@sga-youth.org, Manager of Foundations and Corporations, to learn more about corporate/foundation giving opportunities.
Each spring, SGA holds a major fund raising event to benefit the

Beneficiary of IRA, Insurance Policy Pension
Name SGA as the end-of-life beneficiary of
your retirement account, life insurance policy or pension. Your designation
of SGA as beneficiary of an IRA, for example, will eliminate not only
potential estate taxes, but also the adverse income taxes your family
members or other beneficiaries would have to pay.
Make a one-time or planned gift to SGA's endowment. Your gift ensures
the future of the agency, and interest each year aids agency operations.

benefit during your lifetime and SGA benefits upon your death.
