Make a Donation

Gifts of appreciated stock made directly to Art Encounter provide dual tax benefits: donors avoid paying taxes on the capital gains, and the full value of the donation can be written off on taxes if the donor has owned the asset for more than one year. To discuss making a gift of stock to Art Encounter, please contact Executive Director Lea Pinsky at lea@artencounter.org or 847-328-9222.

Are you 70.5 years or older? Required distributions from your IRA or 401K are 100 percent taxable and can create an additional tax on your Society Security benefits, even if you give the money away after you receive it.  The good news is that if you redirect this distribution to Art Encounter, you will forego the taxes!  If you’d like to make a direct charitable distribution from your IRA to Art Encounter, please contact Executive Director Lea Pinsky at lea@artencounter.org or 847-328-9222.
