There are many ways to get involved and help support the International Corrugated Packaging Foundation's (ICPF) mission and initiatives. You can donate surplus CAD tables or corrugated testing equipment to ICPF for college use, serve as a speaker, advisor or mentor at one of ICPF's university partners, participate in an ICPF student dialogue dinner, become a corporate partner, serve as one of the rotating industry speakers at ICPF's annual, Careers in Corrugated Packaging & Display Teleconference, nominate a deserving executive to ICPF's Circle of Distinguished Leaders, participate or otherwise support ICPF's annual fundraising event, or directly donate to ICPF. All are tax deductible. It is through your help that ICPF continues to expand its outreach to educate and influence the career decisions of talented, upcoming graduates from ICPF's partner universities and colleges.
Gifts that Keep Giving You also can make a gift now that will help ICPF for decades to come. At the same time, you can benefit from a stream of income during your retirement years and to benefit your estate. Here are some examples:
Set up a Gift Annuity that will give you and your spouse guaranteed income for life and then give ICPF the appreciated asset.
Create a Unitrust to ensure lifetime income with inflation protection.
Use a Charitable Lead Trust to give ICPF annual income now and then return the total asset to your children or grandchildren when your estate is settled.
Make a gift of appreciated property (including stocks, bonds, mutual funds, art, real estate, collectibles) and get a tax deduction for the current market value of the asset (up to applicable IRS limits).
Name ICPF as the beneficiary of your IRA or 401K plan.
Transfer ownership of a life insurance policy to ICPF. Name the Foundation as the beneficiary. If the policy is paid in full, you get a proportional deduction. If there is an annual premium to be paid, you make a contribution to ICPF to pay the premium and you get the annual deduction for the dollar amount of the premium.
Add a codicil to your will to make a specific bequest to ICPF. You can choose a set dollar amount, one specific asset, or a percentage of the total asset.
