Corporate Support helps fund HCOA programs and operations. There are a number of sponsorship opportunities that support great programs, and may be tailored to fit corporate values or focus. Contact Executive Director Scott Bartlett to learn more about corporate sponsorship.
Planned Giving can be an effective way to meet your financial goals and save taxes, while supporting art, artists, and the cultural diversity of our communities. Planned gifts could be directed to HCOA, or to our endowed fund, managed by The Homer Foundation. The most common types of planned gifts are:
- Bequests, as a fixed amount or percentage of your estate.
- Appreciated Assets, in the form of donated stocks, bonds, or real estate, which can help you avoid capital gains taxes on these items.
- Life Insurance (when your policies are no longer critical to your family’s well-being they can support HCOA).
- Retirement plans, including tax-deferred IRA and 401K plans. Naming HCOA as a beneficiary may reduce your taxes and allow you to leave other assets to heirs.
If you are interested in any of these options, we encourage you to talk to your family and financial advisor.
