East End Arts depends on your annual support to continue to provide leadership for the cultural development of the five East End towns and to celebrate and serve our diverse community of visual artists, musicians, poets, writers and theatrical performers – both emerging and accomplished – through exhibitions, performances, education, and events.
Honoraria or Memorial Gifts
Your 100% tax-deductible gift can be used to honor or memorialize a special person.
If your company has a matching gift program, your gift can be generously increased in support of our mission.
Your sustaining gift will provide East End Arts with income that we can count on each month.
Please contact the Development Office at 631-727-0900 x303 if you are interested in finding out more about our planned giving options, including bequests and living trusts, beneficiary designations and account designations from assets such as cash, appreciated securities, retirement plans, life insurance and real estate.
Gifts of appreciated securities can be particularly beneficial to both you and EEA. Long-term securities (those held more than a year) earn a deduction on their fair market value on the day of the gift. In addition, neither EEA nor the donor is subject to capital gains tax on those securities. Short-term securities earn a deduction on their original cost to you. Gifts of readily marketable securities will be credited at fair market value at the average of the high and low quoted selling price on the date the donor relinquishes control of the asset. We ask that donors making a gift of stock contact us before the transfer is made and use the form attached below, so that we may credit the donor properly.
