Museum of Northern California Art Charitable Donations

Donation Ideas

  • Tax deductible contributions
    • If donors are in need of reduction in their taxes, they can directly contribute to the endowment by writing a check to Raymond James FBO MONCA
    • Checks can be mailed or dropped off to Raymond James, 250 Vallombrosa Ave., Suite 450, Chico, CA 95926
  • Donating Required Minimum Distributions
    • By donating an RMD, the donor will not realize the income associated with the distribution. This will help keep their current income level low, and potentially avoid being stepped into a higher tax bracket.
    • The donor can typically request a check be made out directly to Raymond James FBO MONCA (a signed letter of Acceptance will likely be required by IRA custodian).
  • Donating Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds
    • The endowment is able to accept a donation of stocks, bonds and/or mutual funds.
    • Benefit to donor is they have a low-cost basis in a taxable account, they can donate the holding without realizing the capital gain associated.

* Donors are strongly advised to speak with their tax professional prior to making donations that could potentially result in tax ramifications if done incorrectly.
