The First Tee of the Triangle is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization. All gifts (both financial and in-kind) are tax deductible and very much appreciated. We have numerous opportunities for contributing to our success. Whether large or small, your donation makes an impact on the lives of children in our area!

Stock Donation

You can give appreciated stock to The First Tee of the Triangle. If you have held it for more than one year you may take a charitable tax deduction for the market value of the stock, and neither you nor The First Tee has to pay capital-gains taxes when the stock is sold. The combination can result in a bigger deduction (and more tax savings) for you and a bigger gift for The First Tee and the kids we serve than if you sell the stock, pay the taxes, and donate the net proceeds. Contact our office at 919-239-8056 and we can provide our stock account information.

IRA Charitable Rollover

If you are at least 70½ years old by year’s end, you can have all or part of the distribution from an individual retirement account made directly to The First Tee of the Triangle (up to $100,000 per taxpayer per year). You will not get a charitable deduction, but you won’t owe income tax on the IRA distribution either. Please note, contributions to donor-advised funds don’t qualify.
