Legacy Planning and Large Gifts

Benefits of Legacies and Large Gifts

  • Help secure TAA’s ability to carry on its work for generations to come
  • Leave a lasting legacy, and ‘pay forward’ the TAA values you have benefited from over your writing career
  • Support TAA advocacy on behalf of authors, giving authors a more prominent voice with publishers and policymakers
  • Join with TAA’s founders and past supporters to strengthen the writing profession and disseminate the highest standards for authoring and educational excellence
  • Earn tax benefits on your current earnings or reduce taxes on your estate


Every gift of any size to TAA is greatly appreciated. Large gifts and legacy contributions can make a very substantial difference in TAA’s long-term planning, its sustainability, and the breadth of its services. Since TAA is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, you can also earn tax benefits with your gift, though you should, of course, consult with your own accountants and financial advisors to ensure the applicability of your gift to your particular circumstances.

Large gifts can be made in a variety of ways, and may be one-time or recurring donations:

  • Cash contributions
  • Stock transfers
  • In your will, as a percentage of, or a specific dollar amount from, your estate
  • Through a trust, as part of your legacy planning
  • As a contribution of a portion of your ongoing royalties
  • Through a matching program with your employer
  • Corporate giving is also welcome

TAA will work with you to provide the documentation needed for your records, and to answer any questions you or your advisors may have.

Contact Michael Spinella, TAA Executive Director, to discuss giving. You can reach him at 973-943-0501, or by email at [email protected]. Or fill out the Legacy Contributions and Large Gift Contact Form if you would like us to contact you.

FAQ

Is there a minimum or suggested contribution?

Gifts of any size are welcome and appreciated by TAA. For gifts under $1,000, please use the convenient online contribution form here.

Large Gifts are typically for $1,000 or more, and are provided one-time or on an ongoing periodic basis.

Legacy Contributions are typically for $5,000 or more, and are a part of your estate planning.

I want to transfer stock to TAA. How will the value be determined for purposes of tax credits?

TAA will promptly sell any stock you transfer to our name, and provide you with a statement of the sales price. This establishes the reportable value of your donation.

Is it possible to give a donation for a designated purpose within TAA, and if so, how do I do that?

Yes, it is possible to designate funds for a particular use. In order to do that, contact Michael Spinella at [email protected] or call him at 973-943-0501.

Can I set up a recurring gift and if so, how?

Yes. We do not have an automated system for recurring gifts, but we can process them manually. To establish a recurring gift, please contact Michael Spinella at [email protected] or call him at 973-943-0501. We can handle frequencies of monthly, quarterly, or yearly, and we ask that each increment be no less than $250. You will sign an authorization form for us to charge a credit card. The form will state the frequency of charges, the amount of each increment, and, if you desire, a total gift maximum or a stop date.
