Your Gift to the Quad Cities Cultural Trust

Your Gift to the Quad Cities Cultural Trust

The creation of QCCT a decade ago was unique in the country.  Many communities would love to have a dedicated resource to undergird the operations of their premier cultural organizations.  QCCT leaders built such a fund. 

The combined donations in QCCT endow the organizations at a robust and sustainable level.

By funding their diverse operational needs, we free them to innovate and create.

Together, QCCT donors reach a potential that none could achieve alone.

Become a vital part of one of the most powerful and important funding entities in the region ... and endow its arts and culture with the capacity to grow and thrive for the benefit of all our citizens. Make a difference that lasts forever.

In addition to our $21 Million trust fund, QCCT has established an endowed fund at Community Foundation of the Great River Bend. Donations through the Community Foundation are eligible for the Endow Iowa Tax Credit. Read the story of our partnership with CFGRB here.

Ways to Give

There are many ways to give to the Quad Cities Cultural Trust.  Any gift is tailored to the wishes of the donor.  Here are a few:

Gifts of Stocks and Bonds

A gift of your securities, including your stocks or bonds, is an easy way for you to make a gift. By making a gift of your appreciated securities, you can avoid paying capital gains tax that would otherwise be due if you sold these assets.

Gifts of Real Estate

A gift of your real property (such as your home, vacation property, vacant land, farmland or ranch or commercial property) can make a great gift. If you own appreciated real property, you can avoid paying capital gains tax by making a gift to us.

Gifts of Retirement Assets

A gift of your retirement assets, such as a gift from your IRA, 401k, 403b, pension or other tax deferred plan, is an excellent way to make a gift. By making a gift of your retirement assets, you will help further our work.

Gifts of Cash

A gift of cash is a simple and easy way for you to make a gift. You will receive a charitable tax deduction that will provide you with savings on this year's tax return.

Gift of Insurance

A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a gift to us. If your life insurance policy is no longer needed or will no longer benefit your survivors consider making a gift and help further our mission.

Gift of Business

As a business owner, you have the opportunity not only to build your business (and wealth) for yourself and your family, but also to accomplish your philanthropic goals through charitable planning.
