Individual Donations

Please select one of the options below to support The Spaatz Association.

General Donation

The motto of  The Spaatz Association is that we “Lead the Legacy. . .”  One of the surest ways Spaatzen can insure the continued success of the Association is to “Leave A Legacy. . .”  There are several ways this can be done:

Online Donation – The easiest way to donate any amount to The Spaatz Association is online!  Click the online link to visit our PayPal general donation page.  We can accept up to $10,000 online, and you can print a receipt directly from your computer.

Cash/Checks –  The Spaatz Association will furnish a letter of receipt for donations of more than $250.00 to document your tax return.  You can mail your donation to:

The Spaatz Association, Inc.
c/o National Treasurer
12381 Ridge Circle
Los Angeles, California  90049

Electronic Funds Transfer – The Spaatz Association can also supply routing and account numbers for the fast and efficient wire-transfer of your generous donation.   For more information on electronic funds transfer, please contact us.

Invoicing –  The Spaatz Association can send an invoice to your company in the amount and at the frequency you specify. Some companies prefer a monthly, quarterly or annual invoicing for budgetary reasons.  TSA will furnish a W-9 document with our federal EIN and mailing address for your accounting office.  TSA will also be happy to furnish a copy of the IRS letter confirming our 501(c)3 tax-exempt status.  For more information on corporate invoicing, please contact us.

Stock Transfer – Important capital gains advantages can benefit donors using this method.  The donor’s tax deduction for stock transferred directly to the Association’s brokerage account is calculated at the full market value at the time of transfer.  Rather than sell shares of stock and pay capital gains, the direct donation of stock bypasses the capital gains burden. For more information on stock transfer, please contact us.

In-Kind Donations –  The Spaatz Association is not presently established to handle in-kind donations except on a case-by-case basis.  To discuss your specific in-kind donation circumstances, please contact us.

Endowments

Endowments are a great way to invest into The Spaatz Association.  An endowment is a fund made up of a financial gift that can earn income to support a specific interest or activity within the organization (such as Aerospace Leadership Scholarships, other specific scholarships, cadet programs, etc.).  For more information on how you can set up an endowment, please contact us.

Bequest

You may also make a gift to The Spaatz Association in your will or living trust.   This bequest creates an enduring fund that lasts and lasts, and you have the knowledge that your legacy will make a crucial difference in the development of America’s future aerospace leaders. Your gift to The Spaatz Association can be a cash donation, a percentage of the remainder of your estate, or stocks or property.  For more information on bequests, including sample language for specific, residuary, and contingent bequests, download our Legacy Programs brochure.

Proof of Tax Status:  We will gladly furnish a copy of the IRS letter confirming our 501(c)3 tax-exempt status upon request.  Contact the National Treasurer for more information.
