This holiday season, make a gift that will last forever
As the holidays approach, consider the benefits of giving your loved ones a gift that can’t be broken, stored away, or quickly consumed. Celebrate the joy of the season with a gift in their name to Bath Community Fund.
A gift to Bath Community Fund is the perfect way to honor a friend, family member, or colleague while making a lasting difference in the community you live in and love.
Recipients will receive an acknowledgment card letting them know of your gift, and you will become part of a community-wide legacy that will live on long after all of us are gone.
Bath Community Fund can accept gifts of all kinds, including appreciated and closely held stock. If you own stock with unrealized losses, consider using tax-loss harvesting to turn the loss into a win for both your portfolio and for Bath Community Fund. By selling the stock at a loss and donating the proceeds to BCF, you can offset other realized capital gains and reduce your overall tax burden.

Gifts for this tax year can be made online with a credit card until 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 31 at www.akroncf.org/give/BCF.
