How to contribute

We have opened two accounts to receive fundraising contributions toward our cause:

1. A local “restricted” savings account with Citizens Tri-County Bank. This account may receive contributions immediately and directly. There are no requirements for deposited funds except their application to the stated goal. The TTT is classified by the IRS as a 501(c)(7) non-taxable organization so, while dedicated contributions to a restricted account for a specific mission-related objective are non taxable to the TTT, they are not tax deductible for the donor.

2. An endowment or “targeted fund” account with the Foundation for Free Flight (FFF). The FFF has graciously offered a matching grant of $25,000 to be awarded upon the successful completion of fundraising and purchase. Their requirements include 3% of deposited contributions and a “sunset” date of 2023, when unused deposits are to be surrendered to the FFF. However, reallocation of unused deposits to projects appropriate to our mission is permitted, so it’s difficult to imagine the latter eventuality. Because the FFF is a 501(c)(3) organization, contributions to this account are both non-taxable for the TTT and tax-deductible for the donor.

All donations of $1000 or more should be sent as a check to:
 
Tennessee Tree Toppers
PO Box 1286
Dunlap, TN 37327

 

  1. DONATE DIRECTLY TO THE TTT FREE FLIGHT FUND AT CITIZENS TRI-COUNTY BANK
  • This account may receive contributions immediately and directly.
  • There are no requirements for deposited funds except their application to the stated goal.
  • The TTT is classified by the IRS as a 501(c)(7) non-taxable organization so, while dedicated contributions to a restricted account for a specific mission-related objective are nontaxable to the TTT, they are not tax deductible for the donor.

Checks should be made payable to: TN Tree Toppers Free Flight Fund

  1. AN ENDOWMENT ACCOUNT SET UP BY THE FOUNDATION FOR FREE FLIGHT (FFF).
  • Their requirements include 3% of deposited contributions and a “sunset” date of 2023, when unused deposits are to be surrendered to the FFF.
  • Reallocation of unused deposits can go toward projects appropriate to our mission in the event that for some reason we cannot purchase the Burnside property.  (It’s difficult to imagine that this will happen)
  • Because the FFF is a 501(c)(3), contributions to this account are both non-taxable for the TTT and tax-deductible for the donor.

Checks should be made payable to:  Foundation for Free Flight
