You can also help sustain SPAC by:

  • Donating an Asset
    The simplest way to support SPAC is through cash gifts. But creative gifts of assets can include stocks, bonds, and property (e.g., real estate as well as personal property such as artwork). These can not only provide you with charitable deductions, but often offer additional tax savings.
  • Bequest
    By remembering SPAC in your will, you may be able to secure a charitable estate-tax deduction for the value of the gift. Best of all, you will know that your generosity will support SPAC for years to come and leave a lasting legacy. For including SPAC in your future plans, you will be recognized as a member of SPAC's legacy society, The Encore Society. For sample bequest language, please contact Christine Dixon at (518) 584-9330 x112 or
  • Giving Retirement Plan Benefits
    You may consider using retirement plan benefits to make a significant gift that will support SPAC. Because of the estate and income tax treatment of retirement plan benefits, the cost of your gift to your estate and heirs is often relatively small.
  • Via Matching Gifts from Your Employer
    Many employers match employee contributions to educational institutions like SPAC, so don't miss out on this easy opportunity to double the impact of your gift. Information should be available to you through your HR office.
  • Volunteering
    If you prefer to make a gift of your time and talents instead, we encourage you to explore the many options available, among them service on SPAC's Action Council, Junior Committee or as an usher during the summer season. Click here to learn more.
