Donations
Introduction to Sub Funds

The AF allows the special designation of incoming donations under the various "sub fund" label, each sub fund can have a manager, who can direct the usage of donations made under its name, subject to a number of AF rules.

Over the years, the AF has accumulated over 200 sub funds, many active in all of our various award programs. The detailed information about each sub fund is available to all of our members in our web-based accounting system, including:

  • Fund Balances (current, previous year)
  • Fund Activities (pledges, donations, and awards)

The various sub funds are set up for various purposes, such as:

  • Classmates getting together to support future students in the same department, such as "812 fund" or "Future Chemist Fund".
  • Goodwill funds, supporting economically challenged students and cover their living expenses for all 4 years.
  • Memorial Funds, set up for future scholarships in the names of certain unexpectedly deceased alumni

If you are interested in setting up a sub fund for a certain purpose, please let us know and we'll be happy to discuss with you about the process. The AF does not charge any fees for managing sub funds, all donations go to award/scholarship recipients.

To access the web-based accounting system, you need to be a member and apply for an account along the way, if you follow the on-screen instructions. If you run into any problem, please be sure to contact us.

More information about sub funds can be found in our Sub Fund FAQ page.

 
Donating Stock, Enjoy Extra Tax Savings

Please consider donating stock shares you own to the USTC AF. You will enjoy extra tax savings (bigger if they appreciated significantly) if you are US tax payer.

The basic idea of the IRS rules is that, if you bought some stock shares (be it company options, ESPP purchases, etc.) at $10, and the shares are worth $100 each. You will be able to deduct the full $100 from your taxable income AND you don't have to pay capital gains tax since you never technically sold the stock.

In this situation, if you sold the stock and kept the income, you are hit with $18 of capital gains tax (20%, assuming long term), and $3.42 of Medicare Surfax (assuming high income, starting 2013), and gets back $78.58 in after-tax cash.

However, if you donated the stock shares to the USTC AF. You'll enjoy full $100 worth of deduction on your REGULAR INCOME, which will net you approximately $49.6 of tax savings (assuming 39.6% federal bracket and 9.0% state bracket in a high-rate state such as California and New York).

The net effect is, for a cost of $28.98 to you, the USTC AF enjoys a full $100 worth of fund to support our various programs, benefiting young and talented students and faculty members. Of course, your situation may vary, and please consult your accountant for authoritative tax advices.
