The OPAF Legacy Program
The OPAF Legacy Program helps to insure the future health of OPAF as we expand our direct service programs and grow our official representation of the O&P community.
The OPAF Legacy Program is made possible through our relationship with The T. Rowe Price Program for Charitable Giving, a national donor-advised fund that promotes philanthropy in the United States.
As a public charity and an IRS registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the Program for Charitable Giving will receive contributions made to the OPAF Legacy Program and will provide donors with all of the necessary information to receive a federal income tax deduction up to allowable Internal Revenue Service limits. In addition, donors can contribute marketable securities to the OPAF Legacy Program. By transferring long-term appreciated securities in-kind to the Program for Charitable Giving, donors may then deduct the full value of the appreciated securities and avoid paying capital gains taxes. From time to time, OPAF's Board President and Executive Director, with approval of the full Board, will recommend that a distribution be made from the Legacy Program to sustain and grow OPAF's mission. Donations to The OPAF Legacy Program at The T. Rowe Price Program for Charitable Giving can be as little as $500 or as generous as you wish.
Excellence, guidance, and integrity
Through the Program for Charitable Giving, OPAF benefits from the investment management excellence and comprehensive research of the mutual funds firm of T. Rowe Price Associates, Inc., because the assets in the OPAF Legacy Program are invested under T. Rowe Price's guidance. Since its founding in 1937, T. Rowe Price has built a heritage of integrity, founded on the principle that taking care of its clients will take care of the company. That philosophy, combined with proprietary research, provides a foundation for the company's consistent, long-term risk-aware strategy for managing investments. As of June 30, 2002, the firm and its affiliates managed $148.8 billion in assets.
The OPAF Legacy Program enables you to embrace and carry forward your own legacy of charitable giving through the official philanthropy of the O&P community. Here is a way of giving a gift that will make an enduring difference to the entire O&P community and the individuals we serve.
