Some of the most common ways to make a gift to the Seminar Network are to write a check or make a gift using a credit card.
A gift of cash could be right for you if:
- You want the easiest way to donate to the Seminar Network.
- You want the largest possible income tax charitable deduction for your gift.
- You would like to make the gift to the Seminar Network that has the greatest immediate impact.
How it works
You make a gift of cash directly to the Seminar Network and you receive an immediate income tax charitable deduction.
What is an outright gift of cash?
An outright gift of cash is when you transfer funds to the Seminar Network and get nothing of financial value in return. The most common way for donors to make an outright gift is to write a check payable to the Seminar Network.
Gift provides immediate support
Unlike some other gift arrangements, your outright gift will provide resources that the Seminar Network can put to immediate use. If you prefer to restrict our use of your gift in any way, please contact us so that we can be sure that we can carry out your wishes.
Maximum tax savings
You may deduct the full amount of your donation up to 60% of your adjusted gross income, providing tax savings if you itemize. You may carry forward all of your unused deduction for up to five additional years.
Ways to give cash
Most donors make an outright gift by writing a check payable to the Seminar Network and mailing it to us. You may also make a cash gift using your credit card.
Susan McNeil would like to make an immediate $15,000 gift to the Seminar Network. Susan could write a check for this amount and earn a charitable deduction equal to $15,000. Alternatively, Susan could make a gift using her credit card by calling us on the phone or responding to a mailing. Gifts of checks and gifts made via credit cards are considered cash gifts.
- Susan may deduct up to 60% of her adjusted gross income for her gift of cash, providing tax savings if she itemizes.
- If Susan itemizes deductions but cannot use the entire deduction in the year of gift, she may carry the balance forward for up to five additional years.
- Assuming Susan itemizes deductions and can use her entire income tax charitable deduction of $15,000, she will save her $5,550 (37% tax).
- Susan will gain the satisfaction of making a $15,000 gift to the Seminar Network.

Former President ColorMatrix Corporation
“I had a wonderful experience building my business…I worry about the people out there today trying to do the same thing. Once people see what the Seminar Network does and the quality of people who attend the Seminar, it’s a slam dunk…There are people who watch things happen. We want to make things happen.”
Owner Dungannon, LLC
“When I found out about the Seminar, I realized this was what I’d been looking for. This was the missing piece. It’s not about political parties, or more Republicans than Democrats—it’s more about how the nation should be governed…Whatever role I can play in trying to help it work is what I want to do.”
