The Susquehanna Litho Foundation
The Susquehanna Litho Foundation (SLF) was formed during the 1997-1998 year to increase the Litho Club’s ability to award additional educational opportunities in the graphic arts field. As many people are aware, the Susquehanna Litho Club has awarded up to two scholarships per year for many years. These scholarships were awarded from the funds raised by the club at its monthly dinner meetings, half day seminars and its membership dues. However, as the Susquehanna Litho Club was not a tax exempt foundation, any donations made directly to the club could not be deducted from one’s personal income taxes. This prevented the club from substantially increasing its ability to award additional scholarships.
The Susquehanna Litho Foundation was formed with the sole purpose to establish and maintain a scholarship fund and to award scholarships to students wishing to further their education in the field of graphic arts. The SLF was chartered as a Nonprofit, Private Foundation under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations made directly to the Susquehanna Litho Foundation may be partially or totally deductible from an individual’s personal income tax based on their tax status. Please consult your tax advisor for further information concerning your individual tax status.
Please keep the Susquehanna Litho Foundation in your thoughts as you consider the donations you may make throughout this year and the many years to come. Donations may be made in many different ways, a few of which include:
- A one time donation.
- A monthly or annual commitment.
- A one time bequest in one’s will.
- A designated gift.*
- A donation of services or goods that the SLF can utilize to further their ability to
educate individuals in the Graphic Arts field.
