The Anacortes Schools Foundation is a non-profit, 501 (c) (3) volunteer organization which functions independently of the school district for the benefit of our students, educators, and community.
Created from just one family's donation in 1984, ASF now manages more than $1.3 million in assets and distributes more than $60,000 in annual scholarships. Originally known as the Fidalgo Island Educational Youth Foundation, Anacortes Schools Foundation's mission is to:
The ASF believes passionately in the importance of community awareness and involvement in our schools. We sponsor the annual All-Class Reunion and the annual Awards Night where scholarships are presented to our selected students. We welcome students, parents, alumni and community members of all ages to make inquiries at any time. If you would like to know more, please contact us now!
The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 extends the IRA Charitable Rollover through December 31, 2013. This provision permits tax-free distributions to an eligible charity from an IRA held by someone age 70½ or older of up to $100,000 per taxpayer, per taxable year. The provision includes two transition rules to allow donors to make 2012 contributions. First, the extension allows individuals who received an IRA distribution in December 2012 to elect to count that distribution (or a portion thereof) as a 2012 IRA charitable rollover if the individual transfers the amount in cash before February 1, 2013, to an eligible charity. Additionally, the extension allows donors to make distributions directly to eligible charities before February 1, 2013, and elect to have such distributions treated as qualified charitable distributions in 2012. This change may be of particular benefit to donors who would like to take advantage of the rollover in both 2012 and 2013.
