The MudFund

Cyclocross has been a longstanding entry point into bike racing for young riders and has proven instrumental in developing the technical, physiological and mental skills that translate across all cycling disciplines. This makes cyclocross one of the key disciplines for long term athlete development.

The MudFund exists to support America’s most promising, young cyclocross riders. It supports USA Cycling’s core cyclocross programming, including international racing opportunities, domestic skills camps and holistic athlete coaching and services.

Giving Securities

While gifts of cash to the Foundation are essential and always gratefully received, in some circumstances a charitable gift of securities may be especially beneficial to a donor Just as cash gifts to the USA Cycling Foundation are deductible from federal income tax returns for those who itemize, gifts of qualified non-cash properties are also deductible.

The Special Incentives of Non-Cash Securities

Many securities you own may be worth much more than you paid for them in past years. As appreciated securities, these are attractive gifts. In most cases the deduction is for the current fair market value of the securities given. The deductible amount includes both what you paid and your gain. This may dramatically reduce the cost of making a charitable gift, or help to increase the amount you can afford to give. To deduct gifts of appreciated securities at their current value, you must have owned them for at least one year and one day.

  • What is Best to Give?

    Publicly traded securities are usually the simplest to give due to the ease of transferring them and determining their value for deduction purposes. Closely held stocks may also be given, but special rules apply to them. Other properties may make outstanding gifts, but again, special rules may apply. It is usually better to sell securities that have dropped below their original value and then give the cash proceeds, as you may realize tax benefits from both the capital loss and the charitable gift. Please consult your tax advisor prior to making gifts of this type in order to maximize both your gift and your deduction.

  • Making the Transaction

    After you have chosen the security and the amount you will give, your investment broker can help complete the gift. Please contact the USA Cycling Foundation office and advise us of the gift to be made, and the method you expect to use for delivery of the cash or securities. It is the Policy of USA Cycling Foundation to determine the gift value of the transfer for pledge purposes when the securities have been received by our account at Thomas Weisel Partners. In order to be sure that our broker is aware securities are being transferred to the brokerage account, you must notify them of the specific number of shares and the date to look for the securities.
