Planned Giving Options
As the year draws to a close, here are some TIPS about ways you can help the Community Center stay in the black while at the same time helping your taxes:
GIVE STOCK DIRECTLY.
With the stock market up, those who own stock probably have some that has appreciated. If you give that stock directly through your broker to ours, you get the benefit of a full tax deduction at current value – and do not have to pay the capital gains tax. Contact Meredeth Bertacco (707 823-4708) at Edward Jones in Sebastopol to arrange a transfer.
DONATE A USED CAR OR TRUCK.
Our vehicle donation program is now in full swing. We’ve contracted with CAR DONATING IS EASY. They pick up the vehicle (need not be running) and do all the rest. You get a tax deduction for what the vehicle brings on auction, and you get the added satisfaction of having supported SCCC. Just call 855-500-RIDE and tell the operator that you’re interested in donating your vehicle to the Sebastopol Community Cultural Center, or follow this link to start the car donation process online.
STAY TUNED FOR MORE ON LEGACY GIVING.
We will soon be starting our program designed to encourage major gifts through estate planning devices – with the purpose of building an endowment for the Center so that we do not face a financial crisis every year-end but have some reserves for a “rainy day”.
