It is becoming more common for donors to make gifts of securities. We recommend that donors consult their financial advisor to learn the advantages of these types of gifts. For details about how to make a gift of stock, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
MATCHING CORPORATE GIFTS
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. If you work for a company that matches gifts, you can double or triple the value of your contribution. Contact your Human Resources Department for eligibility information and to obtain a matching gift form, and follow your employer’s matching gift procedures.
GIFTS IN KIND
Los Encinos School welcomes gifts of tangible personal property that can be used to further the school’s mission or provide an operational savings. By donating items like computers, audio-visual equipment, athletic equipment and books, donors not only reduce their taxable estate, they also reduce taxable income in the year of the gift. Donors and their tax advisors assign a fair market value to the gift for tax purposes.
BEQUESTS AND PLANNED GIFTS
Planned giving is a gift vehicle that allows you to donate via a trust, an annuity, or, most commonly, a bequest. Including Los Encinos School in your will can establish a permanent family legacy and provide tax benefits, a life income benefit, or other favorable estate arrangements. Your own tax advisor, attorney, or estate planning professional can help you determine the best way for you to make a gift to Los Encinos School.
Los Encinos School is pleased to receive donations via wire transfer or ACH. For more information or for wire instructions or to authorize an ACH, please contact: email@example.com
