Other Ways You Can Help
KYC is proud to partner with our community to serve the needs of our clients, partners, volunteers, and staff. Help spread the word about our work:
Please Ask Your Employer:
- Will your company accept a grant application from KYC?
- Does your company have a “Directed Giving” program?
- Will you company match your gifts to KYC?
- Do you have a “Dollars for Doers” program for volunteers?
- Would your company host a fundraising activity with employees?
- Would your company welcome an employee education program?
Consider Planned Giving:
- Include a simple bequest in your Will or Trust Agreement to continue the work you have supported during your life.
- Establish a living memorial to someone you want to honor — a special trust fund titled according to your directions.
- Establish a special fund to carry out the Kenneth Young Center’s service that is especially important to you.
- Leave a percentage of your estate to Kenneth Young Center, instead of a dollar amount.
- Consider a bequest of securities, real estate, or personal property to Kenneth Young Center.
- Designate Kenneth Young Center as the beneficiary of your life insurance policy or your retirement plan.
- Designate Kenneth Young Center as the beneficiary under a Charitable Remainder Trust (which pays a set income to you or those you name before KYC receives the remainder).
- Designate Kenneth Young Center as the recipient of income through a Charitable Lead Trust (which pays income to KYC for a period of years before you or your heirs receive the remainder).
As with gifts made during your life, the emotional satisfaction is not the only benefit derived from your contribution — there may be tax advantages to charitable giving as well. Remember that charitable bequests are 100% deductible for estate tax purposes, regardless what kind of property you bequeath.
Donations of appreciated capital gain property may provide additional tax savings during one’s lifetime. For example, no capital gains tax is due on the gift of appreciated stock.
Kenneth Young Center is a not-for-profit organization qualified to receive tax deductible contributions under section 501©(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Please consult with your legal and tax advisors to discuss the best strategy for your particular circumstances.
Be an advocate — a volunteer — a learner, by partnering with Kenneth Young Center.
