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.
