Gifts of Stock

When donating appreciated securities, you bypass capital gains tax and may deduct the fair market value of your gift.  Your gift of stock may allow you to make a bigger philanthropic impact to areas you care about the most.

Please contact the Foundation at (760) 942-9245.

Gifts of Real Estate

A gift of real estate to the Foundation is an excellent way to establish a charitable fund or add to an existing one. You may choose to make a current donation of real estate or a planned gift.    There are a number of advantages when you donate a property today:

1 – You avoid all capital gains taxes you might incur if the property was sold by you.

2 – You receive an immediate charitable deduction equal to the fair market value of the donated property.

3 – You may avoid potential future estate taxes on the gifted property.

Please contact Lane Macy Kiefaber at the Foundation at (760) 942-9245 or email
