The Spirit of Generosity

Legacy gifts of all shapes and sizes have unequivocally created a spirit of generosity among friends and supporters of the Women’s Resource Center.

Your legacy donation can be added to existing endowment funds, designated to special areas of interest, or used to create entirely new possibilities—it’s uniquely up to you. Legacy Funds can provide enhancements for many of WRC’s vital programs.

Whether you choose to make an outright gift or elect to participate in one of the Women’s Resource Center’s income programs, legacy membership can be structured to suit your circumstances and preferences. 

Completing a gift by year’s end can help reduce your income taxes while providing support for those causes important to you. 

Depending on your gift, income tax deductions can be as high as 30 to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income. Appreciated property gifts are frequently favored by donors to avoid capital gains taxes and reduce the actual cost of making a gift.

Even stocks that have declined in value might be an excellent choice. This provides two benefits on your tax return: a loss as well as a charitable deduction.

And, of course, life income gifts are always popular and can provide the security of an increased and steady cash flow, if that is an important element to include in your charitable gift plans.

Discussing any of these ways to gift with your CPA can help you decide which is best suited to your individual situation.

If you would like further information on the many ways your contributions can help, please call the Executive Director of the WRC, Marva Bledsoe, at (760) 757-3500.
