Gifts of Cash and Securities
These are usually tax-deductible, whether given outright or as a pledge payable within five years. In most cases, you may deduct the fair market value and so avoid capital gains tax.
A Planned Gift
A planned gift gives you the opportunity to make a deferred gift to the Worcester Youth Center that integrates it with your overall financial, tax, and estate goals. Planned gifts can maximize the benefits to both you and the Center. Some ways that many donors choose are:
• Real Estate
• Life Insurance
• Donor Advised Funds
• Mutual Funds
Please consult with your financial and legal advisors to consider the best type of planned gift for your circumstances.
A matching gift can double your support. Many companies offer Matching Gifts programs for their employees. Ask your company’s human resources department to find out more.
Join with others who make an Annual Appeal gift at the $250 level and above. The Mentor Society is the Worcester Youth Center’s giving society that recognizes annual gifts of $250 and above to the Center’s operating budget.
Because the Center does not charge its participants a membership fee, all of its budget must be raised from contributions and grants. Conducting the Annual Appeal is one way that the board and volunteers raise money from the community to support programs.
Mentor Society level donors will:
• Be recognized as members in appropriate printed materials
• Be invited to an annual event to see firsthand how their contribution makes a difference to the Center, and
• Receive a semi-annual update on the Center from the Board Chair and Executive Director.
