Other Ways to Give

  • Join the Ponderosa Leadership Circle: make a three-year pledge.
  • Donate appreciated securities, e.g., stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. This is one of the most tax-efficient, win-win ways to give.  Not only will you benefit from the charitable tax deductions, but, because the securities are donated rather than sold, capital gain taxes won't apply.  In other words, directly donated, appreciated securities have more value than the cash proceeds you might otherwise give from the sale of those securities.
  • Make an outright gift of real estate to the OLT today, or...  
  • Leave a legacy with a planned gift: remember the OLT in your will or living trust.  (Click for tips and sample language for making bequests.)  You can also name the OLT as a beneficiary of your retirement accounts or life insurance policy


Remember...


    • Charitable  gifts such as these will reduce your heirs' income and estate tax burdens.
    • Gifts may be unrestricted-- to be utilized at the OLT's discretion to carry out its mission-- or earmarked for a specific fund or purpose.  Contact us to ensure that your gift achieves your intended goal.
    • When considering a planned gift to the OLT, please consult with your legal and/or financial advisor(s).
