How Can I Help Young House Family Services?

There are at least six ways you can help us:

1. Annual Gifts of Cash -- We invite our friends to help meet the challenges of the future through annual gifts made payable to the Young House Family Services Foundation.

2. Stocks and Other Securities -- Stocks and other securities transferred to Young House Family Services Foundation are tax deductible at their fair market value. Donors are not required to pay capital gains tax on appreciated securities that have been held for more than one year before being donated.

3. Bequests Suggested wording for an unrestricted bequest: "I give to the Young House Family Services Foundation the sum of $ (or provide a description of stock or other property which is to be given) to be used in such manner as its Foundation may determine."

4. Life Insurance -- Established or new life insurance policies can be left to the Foundation by naming it as a beneficiary of a specific portion or a percentage of the existing or new policy.

5. Memorials -- Gifts of any type to the Foundation may be established in memory or in honor of loved ones, friends or business associates.

6. Charitable Trusts -- There are a variety of different types of trusts that a donor can establish to benefit themselves, their beneficiaries and their favorite charities. These types of trusts include the charitable remainder trust, charitable remainder annuity trust, charitable remainder unitrust, and the pooled income fund. An estate planning attorney, financial planner or trust officer may be able to assist you in establishing the type of trust that is best for you.

As with gifts made during life, emotional satisfaction is not the only benefit derived from your contribution. There may be tax advantages to charitable giving as well. We would be glad to meet with you and your legal or tax advisors to discuss the best strategies for your unique circumstances. Please contact us for more information at (319) 752-4000, ext. 105.

Always gratefully received, gifts to the agency may be addressed to:
Young House Family Services Foundation
400 S Broadway,
Burlington, IA 52601
