Gifts of Stocks and Bonds
Many donors make gifts in the form of appreciated securities. A donation of appreciated stock (whether as an outright gift or a planned gift) provides an income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift. List the Recipient Institution as Yavneh Day School, located at 18455 Oka Road, Suite 100, Los Gatos, CA 95032. Our Broker: Charles Schwab.

Gifts of Real Estate or Other Tangible Property
Almost any kind of real estate can make a valuable gift: primary residence, vacation home, farm, commercial building, or an undeveloped parcel of land. A donor can gift his/her residence now and still reside in it for life. Contributions of capital assets are deductible based on the property's fair market value at the time the contribution is made.
Yavneh appreciates gifts of time and talent as much as dollars and in-kind donations. There are many ways to volunteer -- teacher's aides, office support, and, of special importance, membership on various fundraising activities and outreach efforts. Parent Participaton Credits are awarded for volunteer activities. Parents are required to earn 25 PPCs each year.

Giving for the Future
A planned gift to Yavneh Day School will allow you to create a legacy for our community while meeting your own financial and personal objectives. In addition to continuing your lifetime interest in the School, you may be able to:
- Reduce income, gift, and estate taxes
- Secure a source of cash flow for the rest of your life
- Reduce or eliminate capital gains taxes
A planned gift differs from a check a supporter writes today in that:
- It provides for Yavneh Day School to receive the proceeds at a future date;
- It may be part of the donor's overall estate and financial plans (such as a bequest or trust);
- It may have some tax advantages to the donor that may occur immediately, even if the gift transfer won't occur for some time.
Types of Planned Gifts
Wills and Living Trusts
Charitable bequests are made through wills or revocable living trusts. Bequests are simple to arrange, offer flexibility, and can reduce estate taxes. (Please scroll down the page for language you can use in your will.)
Life Income Plans
There are a number of ways to donate cash, securities, or other property and arrange lifetime payments for you or your loved ones. Benefits include a current income tax deduction, as well as other possible tax advantages.
Retirement Plan Assets
In many cases, donating some or all of the assets from your IRA, 401(k), or other qualified retirement plan is a smart option. Gifts can be made during your lifetime or upon death.
Other Planned Gift Options
We welcome contributions of a variety of types of assets such as securities, life insurance policies, U.S. savings bonds, annuity contracts, tangible personal property, and works of art. Your estate attorney, accountant or other financial advisor can provide you with more details on the types of gifts that offer these tangible benefits.
