GiveBIG  The Seattle Foundation's GiveBIG is an annual one-day, online charitable giving event to inspire people to give generously to nonprofit organizations who make our region a healthier and more vital place to live. This year's GiveBIG takes place on May 10th. KCSARC received an astounding $20,000 in donations in 2016! If you'd like to make a gift to the 2017 GiveBIG campaign, you can do do here: www.givebigseattle.org/kcsarc 

Gifts of Stock
There are lots of advantages to making a stock gift. Although you should check with your tax professional about how these rules apply to you, the following information may help you understand the process:

  • Under current tax laws, the full fair-market value of stocks and bonds (up to 30% of adjusted gross income this year, with a five-year carryover for any “excess”) may be deducted. The extra benefit of donating appreciated stocks or bonds is that federal capital gains tax on the securities unrealized appreciation may be avoided.

  • The value of your gift of securities is based upon the mean between the high and low quotations on the specific day your securities pass from your control.

To donate stock, contact your broker to determine the stock and number of shares you would like to contribute. Then contact KCSARC’s External Relations Department at 425.226.5062 with your broker’s contact information and the information about the shares you are donating.

Planned Giving
Make an investment in KCSARC’s future with a living legacy gift or bequest. Legacy gifts help ensure that your commitment to helping KCSARC end the silence around sexual assault will continue. Planning a gift of assets with estate and tax implications in mind, enables you to help KCSARC while keeping your own financial goals in site. You may fund your gift in various ways including cash, real estate, property, stock, life insurance and retirement funds. A legacy gift can help you avoid capital gains taxes at the time of the gift, protect assets otherwise subject to estate and gift taxes and reduce current income taxes. For more information on planning a legacy gift to KCSARC, contact your attorney or the External Relations Department at 425.226.5062.

Gifts of Goods or Services
In-kind donations are non-cash gifts of materials, services or long-lived assets that support and serve the mission of KCSARC. Such gifts may include equipment, software, printed materials, or services such as printing or consulting. Gifts in-kind are a valued way of supporting KCSARC and are tax-deductible as allowed.
