A gift of appreciated securities
You will avoid capital gains, qualify for a charitable income tax deduction and be recognized for the full value of the securities on the day the shares leave your account. Contact Sheila Durkin by email telephone (760-753-1121, ext 5152), for information on how to have shares transferred electronically.
While current gifts are needed to support programs at San Dieguito, gifts from your will or estate plan are also welcome. Please consider the following ways to support San Dieguito in the future.
- Name SDA Foundation in your will. Consider leaving a specific percentage of your estate to SDA Foundation to fund future needs or to build our endowment.
- Name SDA Foundation as a contingent beneficiary of your IRA or pension plan.
- Name SDA Foundation as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy that your family no longer needs.
- Gift your home to SDA Foundation through your will or estate plan.
By notifying the SDA Foundation that you are making a gift from your will or estate plan, you will become a member of the San Dieguito Pioneer Society. You will be invited to an annual event honoring members, and your generosity will be acknowledged on the Pioneer Society plaque on the San Dieguito campus. For details on planned giving, contact:
