Memorial and Honorary Gifts

Planned giving.  What is it?

Your death- it is not something you like to think about. However, if you don’t make your decisions now, someone else will make them for you later.  Please consider Tahoe SAFE Alliance when planning a donation to a not-for-profit organization.

Give a gift that will help to affect positive change in your community.

Why give to Tahoe SAFE Alliance?

Your dollars will help us provide:

  • 24-Hour Community Helpline
  • Shelter for women and children fleeing intimate partner violence situation
  • Legal assistance and support
  • Food, gas vouchers and other support resources
  • Individual and group counseling services for victims and their children
  • Hospital and court accompaniment
  • Prevention education to school children, businesses and community members

Estate Planning Options:

Fields of Interest – This Planned Giving Program option establishes a fund in the donor’s name to benefit a cause the donor holds dear (Safe House, Children’s Program, Advocacy and Support, Prevention Education).

Unrestricted Gifts – Allows Tahoe SAFE Alliance the flexibility to respond to vital needs as times change.

Bequests – This Planned Giving Program option allows you to give cash, securities, personal property and/or real estate.

Charitable Remainder Trust – Eliminating or substantially reducing estate and capital gains taxes can be accomplished by contributing an asset to a Charitable Remainder Trust.  You will continue to receive income generated from the asset, and upon death have the remaining value of that asset pass to the organization.

Securities – Gift securities (most common forms are bonds and common and preferred stock).  Your estate will maximize deductions and avoid capital gains tax.

Life Insurance – Life insurance protection that is no longer needed can be used to create a charitable endowment, avoiding costly estate taxes.
