Ways to Give

Making A Difference

There are many ways to give to the non-profit, Giving Opportunities to Kids, through its Foundation.

Memorials:
A check in the name of a friend or loved one is a thoughtful memorial. The Foundation's address is 1305 E. Vine Street, Lodi, CA 95240.

Year End Giving:
Thanksgiving, Christmas and the end of the year have become known as the season of giving. Most organizations receive more public offerings then than any time of the year.

Gifts of Cash:
Your tax deductible check is appreciated.

Property Gifts with income tax advantage can be made in the form of appreciated securities, real estate, life insurance, and other property.

Bequeaths (gifts) can be made through provisions in your will or trust and can be used to potentially reduce estate taxes.

Charitable Trusts Gifts made through charitable trusts can strengthen your financial future as well as the children attending Lodi Unified schools. Along with the tax advantages, you have the ability to receive income immediately.

Insurance:
Life Insurance provides an attractive vehicle for gifts to worthy causes. A reputable agent working with you and the Foundation can stretch your gifting dollar.

Donor Advised Funds:
A donor advised fund is the easiest way to create your own Foundation. You make recommendations for grants to specific nonprofit organizations from your fund without worrying about administrative overhead.
