Planned Gifts

Lao Community Cultural Center welcomes planned gifts in a variety of forms. Some of the instruments listed below require legal/contractual documentation to become established. As a service to the donor, Lao Community Cultural Center will draw-up proposed initial documentation for a deferred gift. Donors should consult their own qualified financial planner or attorney before consummating a charitable gift. Or if preferred, Lao Community Cultural Center has a licensed in-house financial consultant, who will facilitate

  • Life Income Plans
  • Life Estate Agreements
  • Gift Annuities
  • Gift of Life Insurance
  • Deferred Payment Gift Annuity

Securities

You may wish to make a gift to Lao Community Cultural Center of appreciated securities. If the stock you are contributing has been owned for more than one year, you may be able to deduct the fair market value of the stock as a charitable contribution, while avoiding capital gains taxes. Other rules apply for stocks held less than one year.

Real Estate

Gifts of real estate offer similar tax advantages as gifts of stock. If the property has been owned for more than one year, you may be able to deduct as a charitable contribution the fair market value of the real estate, while avoiding capital gains taxes. Other rules apply for properties held less than one year.

Bequests

Lao Community Cultural Center has relied greatly on friends who have provided for its programs in their wills. Whether you wish to memorialize a loved one, provide financial support for qualified students, or underwrite a specific program, a bequest is one of the easiest ways to make a planned gift for the future.

Lao Community Cultural Center may be designated as a beneficiary either by rewriting your will or trust, by the addition of a codicil to your existing will, or by an amendment to your existing trust. Bequests usually permit an estate tax deduction for the amount of the gift. Unless otherwise specified by the donor, all bequests received by Lao Community Cultural Center are placed within its Endowment Fund. There, they will help to enhance the agency’s programs for youth, in perpetuity.

Personal Property

Though often overlooked, in-kind gifts of tangible personal property (such as artwork, equipment, automobiles, etc.) are an excellent way to help support Lao Community Cultural Center. While Lao Community Cultural Center is grateful for every donor’s intent to give, some personal property donations must be approved prior to acceptance. For your convenience, Lao Community Cultural Center will arrange to transport approved items.

Matching Gifts

Many employers match the donations their current and retired employees make to charitable organizations. If your company has a matching gift program, your gift could be increased (maybe even doubled) — at no additional cost to you. When making a gift to Lao Community Cultural Center, simply request a matching gift form from your employer’s human resources department. Include this form with your gift. Lao Community Cultural Center will process the matching gift form and will notify you once the matching gift from your employer has been received.
