For us, the solution to helping Kiddo! was to take out a life insurance policy with the premiums invested in a managed growth stock portfolio. The Kiddo! Endowment is the owner and beneficiary allowing the premiums we pay to be …
…donation of the car. We were able to help Kiddo! and get a tax deduction. It was so simple!
We contributed without using out-of-pocket cash. We avoided capital gains taxes.
We decided to contribute to the Kiddo! Endowment Fund so that our grandkids and future generations of children can also enjoy the benefits of the arts. We encourage other grandparents to join us in our effort.
Appreciated property is one of the last areas where you can still give to your favorite charity, and get a substantial tax benefit which can be as high as 39%.
We gave to the Kiddo! Endowment to say ‘Thanks!’ for helping us raise our children with the joy and smiles of singing, dancing and performing throughout their K-8 years.
We believe it’s vitally important to support our local public schools and that it adds value to our community in so many ways.
We feel it is incumbent on those of us whose children have benefited from Kiddo! programs, to ensure that future generations of Mill Valley students will have those same wonderful opportunities.
We have been longtime supporters of Kiddo! We firmly believe in its vision and its mission. Kiddo! does great work and has been an integral part of our Mill Valley community for many years.
