Although our children graduated years ago, we still donate annually to the Kiddo! Endowment to support the Endowment’s core mission of funding arts programs in perpetuity. 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. To make a more significant impact beyond our lifetime, we have also made a planned gift. We found that the easiest and most tax advantageous method for us was to name Kiddo! as the beneficiary of an existing IRA. Individual beneficiaries (including spouses) can be taxed as high as 39%, but Kiddo!, as a 501(c)3, will receive 100%!
