Types of Gifts
Gifts of Stock
If you are a business owner and you contribute closely held stock, you may take a charitable deduction for the stock's appraised fair market value. Besides increasing your cash flow, you also avoid the potential capital gains tax on the appreciated value of the stock. The corporation may buy back the stock, but so long as Pacific is not legally obligated to sell back the stock, you may enjoy significant tax savings.
For record purposes, the date of a gift of closely held stock is considered to be the date the stock is transferred.
Features and benefits of gifts of closely held stock:

  • Opportunity to make a significant gift to Pacific
  • Charitable income tax deduction
  • Avoid capital gains taxes
  • Positive impact on cash flow
  • Estate tax and probate Savings
  • Excellent estate planning opportunity for yourself and your heirs

Electronic Funds Transfer
To give a gift via Electronic Funds Transfer, please email or call 209.946.2303.

Matching Gifts
A matching gift is financial support to Pacific provided by companies through employees matching gift programs. Some companies match their employee's monetary gifts to nonprofit organizations, such as Pacific. This allows you to multiply your support by doubling, or in some cases even tripling your gift!
