There are many ways to donate:

Cash and Gift Pledge
The advantage of this method is that the actual cost of the gift is less than the total dollar amount given to the Twentynine Palms Historical Society. You may be able to deduct up to 50 percent of the gift off your adjusted gross income in the year you make the gift.

Matching Gift
Your employer (or spouse's employer) may match employee gifts to the Twentynine Palms Historical Society.

Stocks and Bonds
Use this way to donate highly appreciated stocks to benefit the Twentynine Palms Historical Society and to potentially provide capital gains tax savings.

Real Estate
Giving private, commercial or agricultural property. If your property has decreased in value, you should consider selling it and contributing the proceeds to receive both capital loss and charitable gift deductions. We encourage you to contact us during the early stages of your planning so we can work together to decide the best use of this property.

Your Will
Your will can include gifts in the form of stocks, bonds, cash, real estate, personal property or a percentage of your estate. Work with your attorney if you want the Twentynine Palms Historical Society to be the recipient of a future gift.

Life Insurance
You can make a substantial gift with modest premium payments, or use paid up policies that are no longer needed for your family members. You may also contribute other appreciated assets to the Twentynine Palms Historical Society and with the related tax savings purchase a life insurance policy for the benefit of your family.

Retirement Savings
Name the Twentynine Palms Historical Society as a beneficiary of your retirement account. This could allow that portion of your account to pass income tax free to the Twentynine Palms Historical Society.
