Ways To Give

There are many ways to give a financial gift to Wernle Youth & Family Treatment Center, depending on your personal situation.
Whether it is a cash donation or the transfer of other assets, your gift to Wernle costs less than you may think
Please consult your tax advisor regarding your specific situation.

CASH
A cash gift is the most popular way to give because of its simplicity. Cash contributions can be a one-time gift, an annual gift or pledged over a period of time.

APPRECIATED PROPERTY
Giving stocks, bonds, mutual funds or real estate will provide greater tax benefits than a cash gift of equivalent value, especially if they have a low cost basis. You will receive a charitable deduction for the full market value.

LIFE INSURANCE
Giving a life insurance policy is an inexpensive way to make a substantial contribution to Wernle Youth & Family Treatment Center. Many people find in later years that they do not need all the insurance they did when they were younger. You may name Wernle as sole beneficiary and transfer ownership.

CHARITABLE BEQUESTS MADE IN WILLS OR TRUSTS
The majority of planned gifts that we receive are a result of charitable bequests. Such gifts enable you to make significant contributions that may not have been possible in your lifetime. The most obvious advantage to remembering Wernle Youth & Family Treatment Center in your will is that you reduce estate taxes while still supporting a mission that you believe in.

PLANNED GIFTS
A planned gift is one made or promised from the donor’s assets (typically appreciated assets) or from an estate. Contact your tax advisor for information regarding planned giving or contact the development staff at Wernle Youth & Family Treatment Center.
