Estate Planning & Giving

Happy Family

Want to Give and Help Change a Child Life

Gifts of Cash

Making an outright gift of cash is a simple method of giving. It is not subject to gift or estate taxes, and you may be able to deduct the gift amount on your federal income tax return, approximately up to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income.  Should the gift total exceed the gift ceiling for one year, you can carry over the remaining deduction to succeeding tax years until it's exhausted, or for up to five years, whichever comes first. So with careful planning, nearly every outright gift to Camp4Kids can be fully deducted.


Make checks payable to Camp4Kids and send to:

Credit Card

A fast and convenient method for giving, we accept gifts via credit card through a secure online service  like PayPal or by calling the Office  at 714-474-9774.


Qualified charitable distributions (QCDs) are a unique tax strategy that allow individuals who are at least age 70½ and have Traditional and/or Inherited IRAs to distribute up to $100,000 per year directly from their IRA to a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with no federal income tax consequences. Gifts made to grant-making foundations, donor advised funds, or charitable gift annuities are excluded from these rules.  For more information please call Ryan Hawkins at Wells Fargo Advisors L.L.C. Phone: 714.406.0571.


For taxpayers age 70 1/2 or older, a QCD allows you to gift directly from your IRA up to $100,000 per year to qualifying charities. QCDs are tax-free distributions and count toward satisfying your required minimum distribution (RMD).  No deduction is allowed since the distribution is not taxable.  This strategy is beneficial if the taxpayer will not itemize their deductions in the current year.  It could also help taxpayers control their adjusted gross income (AGI) which is used to determine many tax-related limitations. 

Gifts of Stock

Gifting securities to Camp4Kids offers tax advantages over cash gifts. You will receive credit for the full market value of the stock and will avoid capital gains tax.  Here is the Information you need to give to your broker to complete simple electronic transfers.
