OTHER WAYS TO GIVE
Do You Own Stocks?
Get appreciation from us because of your appreciation! Give a gift of appreciated securities, which may help you save big on taxes! It’s super easy: Just email [email protected], and Cherilyn Parsons will get back to you. Or, if you prefer, just email [email protected], describe your intention, and cc your broker; we’ll do the rest, with your confirmation. You’ll experience our appreciation at the relevant donor level.
Do you appreciate getting older (maybe?) and have an “Uncle Ira” (IRA)? Benefit from another tax-saver: if you’re over 70 ½ and must take a “required qualified distribution” from your IRA (a distribution that otherwise adds to your tax base this year), you can donate all or part of it (min. $1,000) to BABF. Email [email protected] as above.
Other questions?! Email [email protected].
Have a Donor Advised Fund?
Many of our larger donors give this way. Just ask your manager to send your grant to the Foundation for Literature and Literacy (dba Bay Area Book Festival), a 501(c)(3) designated, California-based nonprofit corporation with Tax ID #47-3955286, at 1569 Solano Ave. #635, Berkeley, CA 94707, with contact person Cherilyn Parsons at [email protected]. The manager will confirm with us that we don’t provide any goods and services. Easy!
Prefer to Donate by Check?
Please make a check out to Bay Area Book Festival and send to 1569 Solano Avenue #635, Berkeley, CA 94707. If possible, please include your email address.
