Ways of Giving
Your gift is important to the success of the Tateuchi Center Campaign. There are many ways to make a gift to the Campaign, and contributions can be designated to either the Capital or Endowment fund. Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
A gift of cash is the simplest and most direct means of contributing to the Campaign. Donations by credit card, check (made payable to either “PACE” or “Tateuchi Center”), or wire transfer are welcome. Gifts are accepted via the secure online form below with Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.

To increase your ability to make a substantial gift, consider making a pledge now, with payments and tax deductions spread over a number of years. Payments can be scheduled according to your needs, and pledge periods can extend up to five years.
Gifts of Securities
A gift of appreciated securities may be more favorable as a tax deduction than a cash donation. Publicly traded stocks, bonds, and mutual fund shares, as well as privately held stock and certain other securities, can be donated to the Tateuchi Center Campaign. The considerations involved in transferring and valuing each type of security vary.
Many employers offer matching gift programs for charitable contributions made by current employees and retirees. Such programs may allow donors to double or triple the amount of their contribution to the Tateuchi Center Campaign. Please consult your benefits coordinator or human resource manager to learn how to ensure the match is made. If no formal matching program is established, ask your employer—your gift may be matched anyway, because of your inquiry. Tateuchi Center will give you recognition credit for the matching amount provided by your company.
Donors are encouraged to build family gifts by inviting parents and grandparents, children and grandchildren, aunts and uncles, sisters, brothers, and others to join together to support Tateuchi Center. By building family gifts, donors may be able to secure naming opportunities, for gift levels of $1 million and above, not otherwise available to them as individuals. This is a wonderful way to honor a loved one or your family name.
Indian Community Eastside (ICE) Group Gift Campaign
Donors affiliated with like-minded people may wish to join with their colleagues to make a Group Gift. Such a gift allows a number of gifts to be joined together to reach a gift level sufficient to obtain a significant naming opportunity. It also commemorates and celebrates the generosity of the affiliates, whether joined through professional ties, ethnicity, or geographic origin. Individuals participating at appropriate levels will be recognized for their gifts, in addition to the recognition the entity receives.
Planned gifts are greatly encouraged and are viewed as among the strongest statements of support for Tateuchi Center. Planned gifts typically come from a donor’s assets rather than income, and can be either outright or deferred. Planned giving possibilities include: direct transfers of various assets, bequests, beneficiary designations, charitable trusts, and other arrangements. Planned gifts are typically designated to the Endowment Campaign and are a great way to support the Center in the future. Some gift vehicles, like a Charitable Lead Trust, may be appropriate for making a gift to the Capital Campaign for bricks and mortar.
Making a planned gift can be as simple as including a charitable bequest for Tateuchi Center in your will. We will recognize all donors who indicate that they have included Tateuchi Center in their estate plans by including them in the Twenty-First Century Society, inscribing their names on a special donor wall and providing them with special acknowledgements and benefits.
Remember, with a well-structured planned gift you may be able to:
Increase your annual income;
Receive an immediate income tax deduction;
Avoid the tax on capital gains in appreciated assets; and
Receive an estate or gift tax deduction.
In any case, you will create a lasting legacy for Tateuchi Center and the future of the arts and arts education in our community.
The annual earnings of the Endowment established during the Tateuchi Center Campaign will generate income to help sustain Center operations. The Tateuchi Center Endowment is intended to fund special programming and public benefit initiatives; to supplement our budget during a weak economy; or to be reinvested for growth whenever possible. Outright or planned gifts may be designated to the Endowment Campaign and help to ensure a stable, secure future. Also, a minimum gift of $50,000 can be used to establish a named endowed fund.
PACE manages its endowment for the support of Tateuchi Center through policies established by the Board of Directors. Earnings from endowment investments may support operations and programs in accordance with donor-imposed restrictions. In addition to the restricted-use endowment gifts we receive, unrestricted endowment gifts provide maximum flexibility in their use. PACE’s investment objectives are to manage contributions in a manner that will produce current income to support various programs of Tateuchi Center, thereby maximizing the benefits intended by donors, and to achieve the growth of both principal value and income over time, sufficient to preserve or increase the purchasing power of the endowment and protect against inflation.
