Ways of Giving

Every gift is important to the success of the campaign to build Tateuchi Center. This is a broad community effort to create a legacy for future generations.

It will take all of us to create a cultural center that’s for everyone. Like schools and roads and hospitals, it will serve us all and is only possible if we all join forces to make it happen.

Immediate Gifts

A gift of cash is the simplest and most direct means of contributing to the Tateuchi Center Campaign. Donations by check (made payable to either “PACE” or “Tateuchi Center”) are welcome. Gifts made by credit card are accepted via the secure online form below using Visa, MasterCard, or 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. Please contact Roxanne Shepherd, Campaign Director, for more information.

Gifts of Security

A gift of appreciated securities may be more favorable as a tax deduction than a cash donation. Publicly traded stocks, bonds, mutual fund shares, and certain other securities can be donated to the Tateuchi Center Campaign. The considerations involved in transferring and valuing each type of security vary. Please contact Roxanne Shepherd, Campaign Director, for more information.

Matching Gifts

Many employers offer matching gift programs for charitable contributions by employees and retirees. Matching programs may enable donors to double or triple the amount of their contribution to the Tateuchi Center Campaign.

Family Gifts

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, which might not otherwise be possible for them as individuals. This is a wonderful way to honor a loved one or your family name.

Group Gifts

Donors affiliated with like-minded people may wish to join with their colleagues to make a Group Gift. Such a collaboration 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, fraternal organizations, or national origin. Individuals participating at appropriate levels will be recognized for their gifts, in addition to the recognition the group receives.

Planned Gifts

The term “planned gifts” refers to a range of vehicles through which charitably minded individuals, couples, and families can make an indelible mark on their communities and the nonprofit organizations about which they care most deeply. Often these provide significant current and/or estate tax benefits. Please contact Campaign Director Roxanne Shepherd for a completely confidential, no-obligation conversation about how one of these options might help you achieve your personal financial planning objectives while simultaneously establishing a meaningful legacy at the Eastside’s new cultural home. (Please note that such a conversation does not substitute for a consultation with your own professional advisors, which is highly recommended.)
