With a gift to the Mimi Fariña Heritage Society you will be leaving a legacy of compassion for years to come. You may also enjoy significant tax benefits by including Bread & Roses in your estate planning. Your financial and legal advisors can provide guidance as to the most appropriate legacy gift for you. Among the planned gifts we encourage you to consider making to Bread & Roses are:
- Gifts of Cash
- Gifts of Securities
- Gifts of Retirement Plan Assets
- Gifts of Savings Bonds
- Gifts of Real Estate
- Gifts of Closely Held Stock
- Gifts of Life Insurance
Although there are many forms bequests can take, the following are among the most common:
A percentage of the estate:
"I give and bequeath to Bread & Roses, a California nonprofit organization located in Corte Madera, California, _________% of my estate."
A residual bequest:
"All the residue of my estate [or __% of the residual of my estate], including real and personal property, I give and bequeath to Bread & Roses, a California nonprofit organization located in Corte Madera, California."
A fixed amount of money or a designated property:
"I give and bequeath to Bread & Roses, a California nonprofit organization located in Corte Madera, California, $_________" (or describe the real or personal property, including exact location).
A Charitable Remainder Trust:
You can provide a family member or friend with income for life through a special gift to Bread & Roses. You can do this by establishing a charitable remainder trust either during your lifetime or, through your will, on your death. The trust pays income to the person you designate. After that person's death, whatever remains in the trust passes to Bread & Roses.

Bread & Roses cannot and does not provide legal advice. Always consult an attorney when preparing legal documents.
By giving appreciated property like stocks or bonds, donors can avoid paying capital gains taxes on the appreciation, receive a tax deduction for the full value of the gift, and support Bread & Roses.
When Bread & Roses receives a stock gift, our policy is to sell the stock as near as possible to the date of the gift. If you wish to donate stock, please use the following procedure:
Notify your broker (preferably in writing for your records) that you are making a charitable gift of stock to Bread & Roses. Either instruct your broker to transfer the stock into our account at Charles Schwab and provide him/her with our Schwab Account and DTC # below, or instruct him/her to contact us directly notifying us of your gift. When your broker contacts us, we will instruct him/her to transfer the stock into our Charles Schwab account.

|2011 Financial Review|
|2011 IRS Form 990|
|Finance/Review Committee: The Board Finance Committee is comprised of independent board members who are not on staff and includes a minimum of one finance professional at all times. This committee also serves as the Audit/Review Committee. The Finance Committee is directly responsible for overseeing the auditor/reviewer’s activities. It also sets rules and processes for internal control practices. In California, the Nonprofit Integrity Act of 2004 requires that any charity registered with the attorney general and receiving annual gross revenues of $2 million or more must form an audit committee. Although Bread & Roses does not meet that $2 million threshold requirement, we voluntarily undergo an independent third-party financial review each year.|
