Contributions to the Susan C. Luby Scholarship Fund

In memory of Susan C. Luby, a Girls Inc. founder and devoted advocate for the Carpinteria Valley’s girls. Susan Luby believed that all girls – regardless of their financial situation – should be able to access the wonderful enrichment programs that Girls Inc. offers. It is Susan’s legacy that no girl ever be turned away because of a lack of funds, and therefore Girls Inc. is able to “make up the difference” and ask families to pay only what they can reasonably afford.

Sponsorship

Girls Inc. has a variety of opportunities for individuals or businesses to directly sponsor a girl or program. For example, you could “adopt” a girl by covering her program expenses and field trip fees for a pre-determined amount of time (about two-thirds of our girls come from financially disadvantaged families). Or, you could sponsor one of the many exciting programs that Girls Inc. offers, like woodworking, cooking, drama or volleyball. If you’d like more information, please contact Pam Knitowski at 805-684-6364 x25 or pam@girlsinc-carp.org

A Permanent Investment in the Girls of Carpinteria Valley

Why not make a gift that gives back to you, your family, and your community? With planned giving, you can achieve personal and financial goals while leaving a legacy that will benefit the only organization in the Carpinteria Valley that offers all-girl programming, giving girls a variety of opportunities that do not exist elsewhere!

A planned gift is a gift of capital, which unlike your annual gift to Girls Inc., is not usually made from your current income. Planned gifts can be given immediately (such as a gift of stock), or deferred (such as a bequest or life insurance policy).

We would be delighted to discuss your planned giving options. However, we do encourage you to contact your attorney or financial advisor first to obtain information about how planned giving will affect your specific financial situation.

For more information, please contact Pam Knitowski at 805-684-6364 x25 or pam@girlsinc-carp.org

Congress just passed legislation that allows individuals to make tax-free from your IRA. To benefit you must be at least 70 1/2 and it applies only to IRAs. The law is limited to $100,000 in 2007.
