Ask your company about a matching gift program! Many employers match donations made by their employees, so that your contribution to East West Players will be doubled through your employer. Our matching gift partners include Amgen, Boeing, Tyco, Bank of America, Google, LA Times, Mattel, Inc., Union Bank, California Community Foundation, Walt Disney Company, and more.

To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, just contact your employer’s human resources or community relations department and ask about a matching gift form — then designate East West Players as your charity.

Stocks and bonds can be one of the most cost-effective ways to make a gift.

Tax law generally allows deduction of the current market value of long-term assets (held longer than one year) donated to a charity. For example, if you purchased a stock at $1,000 more than one year ago, and it has appreciated to a current value of $5,000, it can generally be deducted for the full $5,000 value if donated to a charity. In contrast, if you sell the stock first, and donate the resulting cash proceeds, tax could be incurred on the realized gain.

Of course, this should not be considered legal or tax advice. Please consult your tax advisor for details.
