Year-End Tax Planning

As the 2015 tax year comes to a close, you may be thinking of ways to leverage year-end giving to save taxes. We hope you consider Pacific Crest as you make your year-end plans. You can make a gift by mail, online, or even by donating stock.


Online Donations
You can make a gift via our secure online giving form.
DONATE: Make a Gift Online –>


Give by Mail
Make your check payable to Pacific Crest and mail to: Pacific Crest, PO Box 5409, Diamond Bar, CA, 91765. Please be sure to date your check December 31, 2015, or earlier, and make sure your envelope is postmarked before January 1, 2016.


Donations of Stock
Pacific Crest accepts donations of stock. Some people hold stock from an inheritance; some have experienced good fortune with their investments. Either way, donating stock instead of cash provides a double-benefit by avoiding capital gains tax while enjoying the tax deduction for that gift.

If you wish to donate stock, please email Stuart Pompel for details.
