Planned Giving


Gifts of stock and bequests are excellent means of contributing to YES. Your tax adviser or legal expert can offer further insight into the tax benefits of these gifts.

Appreciated Stock:
Contact YES and we will help you transfer a stock. You may be eligible for an additional tax deduction for giving stock that is worth more now than when you paid for it.

Proceeds of Depreciated Stock:
If you own depreciated stock, you may benefit more by selling the stock and donating the proceeds to us. Selling depreciated stock may entitle you to an additional tax deduction.

Estate Planning:
Include Youth Emergency Services of Omaha in your estate plans. Your gift can change the future for our community. Contact us for estate planning materials.
