Planned Gifts & Bequests
Planned gifts and bequests allow you to support the Gretna Public School’s mission while receiving financial and tax benefits. Giving options range from naming the Gretna Public Schools Foundation as a beneficiary in your will to more complex arrangements. If you have questions about planned gifts and bequests, please contact Holly Radke at 402-332-3265.
Gifts of Securities
In most cases, a gift of appreciated securities entitles the individual to an income tax charitable deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the effective date of the gift. The donor avoids the capital gains tax that would be due if he or she sold the stock. When making a gift of securities, the individual should transfer ownership of the stock to the Foundation. It is imperative that appreciated stocks are not sold when the intent is to make a gift of securities. Before you transfer the securities, please contact Holly Radke at 402-332-3265.
