You can contribute to SVSLA in many ways.  Local residents, businesses, and community owners can now donate monies, materials and goods related to SVSLA‘s mission and receive applicable tax benefits. Monetary contributions are used for smaller projects or as seed money to make it easier to obtain grants from large organizations for more ambitious projects. The donor may designate that their donation be used specifically to support a project of that donor’s choosing. Any amount shows you support SVSLA‘s mission.

Non-monetary donations must support the SVSLA mission and an organization must be identified that is willing to take ownership of the donation and maintain it for use by seniors in the area. If you have questions, please send us an email message.

SVSLA is a nonprofit public benefit association organized under California Code section 18000, for charitable purposes and is recognized by the United States Internal Revenue Service as exempt from Federal income tax under section 501(c)(3). Our Federal EIN is 26-4549259.

Add a Bequest to your Will

A bequest is a gift specified in your will or living trust. A charitable bequest to a non-profit organization such as Scotts Valley Senior Life Association offers a tax deduction of the bequest amount against the value of an estate, making it a powerful tool for reducing estate tax, while at the same time providing education and support relating to the health and welfare of senior citizens in the area of Scotts Valley, California.

Some people are hesitant to donate to a non-profit organization during their lifetime because they are concerned they may need their money for medical expenses, emergencies, or to help their children.

You can comfortably donate to SVSLA by designating money or other assets that remain available when you no longer need them by specifying what you wish to contribute in your will or living trust. Some people without close heirs use this type of bequest to donate a large part of their estate to a non-profit organization.

One common approach is to leave specific or demonstrative bequests to family members or other individuals, and then leave a residuary bequest to a charitable organization (a gift made after all the estate’s debts and expenses and other bequests are paid).

To make a bequest to Scotts Valley Senior Life Association or to establish a perpetual memorial fund, your official bequest language must include:

  • » SVSLA’s legal name:  Montevalle Community Life (dba Scotts Valley Senior Life Association)
  • » SVSLA’s legal address:  PO Box 66438, Scotts Valley, CA 95067-6438
  • » SVSLA’s Federal Tax ID:  26-4549259

Your estate attorney can assist you to create a charitable bequest to SVSLA in your will or living trust.
