[fancy_header]Help Us Change Lives[/fancy_header]
[fancy_box][dropcap1]T[/dropcap1]he Greater Toledo Urban League has helped many disadvantaged people over the years. 2010 has been no different, store and we’re eager to tell you more about how we’ve worked diligently, to ensure that numerous others would have a year filled with inspiration, success and change!
For starters, the Urban League has strengthened its focus on improving education in Northwest Ohio. This move officially recognizes something we have known all along, that our efforts in every other area of our mission – workforce development, health, civil rights and civic engagement – mean nothing if our youngest citizens are growing up without the basic skills to function effectively in society.
Second, the Urban League has undertaken a targeted effort to advocate for issues that are critical to the social and economic well-being of every person in Northwest Ohio. This means that we’ll work proactively with other organizations to address specific concerns in the community and apply what we’ve learned from direct experience about the issues.
It’s true, the promise of these initiatives has invigorated our work and created excitement among staff and supporters. For the last 14 years, the Urban League has worked to improve the social and economic conditions of disadvantaged and underserved people in Northwest Ohio and, thanks to the new focus, the future looks bright.
[info_box]Now here’s the best part: you can impact the future by making an investment in the Urban League. As a non-profit organization, the Urban League relies completely on charitable support to carry out its mission. Your gift will help provide direct services and advocate for a better way of life in Northwest Ohio.[/info_box]

Ways to Give to
The Greater Toledo Urban League
Friends of the Greater Toledo Urban League who wish to make a contribution are encouraged to consider the following options:
Cash is often the most convenient form of giving. Cash gifts are fully deductible for federal income tax purposes, provided deductions are itemized.
Pledges enable a donor to plan a personal giving program that is both convenient and tax-wise. A pledge may enable a donor to consider a more significant gift than would have been otherwise possible. Terms for payment on pledges are flexible and at the option of the donor.
Securities may be made as outright gifts or as a payment on a pledge. Stock certificates may be reassigned directly to the Greater Toledo Urban League or may be transferred through the donor’s broker. The mean market value on the date of the transfer will determine the value of the gift for tax purposes. It is best to consult with the External Affairs Office before a transaction is made. For general questions on securities callJohn Jones at 419-243-3343 or send an email to email@example.com.
Gifts of appreciated securities may be tax deductible, up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income. The deduction is based on the full fair market value, and capital gains tax is not due when the stock is transferred to the League.
In certain instances, it may be preferable from an estate, financial and tax planning perspective to consider long-term planning giving as the best way to make a gift. This can be accomplished through various gift instruments, such as charitable reminder trusts, gift annuities, charitable lead trusts, and bequests. For more information on planned giving, please contact John Jones at 419-243-3343 or send an email firstname.lastname@example.org.
