Will YOU help keep Lakeside's history alive for those who have yet to be a part of it?
Join us TOMORROW for #GivingTuesday as we transform our community by giving to the Lakeside Annual Fund which helps to ensure your ancestors of yesterday, your friends of today and your great grandchildren of tomorrow share the same Lakeside experiences.
Lakeside is so grateful for you this holiday season, and we hope that you and your family are staying healthy and well. As you finalize your personal finances for the calendar year, don’t forget that you can give back to Lakeside in ways that provide you substantial tax benefits.
Dramatically increase your contributions to Lakeside while giving yourself tax benefits:

Transfer Stock
A gift through broker-handled electronic transfers provides substantial tax benefits for you. By giving a stock gift to Lakeside, you not only get full credit for the stock gift, but you also do not have to pay taxes on the appreciated value of the stock. The Lakeside Chautauqua Foundation encourages broker-handled electronic transfers only. To transfer stock, first notify the Lakeside Chautauqua Foundation of your intent by completing and submitting a Stock Transfer Form. Please contact the Lakeside Chautauqua Foundation at (419) 798-4461, ext. 246 for the most up-to-date account information.
IRA Required Minimum Distribution (RMD)
If you are 72 years old, or older, you are required to take a distribution from your qualified retirement account. This is referred to as a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). With the recent changes in standard deductions, there can be a substantial tax benefit by making charitable deductions from your RMD. Please note that the checks must be made out directly to the charities from your IRA Trustee. Click here for more details and examples.
