#GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy with events throughout the year and a growing catalog of resources.
The San José Peace and Justice Center is participating in #GivingTuesday to continue to be a resource to the local grassroots organizations that operate through the center and to communities in the South Bay. For the first time, we are joining in with #GivingTuesday to help our year-end fundraising efforts. This year we pledge to give peace and invite each of you to join us. Stay tuned for more activities. Please click the large "DONATE" button on the right panel to donate online in order to provide these resources to the community. (You do not have to wait for November 28th.)
You can also mail in your year-end donations to: San Jose Peace & Justice Center, 48 S. 7th Street, San Jose, CA 95112.
Please consider a bequest to SJPJC as part of your estate plan. There's no minimum amount required. In fact, you can specify any dollar amount, leave a percentage of your estate, or designate what remains after your estate has been settled. Here's some sample language:
I give Collins Foundation / San Jose Peace & Justice Center, a California non-profit corporation (Tax ID 77-008356), $_______ or _____% of my estate or ____% of the residue of my estate.
I intend this gift to be used for an endowment that will support the Peace & Justice Center in perpetuity OR I intend this gift to be used at the Board of Directors' discretionRead more...
If you have an old car to donate...
Turn that jalopy into a tax-deductible donation to the Peace and Justice Center. We'll take it and transform it into funds that we'll use to make the world a better place!
Call the donate-a-car program at 1-800-513-6560. Tell them that your donation should benefit the Collins Foundation /SJPJC, Tax ID # 77-0083506. They will pick up your car for free, running or not.
Gertrude Welch was known to many of us in the South Bay for her devotion to peace and justice activities. When she and her husband George died in 2007 they remembered eight organizations in their will.
The San Jose Peace and Justice Center's share was $59,510. This wonderful gift will form the basis of an endowment fund for the future of the Center.
