The Laguna Beach Community Foundation offers a sackful of charities worthy of gifts to wrap up the holiday season.
Donors can establish a new fund to connect their charitable giving with their passions and interests and obtain a tax deduction for 2011. The donor can make recommendations for future charitable distributions to any nonprofit.
The foundation suggests giving a unique gift to friends and loved ones by making a tax-deductible donation in their name to various charities, such as the One World One Ocean Foundation Fund, Glenwood House Fund, a local Disaster Fund, Claes Anderson Hospitality Scholarship Fund or the community foundation’s next year grants program.
To donate, make your check to LBCF and the name of the fund above and mail to Laguna Beach Community Foundation, PO Box 1628, Laguna Beach, CA 92652. For more information, contact Darrcy Loveland, President and CEO, at 949-715-8223.
