Holiday Giving to Landmark West!

Dear Friend of LANDMARK WEST!:

If Leif Parson’s fun illustration looks familiar, you’ve probably received a copy of LW’s year-end fundraising letter in the mail.

Before you pop your check into the mail (and even if you already have), here are some suggestions of ways you can support LW!—and check one more thing off your 2007 to-do list!

· Use your IRA to contribute: Under the new IRA rollover rules, taxpayers older than 70 ½ can transfer IRA funds directly to LW!. The Pension Protection Act allows supporters to make gifts of up to $100,000 in 2007. This law is set to expire at the end of 2007, so act quickly!

· Make a gift of stock: LW! can accept gifts of stocks, bond, and other negotiable securities. Please call us for instructions.

· Use your credit card to contribute: Please call us at 212-496-8110 and, in just a few quick steps, we can process your credit card gift. It’s the “green” way to give – no paper involved!

· Give a matching gift: Make your contribution go even further. Ask your employer about its matching gift program.

Thank you very much for your continued friendship and support. Together, we can save the Best of the West!

Best wishes for the New Year,

Arlene Simon Kate Wood
President Executive Director
