Ways to Give
Our mission is to foster healthy communities within the San Geronimo Valley and Nicasio by providing an inclusive, diverse, and dynamic center for locally based human services, arts and culture, education, health and wellness, and community building.
“Giving has made me feel much more a part of what feels to me like family. I have gained such wonderful friends in the staff and volunteer base, as well as getting to know many in the community better. Giving allows me to really see the scope and vision that the Center encompasses.”

Ted Wright

Ted and his wife April Wolcott donate through a family foundation and through a qualified charitable distribution from an IRA account to support the annual Peace Festival and general operations.

Qualified Charitable Distributions

For individuals 70½ years or older, a Qualified Charitable Distribution may enable you to support our work AND receive tax benefits in return. Please consider using your IRA account to make the most of your charitable giving this year!  It’s important to consider your tax situation before making a charitable contribution from your IRA. Be sure to review your plans with your financial advisor.

“When I contribute to the happiness and well-being of others, I find my own path to happiness and well-being.”
