Community Conscience houses 13 non-profits rent-free, saving them a combined $300,000 per year. This savings in rent has enabled them to keep their doors open, providing exceptional programs to hundreds of thousands in need over the past three decades.

None of this is possible without your charitable donations and dedication to the underserved in the Conejo Valley.

Commemorative Brick Campaign

Please support our Commemorative Bricks project. With the words you choose to have engraved on these bricks, you can honor and remember ones you love and celebrate those who are important to you. They also make great holiday and birthday presents. By purchasing an engraved brick, you will be leaving a highly visible legacy at our building, the Human Services Center, located at 80 E Hillcrest Drive, Thousand Oaks.

In Honor & Memorial Gifts

Your charitable gift is given to honor someone or perpetuate the memory of a loved one. Following this donation, a letter will be sent to the person or family you designate to notify them of your caring contribution. The amount of the gift is always confidential.

Matching Gifts

Double or triple your gift through your company matching gift programs for employees and retirees. To find out if your employer has a matching gift program, speak to the Human Resources Department and ask them to identify Community Conscience as the recipient.

Stock Donations

Contribute stock that has appreciated in value and receive a tax deduction for the full market value. This can eliminate the capital gains taxes you would have incurred from a routine stock sale. The stocks must have been held by you for at least one year. If you own stocks or other investments that have decreased in value, you could sell them and donate the proceeds. You may be able to deduct the loss from other income for additional tax savings. Together the two deductions may be worth more than the current value of the investment. *

Real Estate Donations

Gift a second home or other real estate to Community Conscience either outright or by bequest. You can preserve your cash assets, receive significant tax and income advantages and make a charitable gift at the same time. The gift of a 'Charitable Remainder Trust' of your property allows you to continue to live in the residence for the rest of your life. *

Tax-Deferred Retirement Plans and Life Insurance Policies

Donating retirement assets is one of the best ways to avoid costly income and estate taxes for your heirs. Naming Community Conscience as a beneficiary (or contingent beneficiary after the death of your spouse) of all or a specified percentage of any retirement plan assets can save your estate both income and federal estate taxes. You may also designate Community Conscience as the sole, partial or contingent beneficiary of a new life insurance policy or one you and your family no longer require. *
