A Home of our Own

August 1, 2019

Dear Friends and Players

 
 
Construction of the Duncan Bridge Center in the Wernick Family Building is on track and completion is anticipated by mid November. This has been the goal of the Coachella Valley Bridge Foundation (CVBF) ever since Ray and Jan Duncan envisioned a "home of our own."  Because the center is run by volunteers, card fees had generated $380,000 in revenue for the "Building Fund"; this plus your donations resulted in a total amount raised of $1,000,000+. 
 

Now comes a new goal!  We will have a loan from Bob Wernick for the balance of the cost of the building.  We will strive to pay him back as soon as possible.  When this has been paid off, CVBF will be in a position to lower card fees and bring affordable bridge to many more players.  We are dedicated to bridge instruction and will have a dedicated class room. Thanks to all of you who have given already.  If you have not donated to the CVBF, please consider doing so, so that others may continue to learn and enjoy the game.

Donations may be made payable to CVBF, c/o Brackett, 1595 S. San Joaquin Drive, Palm Springs, CA  92264

Sincerely,
The CVBF Board of Directors

 

 

 

DONATIONS OF STOCK

As a 503(c)(3) organization your donations to Coachella Valley Bridge Foundation are deductible to the fullest extent of the law.  You might want to consider donating appreciated stock that has been held for at least one year.  In doing so your tax deduction is the fair market value of the stock on the date of donation (not what you paid for the stock).  You also avoid paying capital gains tax (usually 15% of the gain) if you transfer the stock directly to Coachella Valley Bridge Foundation (as opposed to selling it and donating the proceeds). 

Should you wish to donate stock to Coachella Valley Bridge Foundation the following information needs to be to be provided to your broker:

  • DTC # 0226
  • Fidelity Account # Z48-721996

Your contribution will go towards the construction of your new bridge center and would be most welcome.  Make personal checks payable to CVBF, c/o Guy Brackett, 1595 S. San Joaquin Drive, Palm Springs, CA  92246.
