You Can Make a Difference
Pacific Clinics is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and your tax-deductible gifts help provide housing assistance, employment services, substance abuse treatment, and more, in addition to high-quality, professional mental health treatment to the poor and low-income people who come to us in need.
Your gift today can help . . .
. . . a child who has seen too much learn how to giggle and play again.
. . . a lost eighteen year old who has aged out of the foster system to find a place to call home, and friends to call a family.
. . . a young woman with schizophrenia to finally get the right medication and treatment, and a community of people who understand what she is going through.
. . . a soldier returning from Afghanistan to recover from post-traumatic stress syndrome and to reconnect with his wife and children.
. . . a senior with severe depression to overcome her fear of doctors and receive life-saving medical treatment for her diabetes and high-blood pressure.
Your gift has an immediate and lasting impact!
During our 90th Anniversary Match Challenge, every dollar you give will be matched – up to a total of $25,000!
- $25 will double to $50 toward peer support to help people with mental illness learn how to manage their condition.
- $50 will double to $100 and can help provide food, clothing and services for young adults who are homeless, aged out of the foster care system, dealing with mental illness or otherwise struggling with the transition to adulthood.
- $100 will double to $200 to help keep people with mental illness in housing and off the streets.
This holiday season you can give a gift of hope and healing. Please take a moment today to double your impact by giving to the 90th Anniversary Match Challenge. You’ll know that you are making a real impact for someone who needs your compassion.
Other Ways You Can Help
Many companies will match the charitable donations made by their employees. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of the employee’s gift!
If your employer has a matching gifts program for its employees, find out whether they will match donations made to Pacific Clinics. If so, please complete and mail your company's matching gifts form to:
Donor Development Department
800 South Santa Anita Avenue, 2nd Floor

Both your contribution and the matching gift by your organization will be acknowledged.
If you have questions about matching gifts, please contact our Donor Development Department at (626) 254-5024.
"Planned giving" offers donors a way to make larger gifts than they could from their discretionary income by maximizing tax benefits. Some planned gifts even provide a life-long income to the donor; others use estate planning techniques to provide more for charity and other heirs.
Learn how a planned gift to Pacific Clinics may fit into your financial, tax, or estate goals.
If you have assets such as stocks, bonds, retirement accounts or real estate that have increased in value during the time you have owned them, you may want to use them to fund your charitable gifts this year. Congress and many states have provided valuable tax incentives for gifts of assets other than cash.
When you give stock that you have owned longer than one year, you are entitled to an income tax deduction for the full value of the asset, not just the amount you paid for it. All capital gains that would be due on the sale are avoided. You are allowed to use the "profits" in your investment to reduce the amount of income tax you might owe.
You may deduct gifts of appreciated assets each year in an amount up to 30% of your adjusted gross income. As with cash gifts, you can use any excess deduction in as many as five tax years.
For guidance on your particular situation, we suggest that you consult with your independent financial, tax, or legal advisor.
Please notify your bank or broker and Vice President of Development, Kym Pietsch, at (626) 254-5020 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
