” Let Your Gift Say “I’ll Remember You”

When someone who has touched your life passes away, you typically may send flowers to mark our remembrance of the person’s life. But here is a lasting way to say “I’ll remember you.”

  • Securities
    Stock that has increased in value is one of the most popular assets used for charitable giving, once it has been held for more than one year. Making a gift of securities to us offers you the chance to help our organization while realizing many important benefits for yourself. 
  • Retirement Plan Assets
    Do you have money saved in an employee retirement plan, IRA or tax-sheltered annuity? Each of these retirement plan assets contains income that has yet to be taxed. Your beneficiaries will owe the income tax at your death, totaling up to 35 percent, which may be reason enough to consider giving your loved ones less heavily taxed assets and leaving your retirement plan assets to charity instead.
  • Savings Bonds
    Savings bonds—likely the nation’s most widely held appreciated asset—represent major assets that may have stopped growing and are now collecting dust, just waiting to be put to use. A tax-wise use for your appreciated savings bonds is to support a cause you care about.
  • Real Estate
    Your property opens the door to a unique giving opportunity. From townhomes to farmland, many types of real estate assets can be donated to qualified charitable organizations like ours. You’ll be helping a good cause, enjoying tax benefits and potentially setting up a lifetime stream of income.
  • Closely Held Stock
    A donation of your closely held stock can be a fine way for you to make a sizable charitable contribution while realizing valuable tax benefits.
  • Life Insurance
    Most of us think of life insurance as protection, especially for our loved ones. But it is also a powerful tool you can use to champion our work far into the future. Here’s what you need to know.
  • Life Insurance Death Benefits
    Your need for life insurance changes as time passes, making way for a new opportunity for its use. If you no longer need the coverage to protect your loved ones, consider changing your policy’s beneficiary to support our work.

How It Works
To make a charitable bequest, you need a current will or revocable living trust.

Your gift can be made as a percentage of your estate. Or you can make a specific bequest by giving a certain amount of cash, securities or property. After your lifetime, Justin-Siena High School Foundation receives your gift.

A Gift in Your Will: Getting Started

We hope you’ll consider including a gift to Filipino-American Magtinabangay Foundation, Inc. – FAMFI in your will or living trust. Called a charitable bequest, this type of gift offers these main benefits:

  • Simplicity. Just a few sentences in your will or trust are all that is needed. “I give, devise, and bequeath to the Filipino-American Magtinabangay Foundation, Inc. – FAMFI, located in Napa, California, the sum of ________dollars ($________), OR ________percent (______%) of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate OR the following described property: _______________________________  for the benefit of its general purposes (or specify the program you wish to support).”
  • Flexibility. Because you are not actually making a gift until after your lifetime, you can change your mind at any time.
  • Versatility. You can structure the bequest to leave a specific item or amount of money, make the gift contingent on certain events, or leave a percentage of your estate to us.
  • Tax Relief. Your estate is entitled to an estate tax1 charitable deduction for the gift’s full value.

Volunteer!

FAMFI welcomes volunteers!

If you are between 13 and 95 years old – we want you!

Volunteers are the backbone of every community. We welcome volunteers and have a great variety of volunteer opportunities from one-time projects to ongoing assistance with medical and dental missions, sports activities,  feeding program, data entry, bulk mail, and much more.

What is Volunteering means?

In general terms, volunteering is the practice of people working on behalf of others or a particular cause without payment for their time and services.

Volunteering is generally considered an altruistic activity, intended to promote good or improve human quality of life, but people also volunteer for their own skill development, to meet others, to make contacts for possible employment, to have fun, and a variety of other reasons that could be considered self-serving.

Volunteering takes many forms and is performed by a wide range of people. Many volunteers are specifically trained in the areas they work in, such as  medicine, education or  emergency rescue.  Other volunteers serve on an as-needed basis, such as in response to a natural disaster or for a beach-cleanup.

Help us discover the best way to put your talents to use. If you would like more information about our volunteer program, please contact one of our locations by phone or e-mail.

While many of our friends around the world share their material possessions with our FAMFI’s children and their family, many others share themselves– their time, energy and skills. Others help organize events and contribute their professional knowledge and expertise.

A Volunteer’s Prayer

Thank you, Lord Jesus, for calling me to serve others in Your Name.
I want to offer my time and talents generously that I might
do my best for those who need me.
Help me to remember that what I do for others I do for You.
May every act of service I do reflect my faith in You,
and may my love and understanding be a true sign
of  Your deep love and compassion.
Strengthen me, Dear Savior, to say “yes” to all that you ask of me this day.
Let me serve you well and offer to all I meet
the gifts that you have given me.
I ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen


How can we expect our children to know and experience the joy of giving unless we teach them that the greater pleasure in life lies in the art of giving rather than receiving.
- James Cash Penny

Volunteers aren’t paid, not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless.  - Anonymous

You must give some time to your fellow men. Even if it’s a little thing, do something others – something for which you get no pay but privilege of doing it. – Albert Schweitzer

Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nation’s compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain love for one another. - Erma Bombeck

Everyone can be great because anyone can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t even have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve… You only need a heart full  of grace. A soul generated by love…   – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.  – Winston Churchil

I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now.  Let me not defer or neglect it,  for I shall not pass this way again.   - Mahatma Gandhi

Volunteering can be an exciting, growing, enjoyable experience. It is truly gratifying to serve a cause, practice one’s ideals, work with people, solve problems, see benefits, and know one had a hand in them.   - Harriet Naylor

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean, but the ocean would be less because of that missing drop. We can do no great things, only small things with great love. - Mother Teresa

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.  - Margaret Mead
