Out in the Bay is a lean operation. Your TAX-DEDUCTIBLE donation by Dec. 31* will truly make a difference in Out in the Bay continuing to be here, sharing LGBT stories with the world every week, and could reduce your 2014 tax bill. We have non-profit 501(c)(3) status through Media Alliance. We receive no financial help from NPR nor from KALW, our host station.
MATCHING MONEY: Many companies match employee charitable contributions – wouldn’t you love to have your boss help pay for queer radio?! Ask your supervisor or HR department; you may have matching money that will expire Dec. 31!* Or ask us, we have a list of some of the companies that match employee donations.
*You may still be able to make a 2014 donation after Dec. 31. For arrangements, email OutintheBay@yahoo.com, or phone 510-816-0450.
Experts help couples weigh the pros and cons of getting married by year-end. Just because it’s now legal for same-sex couples to marry in California and many other states, and the federal government must recognize those marriages, should you? There are financial advantages for some to get hitched by Dec. 31, but disadvantages for others, and there are many other potential risks and benefits. Eric Jansen’s guests are tax lawyer Chuck Teixeira and family law attorney Emily Doskow, who advises all couples to have pre-nuptial agreements. 7pm Thursday, Dec. 19, www.kalw.org +91.7 FM SF Bay Area.
