Opening Reception: Julia Pozsgai in The Shop

Join us for a reception with artist Julia Pozgai, whose work is featured in a new display at The Shop.

Creative since her teenage years, Julia studied 3D art and furniture making at Autistry in San Rafael and later enrolled in art classes with Alchemia in Petaluma where she became the first artist-in-residence with a focus on painting, textiles and ceramics.

In 2014, Julia started her own art business and studio, Pansy Creations, in Sonoma with the support of Casa Allegra Community Services of Marin and its special program to assist young entrepreneurs in learning about business. This program offers the support of mentors to further refine skills for art and business. Mary Neuer Lee works with Julia in metal and jewelry arts, Merryl Latini with fiber arts and trashion fashion design, and Camille LaPointe-Lyons teaches Julia color theory.

IRS Guidelines for Gifts from Donor Advised Funds to Support MAGC Events

Thank you for your interest in giving to the Marin Art & Garden Center events from your Donor Advised Fund (DAF) or Family Foundation.

We sincerely appreciate your generosity and support!

To ensure your gift follows the current IRS guidelines for DAF/Family Foundation support of an event, we would like to share the below guidelines with you.

  • Raffle tickets, tickets to galas and other special events, auction items, and benefits conferred in connection with a DAF/foundation grant are not permitted.
    • IRS has specifically ruled that fair market value associated with fundraising events cannot be separated, a practice known as “bifurcation.”
      • For example, with Edible Garden, if the price of the ticket is $200 and the FMV fair market value (non-tax-deductible amount) is designated to be $50, the donor must pay from sources other than her DAF/foundation for the full value of the ticket ($200) and not just for the non-tax-deductible amount ($50).
    • We recommend you confer with your financial advisor to confirm if any of these examples of how donors may still use their DAF to support an event would work for you:
      • A donor could sponsor the event, and not attend, and pay fully out of the DAF/foundation.
      • A donor could sponsor the event using DAF/foundation funds and attend by purchasing an individual ticket through non-DAF/foundation funds.
      • A donor could sponsor the event, join the event as a guest of another donor/table guest, and pay fully out of the DAF/foundation.
      • A donor could sponsor the event and host the afforded number of people at their chosen level as long as they pay for the seats at the lowest ticket price ($200 for Edible Garden) outside of their DAF.
        • As an example, a $1,500 sponsor that covers 2 guests, could pay for their sponsorship with $400 from a different source of funds, and then give an additional gift of $1,100 out of their DAF.
