Yoga on the Lawn with Elizabeth Shelhart

Socially-Distanced Outdoor Yoga
on Wednesday evenings

Open to All Levels

Elizabeth Shelhart has been teaching yoga since 2001 and specializes in offering a gentle, slow-paced yoga class geared towards all levels of experience. Practicing outside offers the chance to connect with the beauty of the gardens as we breathe the fresh air and come together to honor each other and the Earth. Elizabeth will also weave in a short, calming guided meditation practice at the beginning of class. Please arrive a few minutes early to settle in. Modifications will be offered for those with limitations. No hands-on assists or adjustments from the instructor.  Please skip class if you are feeling unwell or have been exposed.

Please bring: a yoga mat or towel, a cushion to sit on for meditation, and a water bottle
Optional: yoga block, strap, sunhat (bring what you need as we will not be providing props)

Online pre-registration is required (you may sign up at any time). Use Laurel Grove Entrance for parking lot access.

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.
