Student Making Big Impact in Support of Literacy


What started as a conversation between a high school student and her mentor turned into a month-long fundraising effort that brought in monetary donations and donations of gently-used children’s books through the Geneva School of Boerne. Ava Ayers, a junior at Geneva, is passionate about children’s literacy. She was willing to put her voice and hard work behind that passion. Ava loves to give back to her community and when she learned about Boerne Reads, she knew it was an organization worth her time. Ava spoke to her school about the importance of strong reading skills, the reading gaps that children in poverty face, and the ways that Boerne Reads supports literacy with greater access to books. She solicited donations and encouraged families to donate their gently used children’s books. She also created t-shirts for sale that will become the official t-shirt of Boerne Reads. “Ava not only raised donations, but she also raised awareness for what we are doing,” said Dana Mathews, Board Chair for Boerne Reads. “We are receiving more requests for books from elementary school teachers, and we need help to fill that need. Ava lent her voice to help Boerne Reads and that is just incredible.” “I am so thankful that I was able to learn more about Boerne Reads and the programs they provide that positively impact so many children in our community,” said Ava. “I am also glad that I had the opportunity to increase awareness within the Geneva community as well as serve an organization whose mission is dear to my heart.” Boerne Reads is built on the principle of meeting children where they are. Children living in poverty and crisis have lower chances of having books in their homes than their peers. Through partnerships with other local organizations, Boerne Reads provides books that children can keep. Books are made available through local organizations, eliminating certain obstacles

Ava Ayers helped raise money and collected gently used books in support of Boerne Reads

families face to having books for their children. “Since 2016 we have distributed more than 30,000 books through various partner organizations,” said Sara Schmit, Program Director for Boerne Reads. “To see the children’s faces light up when they get a book they can keep helps us realize just how much of a gift a book can be. What’s hard to understand is that kids who are economically disadvantaged or who are living in crisis are more likely to have below grade level reading skills. Based on research, children who don’t read at grade level by the end of 3rd grade are likely never to catch up. Before COVID, Boerne Reads was distributing books through seven different service organizations, and we raised money to purchase books when we ran out of the gently used books the community donated,” said Sara. “Since March of 2020, we’ve struggled to raise the money needed to keep up with the demand for books. You can imagine our excitement when a young high school student reached out to help!” With more community awareness and involvement, Boerne Reads will be able to meet the growing demand for books and reading support. If you would like to join Boerne Reads in their mission, please visit You can also show support by visiting The Boerne Book Shop, donating your gently used children’s books, or signing up to be a volunteer.

A Guide to Tax-Smart Charitable Giving Your money can go further with these tax-efficient ways to give. Here are some ways to give back that are better than cash.

E by Catherine Currin

Even with the obstacles of the past few years, charitable giving is on the rise. In fact, The National Philanthropic Trust says that 86 percent of affluent households maintained or increased their giving in 2020, despite uncertainty about further spread of COVID-19. Charitable donations are up 5.1 percent overall, according to Giving USA. But we’re not just talking about simple cash donations. When it comes to giving, Eric Bailey, head of endowments and foundations at CAPTRUST, says he sees a focus on tax-efficient methods of giving. There are several ways to support a nonprofit and reap the tax benefits. “We’re initiating creative tactics with our wealth management clients who are thinking about a cash contribution,” Bailey says. “We’ll go through different scenarios to help the donor understand other ways to give, rather than just writing a check.”

Donating Appreciated Securities

Donating appreciated securities—stocks or bonds that have increased in value since purchase—can provide major benefits to both the donor and the nonprofit. “Gifting shares of a stock can be more efficient than writing a check,” Bailey says, “because the donated stock is typically free of capital gains taxes.” This could mean savings of tens of thousands of dollars of capital gains taxes, depending on the stock’s value, and could help maximize the value of your gift. For example, a stock with a current value of $50,000—originally purchased for $8,000—could result in $12,000 in capital gains taxes when sold (assuming a 28% tax rate), leaving only $38,000 for the nonprofit. But when the stock is donated instead of sold, capital gains tax is avoided on the gift, allowing the full $50,000 to help the nonprofit fulfill its mission. Donating appreciated securities can result in giving more money to the organizations you care about.

Donor-Advised Funds

When you donate money to a donor-advised fund (DAF), the funds are set aside in a 501(c)(3) account with a third party. The money is then available to distribute at your discretion to your charities of choice. The National Philanthropic Trust’s 2021 Donor-Advised Fund report notes that the number of DAFs has

increased 36.4 percent from 2016 to 2020. “A donor-advised fund is a qualifying charity, so you can immediately take that deduction before it’s distributed,” says Steve Morton, principal and financial advisor at CAPTRUST. Relocating assets like appreciated securities, property, or cash into a donor-advised fund—depending on the amount donated—may allow you to itemize deductions, which may lower your tax bill. With a DAF you can be more strategic by considering the timing of your donations to maximize your itemized deductions. Bunching charitable donations into a single year could provide an itemized deduction when you need it most. Then, the money is there to distribute on your time and at your discretion. “I find it easier to give from a donor-advised fund, because you don’t think about it as your money anymore,” says Bailey. Moving money into a DAF lets you take a charitable tax deduction of the donation’s full market value. It’s important to note that the amount of your donation’s deduction is based on your adjusted gross income (AGI), and any unused deduction can be carried up to five additional years. Donor-advised funds can be especially helpful for clients nearing retirement. “It could be beneficial to put assets into a DAF and take the tax deduction when you are at your highest earning potential,” says Morton, “typically when someone is close to retirement.” Morton says many of his clients like to make anonymous gifts. “With a donor-advised fund, the gift is acknowledged directly to the third party that holds the account. It’s much easier to make an anonymous gift that way.”

Qualified Charitable Distribution

Over 72 years old? If so, you must make annual withdrawals, known as required minimum distributions (RMDs), from your individual retirement account (IRA). Using your RMDs to fund qualified charitable distributions (QCDs) to your favorite charities is a tax-friendly method of giving, eliminating the income tax while simultaneously satisfying some or all of your yearly RMD. “Retirees typically don’t have a lot of itemized deductions. The standard deduction is so high that most can’t deduct their

bring these hormone levels back to an optimized level. charitable donations,” says Morton. Instead of a traditional charitable deduction, you can utilize QCDs in your tax-saving strategy. “Many clients aren’t ready at 72 to take their required distributions from their IRAs and don’t want to pay taxes on them. QCDs are an easy solution and something to consider.” Keep in mind that the 2022 maximum donation from your RMD is $100,000 per person, and the gift must come directly from the IRA to the charity.

This issue marks the beginning of Boerne Business Monthly’s 15th year! “When I think we have been publishing BBM for that long it is a little hard to believe. On one hand it feels like no time at all, and on the other hand it’s difficult to remember life without the magazine,” said Lauren Stumberg, owner/ publisher of Boerne Business Monthly. The very first issue of Boerne Business Monthly hit the

B oerne B usiness M onthly | July 2022

streets in July of 2007. According to Lauren, “From that first issue, BBM was really embraced by the local community. It seems like people enjoy reading about their friends and their neighbors in a positive, pro-Boerne publication. Now, 169 issues later we’re still going strong! In that time we have featured every kind of business imaginable. It really has been amazing to discover the many unique businesses that

we have here.” “Boerne has changed a lot over the past fifteen years. The population in 2007 was around 7,100, now we’re upwards of 19,000 and growing fast. That’s a lot of growth. Boerne has new people, new schools, new businesses, new buildings, new subdivisions. From a magazine standpoint, that’s exciting. All that new just means more things to talk about. But Boerne Business Monthly wasn’t created to only feature the most recent additions to the local business community. In fact, my goal with BBM has always been to keep the Boerne business community informed of current changes and growth by highlighting new and exciting businesses, while remembering the existing businesses that created the foundation for opportunity.” So how did Boerne Business Monthly come to be? While Stumberg would say that she didn’t necessarily see her career taking this particular path, the evolution of it makes perfect sense. “I love Boerne. I was born and raised here, graduated from Boerne High School, spent my childhood feeding the ducks, going to Berges Fest parades and swimming in the Boerne Pool. I’m one of those locals that reminisces about the good ole days eating at Beef N’ Brew. I love Mague’s tacos and I truly believe that nobody can make better broccoli and cheese soup or cheesecake than Bumdoodler’s. If you strike up a conversation with me, it’s highly likely that I will tell you that someone you mention is my cousin,” laughed Stumberg. “But also, I am genuinely interested in finding out about other people. I want to know what you do, why you do it, what your hobbies are. If there is something I learn that is interesting or exciting, I want to share that with others. So somewhere in there, my love of all things local and my need to know merged, and there you go, voilà – Boerne Business Monthly!” Between the articles, the advertisers, and even the readers, Stumberg feels blessed to have been able to meet and connect with so many people within our local community throughout the years. According to Lauren, “It is very rewarding when I hear how the magazine has positively impacted someone. It puts a smile on my face when I see people reading BBM at breakfast or when an advertiser calls to tell me about a call they got off of their ad. Being able to give these local small businesses the attention they deserve makes me happy!” continued on page 18

“Cheers BBM on your 15 Year Anniversary! I love this magazine because it’s so informative of what’s going on in the community and more so because it’s all good and positive news! My favorite issue of all time is January 2021 because it features Sort It Out’s 10 Year Anniversary milestone article. No surprise there! Here’s to many more issues in years to come!” – Esmi Gonzales, Sort It Out “It has been a pleasure to watch Lauren and BBM flourish and expand over the past 15 years. As an owner of an advertising agency, this is one of our “go-to” publications we recommend for marketing to our clients to get their message out in Boerne. From a personal standpoint, I love this magazine because it gives us an inside glimpse into our local businesses and we get to know our neighbors better. Congratulations Lauren & Boerne Business Monthly for a job well done!” – Kathy Rudkin, owner of Rudkin Productions “Congrats on BBM’s 15th year. It’s the one magazine with great stories that keeps readers updated on all things Boerne.” – Karl Eggerss, CapTrust “When I think of what is happening in Boerne, the go-to is BBM. Thanks Lauren for 15 great years and keeping us all informed.” – Mike Schultz, HC Home and Land “I love seeing each issue of Boerne Business Magazine because I see people I know and love running businesses I know and love that serve other people I know and love, in the town I love! It’s awesome! Great job Lauren. I remember your first issue I think!” – Dr. Ben Stahl, Boerne Family Medicine “What a great way to learn about all Boerne has to offer our community and the people and businesses that serve us. The profiles of the people behind these businesses is always a very personal way to immediately get to know them.” – Judy Filingeri, Bluebonnet Realty “Thank you for being so good to us. We appreciate you and as a long time customer I can say, I have seen great results! Congratulations on your 15 years and many more!” – Ed Trevino, Home Sweet Home Real Estate “Congratulations on celebrating 15 years in business! We look forward to working with BBM for many years to come!” – Ariel & Holly, Haute Air Boerne



“Love BBM, makes for good reading at the Old Jail Museum, plenty of time behind bars to catch up on Boerne Happenings!!! Thanks Lauren for all your generous coverage of community events, businesses, people and organizations.” – Warden Paul Barwick "I LOVE being a part of BBM! I have been with BBM since they started. Happy 15th!" – Dr. Leigh Ann Greenberg, Annie’s Apothecary “Congrats on your 15th year!! Sending good wishes for many years to come!” – Jim and Renee Campbell, Texas Hill Country Realty “Boerne Business Monthly makes our community stronger with each issue. Thank you for helping us all grow our businesses and for keeping us up to date with all that makes Boerne great. Happy 15th Anniversary!“ – Ariel Brooks-Stevens, HC Home and Land “Congratulations on your 15th year! I love how BBM always focuses on bringing our community closer together!” – Lori Gross, Rudkin Productions “Lauren…congratulations on 15 years of BBM! There’s always such great stuff. Thank you for keeping me in the loop!” – Beca Short, Jefferson Bank Mortgage

“As most small business owners will tell you, more often than not your business is not what you do, but rather becomes part of who you are,” added Stumberg. “When planning this issue, my kids of course wanted to be in the picture too. After I thought about it, it really seemed only fitting to include my family in this celebration of BBM’s 15th year. My husband, Justin, is constantly being recruited by me to lend a hand with the magazine in one way or another and Dylan and Dutch don’t know life without BBM. We constantly have boxes of magazines in our car, they help me distribute the issues each month, come with me to photo shoots and on more than one occasion have been the ‘stand in kid’ for magazine photos. It’s safe to say that this business is definitely a family affair.” Ultimately, the success of Boerne Business Monthly lies in the support from both our advertisers and our readers. “I want to thank both groups. There would be no BBM without our advertisers, several of which have been with us since day one. We have a great group of advertisers that I feel confident to recommend their products and services. And what about our readers? The readers give life to each publication. They pick it up, interact with it, circulate each issue, act upon what they read and tell their friends. Those are all things that are invaluable in the success of a publication,” said Stumberg. “Boerne is a special place. It is a wonderful place to live, work and play. There is no one thing that makes our town so great, but rather the combination of our people, our history, our landscape and our small businesses. My hope is to celebrate Boerne’s unique charm in each issue – filling our pages with the culture, commerce and community that make Boerne one really cool town.” BBM LEARN MORE

Improvements that Buyers Love


Move-in ready listings are more appealing to buyers and usually bring top dollar. Here are a few of the improvements that buyers are seeking. HARDWOOD FLOORING Gone are the days of tile in the entryway and kitchen, carpet in the living room and wood flooring in the dining room. Many buyers like the look and consistency of wood flooring throughout the entire home or at least on the main level if the home is two story. There are so many pre-finished choices today - wood laminate, luxury vinyl tile or rigid core flooring. The look is much cleaner and variety can be added with beautiful rugs. STEAM OVENS More people are desiring to cook healthier meals at home and the steam oven not only saves time and effort, it preserves moisture, nutrients and flavor. Many are choosing them for their new homes. They fit in the same space as a regular oven so they are perfect for a remodel as well. BUILT-IN BOOKCASES Homeowners are returning to reading print books rather than downloading e-books. You may have noticed many of the beautiful bookcase backdrops on Zoom calls or news interviews. With the addition of closed storage, style plus storage can be readily combined. WARMER PALETTES Light beiges, creams and all shades of green are gradually replacing stark whites and cool grays for interior colors. All-white and even all black exteriors are still very popular and are even changing the look of some neighborhoods where renovation has become the norm. CHICKEN COOPS Yes - chicken coops and maybe a goat or llama! An owner gets a sense of selfreliance and sustainability when they can have chickens along with a well planted garden. Not every community allows animals so it is wise to check ordinances before adding. By the way, there can be some pretty fancy chicken coops.
