Make your gift online today.
Spread your gift out over a period of time by making your gift recurring (i.e. monthly) or by scheduling payments on your gift. When you make your gift recurring, you provide us with the credit card, debit card, or bank account number that you would like us to debit monthly or quarterly until your credit card expires or you change or cancel your gift. If you'd like to make payments on a larger gift, you may prefer to sign up for scheduled payments, which breaks your gift into smaller amounts to be charged to your account on a schedule you choose. Sign up online with your credit/debit card or complete and mail the monthly giving form for automatic transfers from your checking account. You will receive an official receipt once a year in January for gifts processed in the previous year. You remain in control—cancel or alter your gift any time by calling us at 800-232-8634, ext. 2187 or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Search to see if your employer will match your gift.
Matching gifts make your gift worth more! If you or your spouse works for a company that matches employees' charitable contributions, your gift could be doubled or even tripled. More than 16,000 companies sponsor matching gift programs for employees and their families. Many companies also match the gifts of retirees and surviving spouses. To find out if your company is a matching gift organization, please contact your benefits office or search here for more information. After obtaining the matching gift form, just include it with your gift and we'll do the rest.
While cash gifts have certain advantages, they may not always be feasible for an individual who would like to make a major gift. Moreover, gifts of other kinds of assets may generate larger tax benefits and create an opportunity to make a substantial gift that otherwise might not be possible.
Gifts of long-term, appreciated securities are the most popular type of outright property gift. The securities are often individual stocks but may include bonds or shares of mutual funds. Outright gifts of securities can be made quickly and easily enabling you to do more with your gift because of the tax benefits.
If giving appreciated securities, your benefit may be doubled. Save all capital gains taxes and you may deduct the full market value of the securities on your Federal income tax return.
