Corporate Matching

Many companies match their employees’ contributions to non-profit organizations. Check back here soon for an easy way to learn if your employer is part of a gift-matching program.


Planned Giving

Planned giving is sometimes referred to as gift planning or legacy giving. It is a way to support non-profits that enable you as a philanthropic donor to make larger gifts than you could make from ordinary income.

Some planned gifts provide life-long income to you. Other gift plans use estate and tax planning to provide for charity and heirs in ways that maximize the gift and/or minimize its impact on the donor’s estate.

Whether you use cash, appreciated securities/stock, real estate, partnership interests, personal property, life insurance, a retirement plan, etc., the benefits of funding a planned gift can make this type of charitable giving very attractive to everyone concerned.
