Matching Gifts

Does your company have a matching gift program? Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. If your company has a matching gift program, you could double or possibly triple your gift quickly and easily.

In-Kind Gifts

Contributions of goods or services to either GDF or LASD can provide an ideal opportunity for both the donor and the recipient.

Bequests and Other Planned Gifts

Bequests are provisions in wills to leave a gift to GDF. Charitable bequests are fully deductible from the estate and can significantly reduce estate taxes on the balance of the estate. Bequests may be specified as a gift of cash or securities, real estate or other property.  Alternatively, they may take the form of a percentage of the total estate. A donor may consider a residuary bequest, which is a gift of all or a portion of one’s estate after other conditions are met.

Gifts of Stock

A gift of appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual funds that have been held more than one year is a popular alternative to contributing cash. Through a gift of securities you may avoid the capital gains taxes on the appreciation and receive a charitable income tax deduction.
