Other ways to give

What are employee matching gift programs?  Employee matching gift programs are corporate giving programs in which the company matches donations made by employees to eligible nonprofit organizations. Find out if your company matches. It’s an easy way to double your contribution.

Have you considered giving directly from your IRA? Making a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) is a great option to lower your income taxes while doing good for others. If you’re 72 years or older, QCDs count toward your IRA’s Required Minimum Distribution, often bringing about many tax benefits. Learn more about Qualified Charitable Distributions.
