OTHER WAYS TO GIVE
IRA Charitable Rollover Gift
Match Your Donation
Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Ask your company if they have such a program. Many of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar.
If you are older than 70½, check with your tax adviser about the tax advantages of making a donation directly from an IRA account. This distribution counts toward satisfying your required minimum distribution, but can be made even if you've already taken your minimum distribution.
You can also donate stock. For details, please send an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name and contact number. Our treasurer will contact you to provide instructions for the stock transfer.
Gift to Honor, Remember and Celebrate
A donation to Amherst Neighbors is a thoughtful way to honor or remember someone who has made an impact on your life or to celebrate a special event such as a birthday or anniversary. Once your gift is received, we will promptly acknowledge it by sending a card to the honoree or family you designate.
With a planned gift, you can combine your desire to give to charity with your overall financial, tax and estate planning goals. Your planned gift gives you a special connection with Amherst Neighbors for now and for years to come. Talk to your estate planning adviser about how to include us as a beneficiary in your will.
Always consult your own advisers before making any gift that has tax implications, particularly where state income tax laws differ from federal law as they do in Massachusetts.
