Ways of Giving
We depend on our monthly givers! For us it is a vote of confidence in the organization and a way for individuals and families who may not be able to donate a lump sum but can stretch their giving out over the year. It is a true vote of confidence in the services we provide to our community.
DONOR ADVISED FUNDS
Donor Advised Funds, or DAFs, provide year-to-year flexibility in allocating gifts while also taking advantage of the tax benefits of making a gift to a charitable organization. Please indicate the fund, designation, and size of your gift so we can register it accordingly. Be advised that certain donor benefits are not allowable under IRS guidelines. Contact our development office for more details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
IRA CHARITABLE ROLL OVERS
As many of the baby boomer generation are aging into their 70s, they are taking advantage of this opportunity. The IRA charitable rollover allows individuals over the age of 70 ½ to donate up to $100,000 to VCA directing from their IRA without being taxed on that distribution. We encourage you to talk to your financial advisor for more details.
PLANNED GIFTS PRESERVE THE ARTS FOR GENERATIONS TO COME
Make a gift that will ensure the arts are alive for many generations to come, increasing your support and impact for the future of VCA. We would love to talk to you and about your estate plans and discuss ways in which you can leave a legacy and ease your tax burden at the same time!
EMPLOYER GIVING THAT MATCHES YOUR SUPPORT
Many organizations will match their employee giving, some even tripling it! Over 1,000 companies across the United States match their employee’s charitable gifts or gifts of volunteer time to non-profit organizations like VCA. We encourage you to ask your employer if they have a gift matching program that will allow the impact of your support to grow even more!
