We know that life is precious, and our mission is to impact those in need now and in the future. Donors have asked us for alternative ways to make contributions that maximize their support to families now and in the years ahead. We welcome donations of all sizes in a manner that makes the most sense for those who are in a position to give. Here are some opportunities to consider:
Making a Stock Donation
Donating long-term appreciated securities, which may include stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, is a wonderful way to maximize your tax deduction and impact more children in need. Please consult with your tax advisor for more information and to initiate this generous contribution!
For those who may be in a position to make a large-scale contribution, first and foremost, thank you. We would be glad to meet with you and your tax advisor to determine if making a considerable contribution could be allocated for multiple years of support, if the creation of an endowment is preferred, the steps involved in establishing a Donor-Advised Fund donation, or what makes the most sense for you and those involved in your giving.
Donors have asked us how to continue their legacy in the event of their passing. Their hope is to leave a legacy that continues to change the lives of children fighting cancer. Here are some planned giving opportunities to consider:
- Naming The Fighting Children's Cancer Foundation in your will. A gift through your estate will continue to help children and families for years to come.
- Donating Stocks, Retirement Funds, and Investment Accounts. If you are inclined, there is a TOD Form ("Transfer on Death Form") that can be completed to designate a portion of your stocks, mutual funds, or investment accounts. It can be a fixed amount or a percentage. Please consult your advisor for more information and to complete this form for the Fighting Children's Cancer Foundation.
Please contact Andrea Inauen, Foundation Executive Director, at 908-429-2121 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or additional considerations. On behalf of all the children and families you are helping, thank you for being part of the Fighting Children's Cancer Foundation.
