Donate

All donations made go to support our mission of helping children and families.

There are so many additional ways for you to contribute:

Appreciated Stock:

We are able to accept gifts of publicly traded appreciated stock via TD Ameritrade. If you own stocks, bonds or mutual funds that have appreciated in value you have an opportunity to realize tax savings by making an outright gift of your stock to our organization. A gift of appreciated property lets you bypass capital gains tax that could be due if you sold the asset. You are also entitled to a charitable deduction based on the property’s current value. For guidance through this process, please contact us.

Matching Donations:

Many organizations match the charitable donations of their employees. Do you know if your employer does? Click here to see a list of organizations that match employee giving. If you know of an organization that should be on this list, or if you need help filing the paperwork for your match, please reach out to Bryan.

In-Kind Donations:

Do you, or your company, offer a service that our organization needs or uses? We gladly accept donations of needed services; like printing or marketing. We also routinely collect high-value items to use in our raffle. If you are interested in donating an item or a service, please contact Bryan.

Donor-Advised Fund:

A Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) is a segregated fund maintained by a qualified public charity which is created when a donor makes a gift of cash or assets. This gift allows the donor to receive an immediate income tax deduction, avoid the capital gains tax on appreciated assets, and have the ability to make grant recommendations to Fostering Change for Children at any time. To create your DAF, please visit Renaissance Charitable Foundation and speak with Susie McEuen at (866) 803-0389, ext. 5285.

Planned Giving:

For many individuals, ensuring that the important work carried out by their favorite charities continues after their lifetime is important. If you are interested in supporting Fostering Change for Children though your estate plan, there are many options available to you. Please feel welcome to reach out to Bryan for assistance or more information.

Charitable Bequests - You can make a provision in your will or trust fund for FCFC, set to your specifications.

Living Trusts - Name FCFC as the beneficiary of assets in a living will, maintaining full control of the trust and your assets.

Life Insurance - Consider using your life insurance policy to create a greater philanthropic impact at FCFC than you might have thought possible. Many have life insurance with assets totaling more than is needed for a comfortable retirement. Depending on the status of your policy, income tax or estate tax deductions apply.

If you have already named Fostering Change for Children in your estate plan, we ask that you please let us know.
