Donate your time, talent and/or treasure.
The most common type of donation to nonprofits, one-time donations, occurs when someone gives a specific monetary amount to an organization once. Even if that person gives the same amount to the same organization several times throughout the year, because there isn’t a planned recurring schedule or written expectation of when and how the donation will be made, they are all considered one-time donations.
When someone decides to commit to a consistent recurring schedule of donating, this is considered a recurring gift. One benefit of recurring gifts is that they help give Neighborhood an expectation of consistent, predictable cash flow which enables us to make forecasts into funding and scheduled payments throughout the year. Additionally, it might help the person donating by spreading their contribution out over time rather than in one lump sum. For example, you might not be able to donate $300 all at once, but you may be able to budget an extra $25 a month as a recurring gift.
Another popular type of donations that nonprofits receive comes through stock. Did you know you can donate long-term appreciated securities such as stock, bonds and mutual funds? And it’s easier than it may seem. When you donate the stock itself—rather than selling or liquidating the security—not only do you remove a step in the process, but you won’t need to remove the long-term capital gains taxes paid from the overall sum. This increases your donation amount up to 37% more. To transfer stock, either you or your broker fills out the transfer authorization form, and that’s all there is to it.
It can be hard to think about what happens after we’re gone, but setting up a planned gift is a great way to ensure the charities you support are included in your arrangements. There are a number of ways you can use planned giving to build charitable giving into your life plans, even after death. Some can even help you lower your taxable income now! Consider planning ahead now and explore some of these ways for giving after life:
- A specific bequest of money or property naming Neighborhood as a beneficiary
- Residual bequest of the remainder of the estate after specific bequests
- Contingent bequest in which the gift to Neighborhood occurs if the original beneficiaries die before the donor
- Charitable Remainder Trust
- Charitable Gift Annuity
- Charitable Lead Trust
- Life Tenancy Agreement
- Neighborhood can be named as the beneficiary of a new life insurance policy, which is revocable by the donor
- Neighborhood can be named as the owner and beneficiary of a new life insurance policy, which is irrevocable
- An existing life insurance policy can be changed to include Neighborhood as a beneficiary or to transfer ownership of the policy to Neighborhood.
Qualified Retirement Plan:
- Neighborhood can be named as the beneficiary of a tax-deferred retirement plan, including IRA, 401(k), 403(b), Keogh, etc.
Donations don’t need to be monetary to make an impact. In-kind donations are a gift of goods, services, time, or expertise. When you provide an in-kind donation, you’re helping to alleviate some of the stress Neighborhood and allows us to use our financial resources in better ways. For example, when you donate your time and expertise, you’re allowing Neighborhood to put more money toward our mission instead of additional staff or contractors, help existing staff work more efficiently by taking on some of the load, and bring experience that might otherwise need to be outsourced. Gifts of goods, like laptops for homework centers or art supplies for seniors, keeps Neighborhood from spending funds on the things we need.
