Most of the donations LBDA receives are made by check, but did you know there are other ways you can make a charitable contribution? Here are alternative ways to give that may be just right for you.
Matching gifts: You can double, or even triple, the impact of your charitable contribution if your employer offers a matching gift program. Check with your human resources manager to see if your company participates. They will provide you with a special matching gift form for you to complete and send to LBDA along with your gift. It’s that simple!
Recurring gifts: It’s easy and convenient when you support LBDA with your automatic monthly donation on your credit or debit card. To set up your recurring gift securely online, click here and select the recurring donation option.
Gifts of stock: A gift of appreciated stock can help LBDA while also providing you with a tax benefit. To make a gift of stock, please contact Mark Wall, Director of Development, firstname.lastname@example.org, 404-549-4247 and she can provide you with electronic transfer instructions.
Wills and bequests: Also called a charitable bequest, your Will allows for a simple and flexible way to remember LBDA in your planning by contributing a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or specific assets. Your financial advisor or estate planning attorney can provide information on how to include LBDA in your Will, or you can contact Mark Wall, Director of Development, email@example.com, 404-549-4247 for more information. If you do decide to include LBDA in your Will, we would greatly appreciate knowing about your intentions.
