Planned Gifts

  • Explore our planned giving program for gifts such as bequests, charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, and retirement plans.

Matching Gifts 

  • Did you know your gift may be eligible for matching dollars if a corporation or foundation with a matching gifts program employs you or a family member? Often, retirees and directors qualify for this benefit as well. This is a fantastic way to double or even triple your donation!

Stock Gifts

  • A gift of long-term appreciated stock (more than one year) allows you to avoid capital gains tax. When itemizing your deductions, you can deduct the fair market value of the stock. If you choose this option, please complete and submit our stock gift form and contact us at (202) 334-2431 so that we can accurately credit your contribution.
