Ask Your Employer About Matching Gifts

DonationIcons_MatchingGiftsMany companies match donations to non-profit organizations. Check with your employer to see if you can double or even triple your gift to ELPC. You may also be able to contribute through EarthShare of Illinois or your workplace giving program.


Donor-Advised Funds

DonationIcons_DonorAdvisedFundsDonor-advised funds allow you to centralize your charitable dollars in one account. These funds typically provide the maximum tax advantages and flexibility in grant-making along with secure online access to your funds. If you have a donor-advised fund, be sure to make ELPC one of your beneficiaries.

Stock Gifts

And, ELPC is able to put the full value of the stock to work without paying capital gains tax.
