Ask Your Employer About Matching Gifts
Many companies match contributions that their employees make 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 and your workplace giving program.
Give Through Your Donor-Advised Funds
Donor-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.
Make a gift of stock
If you own stock, you can give it to ELPC. You avoid capital gains tax and get income tax deduction equal to the current value of the stock. And, ELPC is able to put the full value of the stock to work without paying capital gains tax. To arrange a stock transfer to ELPC, call ELPC Chief Development Officer Mary Frances O’Connor at (312) 795-3723 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
