Every contribution counts!

Payments can be made over 4 years and can start next year.

Why pledge before 12/31

  • For every $1 you pledge in December, a donor will match another $1 (up to $500,000)
  • Get your tax deduction for 2019 charitable donations. Contributions may be deducted up to 50% of adjusted gross income.
  • If you own stock, take advantage of the gains in the stock market. Transfer your stock so you don't pay tax on the capital gain.
  • If your employer matches your charitable donations, make sure to request the match for 2019.
  • If you are 70 1/2 or older (seventy and half), you can donate up to $100,000 directly from your IRA
    without it being considered a taxable distribution.
