Why give to DVRC?
"I am not the same person I was 7 years ago, and I certainly am no victim.
I have a voice, and a community that loves and support me to use it."
- Support Group Client
Many companies sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees (or past employees), allowing your donation to help those experiencing domestic violence twice as much. On behalf of the men, women, and children that access critical services at DVRC, we thank you for your support.
Double the Impact with a Matching Gift
Donating appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds is a tax-advantaged way to help those experiencing domestic violence. By donating gifts of stock or other assets that you have held for more than one year to DVRC, you will receive the same income tax savings as a cash gift, but with the added benefit of eliminating capital gains taxes on the transfer, which can be as high as 20%. Contact your financial advisor for more information.
A Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) acts as a charitable investment account. Your DAF contributions are eligible for an immediate tax deduction, allowing you the flexibility of both investing funds for tax-free growth and recommending grants to charitable organizations you care about. If you already have a DAF, you can request a one-time or monthly gift to DVRC. Contact your DAF manager.
Donor-Advised Funds (DAF)
If you are at least 70&1/2 years of age, you can make a gift of up to $100,000 directly to DRVC through a charitable IRA rollover, without owning any income tax on the distribution. A charitable IRA rollover can be used to satisfy required minimum distributions. Please speak to your financial advisor about this option.
You can support DVRC by donating appreciated property or leaving real estate to us in your will. By giving a gift to DVRC in the form of real estate or other appreciated assets, you can avoid paying capital gains tax, while making an impact in your local community. Please reach out to your real estate lawyer for more information about this option.
Join this group of special sustaining members. A planned gift- a bequest in your will, a final contribution of appreciated stock, a beneficiary IRA, an insurance policy- is a powerful commitment to securing a future free from violence for our community that will live long after you are gone, extending the strength of your support for years to come.
