Monetary Donation

The Gift of Cash

A gift of cash is the most common and convenient way to give to The District 50 Education Foundation. Gifts may be made outright or pledged over a period of up to five years. Donors may designate a gift for a specific purpose such as teacher grants, scholarships or the Benevolent Fund by enclosing a brief note when making the gift. Checks should be made payable to The District 50 Education Foundation, or a gift can be charged through MasterCard, Visa or American Express. To donate, click here.

Gifts of Appreciated Securities

A gift of appreciated securities such as stocks, mutual funds and bonds can provide attractive benefits.

An outright gift of long-term appreciated securities (securities held for more than a year) avoids capital gains taxes and, in most cases, the donor may claim a charitable income tax deduction equal to the market value of the securities. Please call our office to discuss your giving options regarding appreciated securities.

Estate Gifts

An estate gift provides significant support to The District 50 Education Foundation.

The gift can be made through a will or a trust, and both vehicles enable assets to be distributed to individuals and nonprofit organizations in the amounts or proportions indicated. Some of the benefits to an estate gift include: • The opportunity to make a major gift while preserving assets during life • Reduction in federal estate taxes • The opportunity to designate the gift to a specific program or project at the District 50 Education Foundation. All assets, including cash, securities, real estate and tangible personal property, may be transferred to the foundation through a donor’s estate.

Matching Gifts

Some donors may be able to maximize their giving by taking advantage of an employer’s corporate matching gift program.

Many corporations have matching gift programs, which allow employees to direct corporate gift money to The District 50 Education Foundation.

Donors should contact their employer’s human resources or benefits office to learn if there is a matching gift program. Donors may also qualify under the matching gift program of a company from which they retired, at which their spouse works, or where they serve as a member of the board.
