Methods of Contribution


EXTENDED GIVING PROGRAM
ACADEMY OF FRIENDS is pleased to offer the convenience of an extended giving plan, which enables you to divide your pledge into equal monthly installments charged to your credit card. From the time you sign up, we'll divide your pledge into equal monthly payments through Feb 15, 2012.

CORPORATE MATCHING GIFTS
Increase your support! Increase your support! Many corporations and small businesses will match donations their employees make to nonprofit organizations. Ask your employer if matching gifts are available and include your employer's matching gift form with your gift.

STOCK
If you own publicly traded stock it may be advantageous for you to make a stock contribution instead of cash contribution. A gift of appreciated stock generally provides you a two-fold tax advantage. First, you avoid paying capital gains tax on the increase in the value of the stock. Second, you receive a federal income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock at the time of the gift. Contact your accountant, attorney or tax advisor for assistance regarding stock gifts you may be considering to donate to ACADEMY OF FRIENDS.

BEQUESTS OR PLANNED GIFT
You can designate ACADEMY OF FRIENDS as a beneficiary of your estate. Bequests may include a variety of assets - cash, securities, real estate and other property. To ensure that your exact intentions are carried out, your estate planning documents should be prepared by, and with the advice of, your attorney.

DONATE YOUR VEHICLE
Academy of Friends can benefit from the sale of your car, motorcycle, boat, or RV, while you receive a tax break for your donation. We have partnered with CARS 4 CAUSES to manage this program. For more information, please call 1-800-766-CARE (2273) or click here for a Cars 4 Causes donation form.

SELL AN ITEM USING EBAY GIVING WORKS
When you sell an item on eBay you can designate all or a portion of the sale to benefit Academy of Friends using eBay's Giving Works program. Turn your eBay listings into a force for good with eBay Giving Works. With each listing you can pledge to donate from 10% to 100%* of an item's final sale price to Academy of Friends and get a pro-rated fee credit on your Insertion fee and Final Value fees when your listing sells. Visit www.ebaygivingworks.com for more information.

IN MEMORY OF/IN HONOR OF GIFTS
Give a gift to ACADEMY OF FRIENDS in honor of or in memory of a special person in your life. We'll send a gift card letting them or their family know that a contribution has been made in their name. Your gift both honors the individual and supports the important work of ACADEMY OF FRIENDS.

Call us at 415.995.9890 or email through the Contact Us form to learn more, or if you have any questions.
