WORKPLACE GIVING CAMPAIGNS
Does your company participate in a workplace giving program such as Community Shares of Colorado or Mile High United Way? The Gathering Place is a member of Community Shares of Colorado and, through this partnership, we are able to accept payroll deduction donations from hundreds of local employers. These incremental gifts add up to a monumental difference over the course of a year.
The Gathering Place Campaign ID numbers are:
* Community Shares of Colorado & Partnership for Colorado: #5026
* Rocky Mountain Combined Federal Campaign (CFC): #41763
* Colorado Combined Campaign (CCC): #5050
* Mile High United Way: Ask your campaign coordinator for an agency write-in form
Another great way to supplement your giving through your workplace is to take advantage of matching gift programs. Simply filling out a form can mean doubling or even tripling your impact! Check with your HR office today to learn more.
STOCK, REAL ESTATE, OR OTHER ASSETS
Making a gift of stock, real estate, or other assets that have appreciated in value and that you have owned for more than a year can result in significant tax savings for you. For more information on how to make a special gift to The Gathering Place, contact BJ Iacino at 303-996-9027 or via email.
Planned gifts are an excellent way to make a lasting impact on a nonprofit organization. The right planned giving option can also allow you to reduce your estate and income taxes and maximize the financial and tax benefits of your gift. There are numerous ways you can make a planned gift: in your will, from your IRA account, by establishing an endowment, or by leveraging a gift through life insurance. Your gift may be unrestricted or designated and you may make your gift in your own name, or you may memorialize a loved one with your contribution. For more information about planned giving, please ask your estate planner or attorney to contact BJ Iacino at 303-996-9027 or via email.
