Matching Gifts

Corporate matching gifts are a type of giving in which companies financially match donations that their employees make to nonprofit organizations. Companies of all sizes match donations because it’s an easy, structured way for them to support good work in their communities.

Does your company match?
Simply type the name of your company in the donation form to see if your employer will match your donation. 

When you make a donation, you can request a matching gift from your employer (if they offer this program), who then makes their own donation. Companies usually match donations at a 1:1 ratio, but some will match at a 2:1, 3:1, or even a 4:1 ratio!

In effect, your gift will go twice as far!

Gifts of Stock

Take advantage of the many tax benefits of donating stock:

— no long-term cap gain tax on your donated shares
— tax deduction for the full market value of your donated shares

To donate shares, please fill out and email the form to us to let us know to look out of for your stock donation.  Email:  donorcare@doorofhope.us

Donor Advised Fund

If you are currently using a donor-advised fund for your charitable giving, consider designating Door of Hope as a grant recipient.

A donor-advised fund is a philanthropic giving vehicle in which an individual deposits contributions without choosing a specific recipient right away. When you, the donor, decide on a recipient, you can send the money from the account to the nonprofit organization as a grant. 

IRA Qualified Distribution

If you are 70½ or older and you have a traditional IRA, you are eligible to make a tax effective donation to a charity directly from your IRA, even if you do not itemize deductions on your tax return. This donation is called a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) and it uses funds that you’re already required by law to withdraw from your IRA that otherwise would be taxed. It’s a simple but highly effective way to support Door of Hope while minimizing the tax bite associated with IRA distributions.
