How to Make a Contribution
Review the options and decide which will work best for you. You may make a tax deductible gift at any time or as part of our annual drive. You may arrange for a memorial contribution or provide a gift in your will/trust.
You may pledge a gift using our online pledge form
or print and mail a gift form
with your contribution to the Foundation office. Please note: we are not set up to accept online payments at this time.
Annual Drive: If you receive a letter asking for a donation, simply return your contribution in the enclosed envelope. Any amount you send will be appreciated. If you do not receive a letter, please call the Foundation office at (989) 773-5579 or (989) 772-4900.
Memorials: A memorial contribution to the Foundation may be made in honor of a living person or in memory of a deceased loved one. A memorial to the Foundation is a fitting way to express your love by contributing to a cause that benefits so many young people in the community. It is truly a fitting and rewarding tribute to the honored person. Memorial cards are available from the area funeral directors or by contacting the Foundation office.
Gifts: Your contribution to the Foundation will be tax deductible. The tax savings was designed to assist worthwhile organizations such as this one, and hopefully you will consider the Foundation when planning for your yearly taxes. You may also wish to consider gifts of stocks, bonds, insurance and real estate. There are a number of tax advantages to each type of contribution.
Wills/Trusts: A gift may be made to the Foundation in your Will or Trust. This can be accomplished by a simple direction to give the Foundation a specified amount of money or a percent of your estate. As with lifetime giving, you may also wish to consider a gift of stocks, bonds, insurance and real estate. In any case, it is very important that you consult an attorney.
Your thoughtful Will or Trust should recognize the Federal Estate/Gift Tax and careful planning will minimize the impact of the tax. The value of any gift to the Foundation will be deductible for Federal Estate/Gift Tax purposes as the Foundation qualifies for exemption from Federal Tax under Sections 501(c)(3).
