Ways to Give

There are a number of different ways you can lend a hand and support Family Connections to ensure that our programming continues to positively affect families and our neighborhoods.

Gifts of Stock & Appreciated Assets

Stock and securities may be transferred directly to Family Connections. Donors receive tax deductions based on the fair market value of the property at the time of the gift and avoid capital gains tax on appreciated property.

Planned Gifts

Planned and deferred gifts through wills, bequests, trusts, and insurance provide mutually beneficial giving opportunities. While a cash contribution is usually the first method of giving that comes to mind, planned giving alternatives may be more advantageous to the donor.

Amazon Smile

Family Connections is registered with AmazonSmile, an online shopping opportunity in which Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. This is a free and easy way to support Family Connections while you do your regular online shopping. To select Family Connections as your charity, go to AmazonSmile, log into your account, and search for Family Connections as your chosen charity.

Donate a Car

Family Connections accepts the donations of cars or any other type of vehicle through our partnership with CARS. All that you will need to provide is the Certificate of Title upon pickup of your donated vehicle. To donate your vehicle, go to www.cardonatingiseasy.org and complete the form.
