Ways to Give

Thank you for your interest in supporting the work of the Foundation for Self Leadership. In addition to easy online payment options, you can commemorate someone special through your gift, multiply the value of your donation, and manage tax liability.

ONLINE

Use our donation page to make a secure credit card gift. You can make a one-time gift or set up a recurring payment on your credit card or ACH payments directly from a bank account.

If you prefer, you can use your PayPal account to make a one-time or recurring gift.

MAIL

Use the payment form to make a gift by check or credit card.

TRIBUTES

Any gift to the Foundation for Self Leadership can be made in honor or memory of a special person. The person being honored or the next-of-kin will receive notice that such a gift was made by you without reference to the gift amount.

CORPORATE MATCHING GIFT

Many companies offer a matching gift program that can multiply the amount of the gift at no cost to you. Check with your company’s human resources department to determine eligibility and obtain a matching gift application. Retirees, board members and spouses of employees may also be eligible.

GIFTS OF STOCK

There are several financial benefits to transferring appreciated securities: you receive the full current market value of the stock on the date of transfer; that amount is deductible on federal income tax returns; and you avoid capital gains.

QUALIFIED CHARITABLE DISTRIBUTION

If you have a traditional Individual Retirement Account, you must begin taking minimum required distributions once you reach the age of 70½ and these distributions are taxable at ordinary income rates.

If you don't want or need the money, you can distribute the minimum required amount as a charitable gift, in which case you avoid paying income tax on the distributions.

AMAZON SMILE

Go to Smile.Amazon.com and register the Foundation as the beneficiary of your Amazon purchases. Then make your Amazon purchases from the AmazonSmile platform. For every eligible dollar you spend on Amazon, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.50% to the Foundation for Self Leadership and no cost to you.
