Ways to Give
Gifts of Cash
Outright tax-deductible gifts can be made all at once by cash, check or through a pledge to be fulfilled over a period of time. They may also be made online with the following credit cards: Visa, MasterCard or Discover.
Pledges to the Westminster Fund are asked to be made by December 31 and completed before the fiscal year end of May 31. Capital and endowment gifts are generally a larger dollar amount than a Westminster Fund gift.
A gift of appreciated securities entitles you to an income tax charitable deduction for the fair market value of the securities. Such transfers often allow contributors to realize a significant tax advantage.
Corporate matching gift programs help employees maximize their philanthropic contributions. Such gifts are a great opportunity to double or sometimes triple the amount of your contribution to Westminster. Consult your employer’s human resources department for your matching gift form.
With a planned gift, Westminster receives the asset at some future time, often after you have received their lifetime income. There are a variety of planned giving opportunities that fit particular circumstances, including gifts of real estate or tangible property, bequests, gifts of life insurance, etc.
