Employer Matching Gift

Many companies offer matching gift programs that will double, even triple a donation’s value. Check with your company to see if they will match your donation to KGF

Stocks, Securities and Mutual Funds

Giving long-term (held for more than a year) appreciated stocks to KGF creates a win-win situation for you and KGF.  This allows you to keep your taxes as low as possible while making the largest possible contribution. Besides, by donating stock instead of cash, you can:

  • Double up on tax benefits: Gain on charitable deduction, plus avoid the tax on appreciation
  • Retain cash flow: You are making meaningful contribution without compromising on your current income level

To proceed with stocks donation, please contact us via email or phone
