Alternative gifts include:
Matching Gifts, Stock Contributions, and Bequests
Many employers sponsor corporate matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions that their employees make. Your gift to IWF may double or possibly triple! Some companies also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
If your employer provides matching gifts, you should contact your company's human resources department to enroll. Companies have various methods by which you can submit your matching gift request -- online forms, automated phone systems or an application form that you submit to IWF. If your company uses a matching gift application form, please complete and sign the form and send it to IWF. We'll do the rest!
Gifts of Appreciated Stock
If you have owned stock for more than one year and it has appreciated in value, you may be able to use the current value of the stock as a charitable donation. A gift of stock is easily accomplished through electronic transfer. You or your broker should contact Nicole Neily, 202-431-8185 with your account information.
Remember IWF in Your Will
A simple, commonly used method to ensure IWF's legacy is naming the Independent Women's Forum as a beneficiary in your will. One may specify a certain sum of money, specific property, a fixed percentage of your estate, or all or part of the estate after bequests to other beneficiaries have been made. Alternatively, one may consider naming IWF as a beneficiary in your living trust, life insurance, or pension plan.
For any questions on these alternative giving methods, please contact IWF's Executive Director Sabrina Schaeffer, 703-225-8797 or via email.
