Corporate matching gifts are a type of charitable contribution in which companies financially match donations that their employees make to nonprofit organizations.

If your employer provides a matching gift, your contribution to RestoringVision could go twice as far in helping us fulfill our mission. Many employers offer matching gift programs that double or even triple charitable contributions made by their employees. Some companies also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses of employees. Check with your company to see if they will match your donation.

For philanthropically-minded investors, publicly traded appreciated stock can be among the most tax-advantaged items to donate to charity. Contributing such assets may enable you to potentially eliminate capital gains tax liability on the sale of the assets, allowing you to enjoy a current-year tax deduction if you itemize while providing RestoringVision with the most money possible.

To make a donation of stock to RestoringVision (tax ID#45-4920275), please contact give@restoringvision.org.

A Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) is a charitable giving vehicle administered through a centralized charitable account such as Fidelity or Charles Schwab. An account is created to manage charitable donations on behalf of organizations, families, or individuals. To participate in a donor-advised fund, a donating individual or organization opens an account in the fund and deposits cash, securities, or other financial instruments. They surrender ownership of anything they put in the fund but retain advisory privileges over how their account is invested, and how it distributes money to charities.

To donate to RestoringVision utilizing this type of charitable account, please contact your DAF administrator.

There are many tax benefits to making charitable gifts from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA). If you are age 70½ and older, you may make gifts directly from an IRA to an organization you care about, like RestoringVision. These distributions will not be included in your taxable income and they count towards all or part of your annual Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). As such, directing funds from IRAs to qualified charities instead may be to your financial benefit.

To donate to RestoringVision through your IRA, please contact your financial institution or accountant.
