Transparency

Diversity

Ways to Give 

This is just a small sample of what our business offers

Workplace Giving

Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Some provide matching funds to support employee volunteer hours. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift.

Securities

Savvy donors are always looking for ways to make their charitable dollars go further and make a difference in the causes that are close to their heart. Donating stocks, bonds, or mutual fund investments that have appreciated value is one of the best ways for a donor to give more. By taking advantage of applicable incentives, this kind of giving can be one of the most tax-efficient ways to give.

Bequests

One of the most popular types of legacy gifts, bequests are gifts to BLRAF designated in your will that are simple, flexible and versatile. All you need is to add a few sentences to your will using our official legal bequest language. Because the gift is made after your death, you can change your mind at any time simply by changing your will. It’s flexible because you can specify anything from money to a prized possession to a percentage of your estate. Bequests are also entitled to an estate tax charitable deduction for their full value.

Endowed Gifts

Endowments are gifts that are a permanent pool of support for BLRAF programs, because the funds are invested by professionals on behalf of BLRAF to support our programs for many lifetimes to come. Cash, securities or other assets can be used to create your endowment, or you can join one we’ve already created.

Volunteer 

Volunteers are the most important resource community organizations have. The ability of people to work willingly together for the betterment of their community and themselves is a valuable resource. The image of the volunteer has changed over time.​
