How does the Fund Work?
When you donate to the Fund, you may designate one or more not-for-profit organization(s) to receive corresponding contribution(s) from the Fund. We refer to this as passing donations “through” the Fund. You also choose whether you want to be acknowledged to the receiving organization(s). Because the Fund is a registered non-profit, all your contributions to and through the Fund are tax deductible. We will send you a letter acknowledging your gifts which you can use for tax purposes. Please note that donations are processed on a monthly basis (usually towards the end of the month). This allows the Fund to issue one check to an organization if multiple contributions are received within a given month.
How do I Participate in the Fund?
It’s easy! If you will be making your donation via ACH (direct debit from your checking or savings account, using a Credit Card, or via PayPal) use the Donate Online section below. If you will be making your donation by mailing a check, through your Donor Advised Fund (DAF), or with Stock/Securities use the Donate Offline form below. We also accept Google Pay and Apple Pay.
