Matching Gifts - Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations - sometimes matching 100% or more of your contribution!  If your employer offers a matching gift program, remember to follow your organization's matching gift process.

Planned Giving- Planned giving involves integrating a donor's charitable gifts into his or her overall financial tax and estate planning objectives so as to maximize benefits to both the donor and ESEP. For some that includes naming Easter Seals Eastern Pennsylvania in your will.

Gifts of Stock - If you have owned a stock for more than 12 months and it has appreciated in value during that time, you would incur a capital gains tax by selling it. However, if you give that stock to Easter Seals Eastern PA as a gift, you may be able to avoid the capital gains and can also claim an income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the gift up to an amount equal to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income. Any unused deduction may be carried forward for up to five years.

The quality of the Easter Seals experience is top notch because of the fabulous doctors, therapists, specialists and counselors, just to name a few, who dedicate their talents to providing compassionate care to children and their families. Easter Seals is proud to offer exceptional programs and services to over 3,000 local children with special needs and their families.

But the reality is we cannot do this alone. We rely on the generous support of individuals, corporations and foundations to bridge the gap between other funding sources and the actual cost to provide help, hope and answers to families.
