Other Ways to Give
Tributes and Memorials
Leave a lasting impression by donating in honor or in memory of someone close to you. Each honoree is notified that a gift has been made in their name to help support the services that Easterseals provides. You will also be provided with a carbon copy of that communication, along with a tax acknowledgment for your contribution.
Gifts of Securities, Real and Personal Property
Federal tax laws encourage the gift of securities, real and personal property by permitting donors to make a charitable contribution deduction for gifts in support of Easterseals.
Gifts of Stock
Donors can make gifts of stock to Easterseals and receive a charitable contribution deduction for the current value of the shares versus the original purchase price.
Through Your Will
Through your will you can designate a bequest of a specific sum or percentage of your estate, or determine a piece of property for Easterseals. A residuary gift provides a way to help others once family and heirs are provided for by indicating that the remainder of your estate is left to Easterseals. Please check with your financial advisor about other gifts through wills that would be advantageous to your loved ones as well as Easterseals.
Find out if your employer has a matching gift program that could double or even triple your gift to Easterseals. This can typically be done through an internal inquiry to your Human Resources Department.
Additional Giving Opportunities
Easterseals serving Chicagoland and Greater Rockford has information on a variety of deferred gift programs including charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder annuity trusts and charitable lead trusts, as well as gifts through insurance.
