EMPLOYER MATCHING GIFTS

If you’re an employee – Ask at work whether your company has a matching gifts program. Your donation can go twice as far if you send it with your employer’s matching gift form. Contact us if you have questions regarding the process.

If you’re an employer – Matching your employees’ gifts to Family Focus makes you a strong partner in supporting your community. Your support enables us to empower future generations and build a stronger society.

ESTATE GIFTS

There are many ways to include a charitable gift in your will, trust, or estate plan. Planned gifts such as annuities and trusts may provide you with funds during your lifetime, while also supporting Family Focus. Such a gift can be structured in a way that does not jeopardize your current financial needs or those of your loved ones. We encourage you to contact your professional advisor to plan a gift that meets your philanthropic goals and expresses your generosity and caring.

GIFTS IN HONOR OR IN MEMORY

Is there a person in your life who has served as an inspiration? A gift to Family Focus in Honor or in Memory recognizes that person by helping Chicago area children and families. Tributes can serve as memorials, or mark events and milestones. A gift In Honor or in Memory includes an acknowledgement card sent to your designated recipient and recognition in our annual report. You can make a gift in Honor or in Memory online. Donate Now

GIFTS OF STOCKS

A gift of stock (or other appreciated property) entitles you to a tax deduction for the market value of the donated stock (not just the cost basis). If the stock you wish to donate has been held for more than one year, you can avoid capital gains tax on any appreciation of the stock by donating the stock prior to sale. Family Focus benefits by selling the stock without paying taxes on the gain, and you benefit from making a contribution that would be larger than what you might have been able to otherwise donate.

To ensure that you receive appropriate credit for your stock gift, please contact Stephen Majsak with your information (including name, stock and number of shares).

DEFERRED GIFT OPTIONS

  • Bequests – Because they do not incur inheritance taxes, bequests can be the best way to make a planned gift. Click here for more information on how to leave a bequest to Family Focus.
  • Insurance policies – When you assign an insurance policy to the Weissbourd Sustaining Fund, there is an immediate tax deduction for premiums, with proceeds deleted from your estate.
  • IRA – Donating some or all of a 401(k) IRA or other qualified retirement plan removes the income tax liability.
  • Charity Remainder Trust or Charitable Gift Annuity.

Our development office can provide you, your attorney, or your financial planner with language for your will and/or other estate planning documents. For assistance with deferred giving, please contact:
