Double or Triple Your Contribution – Employer Matching Gifts
Many companies match charitable contributions made by their employees. Ask your employer if they offer a matching gifts program (most do!) then simply obtain the form, fill out the information and send it in with your donation — we do the rest! Often times retired employees or spouses can take advantage of this method of giving a donation. A matched gift is the easiest way to increase the impact of your gift.
Fundraising events offer a way everyone can get involved to support The Arc of the South Shore. Whether you are looking for a great team building exercise or an opportunity to spend time with the family, our signature events do just that. Come out and experience one of our signature events.
Planned giving options can help you maximize the personal benefits of your charitable giving, such as providing for your family, friends and yourself while allowing you to make charitable contributions that you might have thought to be impossible.
With careful planning, it is possible to reduce or eliminate income taxes, including capital gains tax, and transfer taxes, gift, estate, inheritance and generation skipping taxes. You can enjoy these tax savings while turning appreciated assets into income for yourself and others. Planned giving is a tool that helps you achieve your goals for The Arc of the South Shore and enhance your financial plans and security.
