WAYS TO GIVE
Your generous support is fundamental to providing recreational opportunities to children and families with all abilities and from all walks of life, and to fostering a love of sports and the positive impact it has on body, mind and spirit. We invite you to learn more about the impact your gift will make and join a growing community of like-minded people who care about the challenges that many children and families in our region face.
I would like to discuss making a gift.
MAKE AN OUTRIGHT GIFT The most immediate impact comes from outright gifts. We are happy to discuss with you how to make your gift by check, credit card, wire transfer, or PayPal.
MAKE A RECURRING GIFT A recurring gift is an easy and convenient way to ensure your continued support. You can easily make your gift in regular monthly installments charged to your credit or debit card.
MAKE A MULTI-YEAR PLEDGE By committing to a series of donations over a period of years, you can be recognized as if you had given the combined total all at once and have a much greater impact on the foundation. This formal statement of intention to the Campaign, payable over several years, allows you to give more generously than you originally may have considered.
BECOME A FOUNDERS TEAM MEMBER Founders Team members make a contribution to support the operation of the Foundation and the construction of the facility. Team Member benefits include recognition of your commitment, and inclusion in special events and activities.
DONATE APPRECIATED SECURITIES OR REAL ESTATE There may be considerable tax advantages for you if you transfer appreciated securities or real estate to Palm Beach North Athletic Foundation before being sold. For example, your gift will provide a two-fold tax benefit: Creating an income-tax deduction as well as helping avoid the capital gains taxes when the asset is sold.
MAKE A GIFT FROM YOUR IRA ACCOUNT The 2015 Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act made permanent the IRA charitable rollover. Individuals who are at least 70 ½ years old when they make a gift are eligible. Benefits include the avoidance of taxes on transfers up to $100,000 from your IRA to the foundation, the ability to satisfy your required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year, and the ability to reduce your taxable income.
MAKE A PLANNED GIFT Some gifts require special planning. These planned gifts can allow you to make a significant gift during your lifetime, generate a charitable income tax deduction, provide life-income, and reduce estate and gift taxes, while being recognized during your lifetime and sustaining your legacy forever.
BECOME A CORPORATE PARTNER Companies today understand the need to partner with nonprofits that help them maintain relevance, importance, and visibility through partnership opportunities. Eighty four percent of Americans believe that businesses have a responsibility to bring about societal change. (2016 Global Strategies Group.) We are interested in partnering with companies that have a solid brand image and reputation. Palm Beach North Athletic Foundation can provide your brand with a significant and visible platform as you help serve children and families through sponsorship of these facilities and programs.
PROVIDE AN EMPLOYER MATCHING GIFT Check with your company’s human resources office to see if they offer a matching gift. If they don’t, you may want them to start one. If your employer does offer this program, your HR department should provide you with a form. Complete it and provide it to Palm Beach North Athletic Foundation at the same time as you make your gift.
