Double The Impact with a Matching Gift

Many companies sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees (or past employees), allowing your donation to help those experiencing domestic violence twice as much. On behalf of the men, women, and children that access critical services at DVRC, we thank you for your support.

Matching Gifts

Appreciated Securites

Donating appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds is a tax-advantaged way to help those experiencing domestic violence. By donating gifts of stock or other assets that you have held for more than one year to DVRC, you will receive the same income tax savings as a cash gift, but with the added benefit of eliminating capital gains taxes on the transfer, which can be as high as 20%. Contact your financial advisor for more information.

Donor-Advised Funds (DAF)

A Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) acts as a charitable investment account. Your DAF contributions are eligible for an immediate tax deduction, allowing you the flexibility of both investing funds for tax-free growth and recommending grants to charitable organizations you care about. If you already have a DAF, you can request a one-time or monthly gift to DVRC. Contact your DAF manager.

IRA Distribution

If you are at least 70&1/2 years of age, you can make a gift of up to $100,000 directly to DRVC through a charitable IRA rollover, without owning any income tax on the distribution. A charitable IRA rollover can be used to satisfy required minimum distributions. Please speak to your financial advisor about this option.

Donate Property

You can support DVRC by donating appreciated property or leaving real estate to us in your will. By giving a gift to DVRC in the form of real estate or other appreciated assets, you can avoid paying capital gains tax, while making an impact in your local community. Please reach out to your real estate lawyer for more information about this option.
