WAYS TO GIVE

Gifts of Cash

Outright tax-deductible gifts can be made in a single installment by cash or check or through a pledge to be fulfilled over a period of time.

Bank Draft

You can set up a bank draft donation that occurs one-time or on an installment schedule.  You can go to www.fwc.org/makeagift to set this up on our secure online platform. Pledges can be made to the Annual Giving Campaign and our goal is to have those completed by July 31 prior to the start of the next school year.  Capital gifts and endowment gifts are generally a larger dollar amount than an Annual Giving Campaign gift and typically pledged over three to five years depending on the cash flow needed for the area being funded.

Give or Pledge Online

Pledges and secure credit card donations can be made online at www.fwc.org/makeagift.  Online donations can be made using Visa, MasterCard, or American Express.

Securities

Stocks and mutual funds that have increased in value and been held for more than one year are one of the most popular assets to use when making a gift to FWC. Making a gift of securities or mutual funds offers you the chance to support our work while realizing important benefits for yourself.  When you donate appreciated securities or mutual funds you have held more than one year, you can reduce or even eliminate federal capital gains taxes on the transfer. You may also be entitled to a federal income tax charitable deduction based on the fair market value of the securities at the time of the transfer. Please call Kinch Cato at 817-520-6534 for wiring instructions.

Matching Gifts

Corporate matching gift programs help employees maximize their philanthropic contributions. Such gifts are a great opportunity to double or even triple the amount of your contribution to Dunham. Consult your company's Human Resources department for your matching gift form. Please call Kinch Cato at 817-520-6534 to find out more information.

Planned Gifts

With a planned gift, FWC receives the asset at some future time, often after donors have received the lifetime income.  There are a variety of planned giving opportunities that fit particular, personal circumstances including: Trust Remainder Gifts, Trust-Income Interest Gifts, Gifts of Real Estate or Tangible Property, Bequests, Gifts of Life Insurance or Donation of Retirement Plans.

In-Kind Donations

In-kind donations of equipment, materials, and supplies may be accepted only if they provide relief to the operating budget or align with our current priorities. Please call Kinch Cato at 817-520-6534 to find out more information.

Real Estate Donations

Under certain circumstances, gifts of real estate may be accepted. Please call Kinch Cato at 817-520-6534 to find out more information.
