isn't a handout.
It's a hand up.
There are so many ways you can make an impact!
Donating cryptocurrency directly to a 501(c)3 nonprofit is more tax efficient and can save you money.
The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes, which means it is typically the most tax- efficient way to support your favorite cause.
When donating crypto, you receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the crypto, and you avoid the capital gains tax you would have incurred if you had sold the crypto and then made a donation. That means you’re able to donate more, as well as deduct more on your tax return. The difference could be up to 30%.
A Donor Advised Fund is like a charitable savings account, giving you the flexibility to control how much and how often money is granted to VOAWW.
We offer two ways to facilitate grant making. DAF Direct enables you to issue grants to Volunteers of America Western Washington directly from your DAF.
If your DAF’s sponsoring organization does not participate in DAF Direct, please have them direct your gift to:
Volunteers of America Western Washington
P.O. Box 839
Everett WA 98206-0839
We would very much like to acknowledge your generous gift so please provide your name and/or fund name and address.
Make a bigger impact by donating stocks, bonds, and mutual funds directly to VOAWW. Donating appreciated securities is easy and convenient, and you may enjoy numerous tax benefits*, including:
Claiming the market value of the securities as a tax-deductible contribution (as opposed to the cost basis).
Avoiding capital gains tax, local and state taxes on the profit from the sale of securities.
Lowering the cost basis of the gift. Compared with donating cash or selling your appreciated securities and contributing the after-tax proceeds, you may be able to automatically increase your gift and your tax deduction.
* VOAWW does not offer tax advice. Please consult a financial advisor or tax professional for more information.
Create a charitable plan that will benefit your family and support Volunteers of America Western Washington after your lifetime. A beneficiary designation gift is a simple and affordable way to make a gift. You can designate VOAWW as a beneficiary of a retirement, investment, or bank account or your life insurance policy.
A bequest is one of the easiest gifts to make. With the help of an advisor, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift be made to VOAWW as part of your estate plan. You can leave a lasting legacy to be remembered and honored, plus you may receive estate tax savings and lessen the tax burden on your family.
We invite you to join the Volunteers of America Western Washington Legacy Society, a group of very special individuals and families who have remembered VOAWW in their estate plan through a documented planned gift.
