Ways To Donate to ABCD
No one should experience breast cancer alone. We know.
A Variety of Ways to Donate to ABCD
Gifts by check or credit card are always welcome and the quickest way to support ABCD’s breast cancer support services. But there are many ways to be part of “being there” for people affected by breast cancer. All are greatly appreciated.
Tribute Gifts: In Honor or Memory of Someone You Love
If you would like to make a tribute gift in honor or in memory of a loved one, ABCD will be pleased to both thank you for your generosity and forward a tasteful note card to those you indicate.
Gifts of Stock
Appreciated stock in publicly traded companies can be the source of a generous donation and a wise tax planning step. If you would like to make a gift of such stock to ABCD before doing so, consult your tax advisor to confirm that you are eligible for the anticipated tax benefits and Contact ABCD so we can assure clear communications with your broker.
ABCD is a proud member of Community Health Charities Wisconsin. Please consider designating us for support in your workplace giving campaign.
In Kind Gifts
Gifts of goods or services that ABCD would otherwise have to pay for are as good as gold. Whether you have office supplies or professional services to share – your in kind gift is essential to assuring ABCD focuses its resources on its mission. Past in kind donations have included photography and graphic design services, as well as filing cabinets and special event auction items. To determine if your in kind donation can be helpful, Contact Us.
Planned Gifts & Direct Gifts from IRAs
Planned Gifts. ABCD is grateful that its work has remembered by donors in their financial and estate plans. Such planned gifts allow ABCD to weather economic downturns and to plan for the future. Bequests and beneficiary designations on life insurance or retirement plans are easy, revocable planned gifts. Trusts or gifts of tangible property require more planning. Whether you are exploring the idea of planned giving or simply need to work out the details, we are pleased to speak with you, or your advisor (especially if you wish to remain unknown to us).
Direct Gifts from IRAs. Until December 31, 2009 (later if the law is extended), gifts from IRAs directly to eligible charitable organizations may be made without incurring any tax liability. Very specific requirements apply and charitable distributions from IRAs should be coordinated between donor, IRA custodian and the recipient charity. But once you confirm your eligibility with your advisor, you may find that your IRA can become a powerful charitable giving tool.
Special Events (Date with a Plate)
Each year, the Friday night before Mother’s Day, ABCD celebrates its annual impact and raises funds for another year of service at Greater Milwaukee’s premiere small plates tasting event – Date with a Plate. To learn more about DWP and other ABCD events, click here.
Third Party Events
ABCD is grateful to community groups, local retailers and civic organizations that choose to support ABCD by sharing proceeds from their own events and promotions from golf outings to t-shirt sales, etc. – at no cost to ABCD. This keeps us mission-focused and helps spread the word of the power of One-to-One.
