HELPING US MOVE GIRLS TO THEIR RESULTS
Thank you for your generous support of Project DIVA International. Monetary gifts are the most efficient way to support our mission. Below are a number of ways to maximize your impact and financially support our
critical mission. Choose one of the academies or clubs that interest you or choose a way to donate below.
For more information on any options listed here, contact Neda Kellogg, Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 612.730.3945.
One-Time Donations: Use our online donation form to make a quick gift right now.
Automatic Monthly Giving: The help we provide is made possible, in part, by generous donors who make monthly gifts of support. This sustained giving ensures we can meet needs promptly, no matter the situation or the season. Sign-up to make a monthly gift via your credit card.
Payroll Deduction: Your employer may allow you to donate directly through payroll. Ask your human resources department for details.
Matching Funds: Many companies have a matching gift program that doubles your generosity. Some companies also match volunteer hours with a financial donation. Project DIVA International has received matching funds from major Minnesota companies like Bank of America, Centerpoint Energy, Securian Financial Foundation, Target, State Farm, Thomson Reuters and U.S. Bank Foundation. Ask your human resources department if your company has a matching program.
Donor Advised Funds (DAFs): Donor-advised funds are the fastest-growing charitable giving vehicle in the U. S. because they are tax advantageous and one of the most effective ways to donate to Project DIVA International. These funds are an excellent way to both simplify your charitable giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals. DAFs allow you to make gifts of cash, stock and other assets. You receive an immediate tax deduction when the contribution is made. However, distributions from the fund are not immediately required. Ask your financial or tax advisor for details.
Stock and Securities: Gifts of stocks, bonds, mutual funds or other appreciated assets are a strategic way to support Project DIVA International while securing tax benefits to maximize your support. By donating these assets, you can avoid capital gain taxes that would be required if you sold them. For more information or assistance with a stock gift, please contact: Neda Kellogg, email@example.com.
IRA Distributions: If you’re 72 or older, you can donate up to $100,000 per tax year directly from an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) to Project DIVA International. A qualified charitable distribution (QCD) is a distribution from an IRA directly to an eligible charity, bypassing the owner of the account so he’s not taxed on it. QCDs count toward your required minimum distribution for the year. If you’d like to make a QCD gift, your financial institution should make the check out to “Project DIVA” and identify you as the donor by name and address.
United Way Giving: You can write in Project DIVA as your charity of choice when giving through your company’s United Way campaign.
Donate In-Kind Gifts: We accept goods and services for our youth, as well as, for our event silent auctions. These items help us save money while providing you with a valuable tax deduction. Many of our youth are in need of self-care products, hygiene items and journals. Donate from our registry here,
