Monthly recurring gifts are the best way to support Belong! These gifts are easy for you and provide a stable source of income that we can count on to fulfill our mission. 

Bank Withdrawal  **NEW!!!**

This is our preferred method - lower fees and more money going to Belong! programs. 

Credit Card

You can manage your recurring bank withdrawal or credit card donations. After you donate, you will receive an email receipt. Click on "Donorbox" in the lower right corner of your receipt to create an account and login to make changes.

Employer Matching Gifts

Many companies provide a matching gift program for their employees that increases the value of a gift, often doubling or even tripling your donation! Contact your employer to find out if your company offers a matching gifts program. You can also search yourself to find out if your employer offers a matching gift program by clicking here.

 

Other Types of Gifts

Everyone's financial and tax situation is different. We encourage you to check with your financial advisor about tax deductibility for the following types of donations. 

Stock Gifts

Belong is happy to accept gifts of stock. Gifting stocks that have increased in value since when you bought it, you can avoid capital gains tax. Belong! sells the stock upon receipt and gets the higher value of the stock with no tax. For financial details on stock transfers, please click here for brokerage information. Please email lynn@belongvienna.org to notify us when a stock transfer has been made. 

Qualified Charitable Distributions

After age 70.5, you can make Qualified Charitable Distributions from your IRA, up to $100,000 each year, directly to Belong!. This strategy avoids taxes you would normally pay on IRA withdrawals. Please provide our EIN 35-2637456 when making a Qualified Charitable Distribution to Belong!.

Donor Advised Fund 

A Donor Advised Fund ("DAF") is an account held by a financial institution; you make tax deductible donations to the DAF in the form of cash or other securities. The funds grow tax free, and you direct the use of the money for charitable donations, including to Belong!. Please provide our EIN 35-2637456 when contributing to Belong! via your DAF.

Legacy Giving

You can designate Belong! as a beneficiary in your life insurance policy, retirement plan, or will. If you have already included Belong! in your will, please let us know by emailing lynn@belongvienna.org. We will recognize you as a member of Belong!'s Legacy Society. 

If you have any questions about donating to Belong, please email us at lynn@belongvienna.org.
