Tips for Year-End Giving from Ed Maner, 88.3 WAFJ Major Gifts Officer
Your support of 88.3 WAFJ is greatly appreciated. As a listener-supported Christian radio ministry, we, quite literally, could not do what we do without you.
When you consider making a gift to support 88.3 WAFJ, the first thing that comes to mind is sending a check or giving online. Both are wonderful and easy ways to be a part of the work God is doing through this ministry. But they are not the only ways you can financially support 88.3 WAFJ.
Here are some additional ways that you can give:
Corporate Matching - Do you work for a company with a matching gift program? If so, you can easily double or in some cases triple your gift by simply filling in a form with your employer. Click here to see if your employer participates. You can also contact your Human Resources department to find out more or call me, and I’ll be happy to help.
Gifts of Stock - Did you know that it is convenient to give a gift of stock through your investment portfolio? Why is this important for you? The simple four-word answer is: avoid capital gains taxes. If you have owned the stock for some time, you can avoid paying the capital gains earned and are still eligible to deduct the full-market value of the asset you donate. Just a note, if you desire to deduct this on this year’s taxes, your gift will need to arrive prior to the end of the year. Feel free to call me at 941-201-1655 or click here to email me for more details.
Legacy Giving - Have you ever considered leaving an estate gift to 88.3 WAFJ that will have a long-term impact for the ministry? If so, I would love to hear from you and will gladly assist you and your family through the process. Click here to send me an email and schedule a time to talk.
As we approach the end of the year, will you consider giving a special gift to 88.3 WAFJ? Regardless of how you decide to give, we are thankful for your continued and faithful support.
