Ways to Give to NILD

There are almost as many ways to make a donation as there are needs to be met.

Gifts of Cash

Making a donation of cash is as simple as writing a check or authorizing a charge on your credit card.  The fastest, easiest way to donate is via our eStore.

Gifts of Securities

Stock that has increased in value is one of the assets most frequently used for charitable giving. Stocks must have been held for a minimum of one year.

Gifts of Retirement Plan Assets

To maximize the value of a retirement account, consider making a lifetime gift of its after-tax values to a tax-exempt deferred giving plan.

Gifts of Real Estate

Using real estate, such as your house, farm, commercial property, or undeveloped land, to fund a gift allows you to preserve your cash assets, receive significant tax and income advantages, and make a larger charitable gift than anticipated.

Gifts of Life Insurance

Naming NILD as your life insurance beneficiary can be a wonderful way to fulfill your desire of helping this important organization.

Matching Gifts

Under a corporate matching gift program, gifts made by a company’s eligible employees to non-profit organizations which meet the company’s guidelines are matched with company or corporate foundation funds.

Planned Giving

Depending on your individual circumstances, these plans can increase your income, reduce your taxes, unlock appreciated investments, relieve you of investment worries, and ultimately provide very important support.
