Other Ways to Support FAIR
In addition to membership and general donations, there are other opportunities for making financial contributions to FAIR including:
Matching gift programs are a good way to maximize the impact of your gift. Many companies offer matching gift programs to their employees. This is a great way to support FAIR because it can double and sometiems triple your contribution. Check with your employer to determine your company's matching gift policies and procedures or visit the online directory to find out if your company will match your contribution to FAIR.
If your employer will match your gift to FAIR, please complete the appropriate form and mail it with a copy of your gift receipt. We will take it from there.
Gifts of Stock
Advantages of Gifts of Securities:
If you itemize deductions on your federal income tax return, you may be able to deduct your contribution from your adjusted gross income AND avoid capital gains tax on the appreciated value of the securities. If the stock has depreciated, it's best to sell it, deduct the investment loss, and give the proceeds to FAIR. This way you get a deduction for both the investment loss and the charitable gift. (Talk to your tax advisor for deduction, tax requirements, and limitations).
How to give:
