Many companies match charitable contributions given to nonprofit organizations by their employees, board members, employee’s spouses, and/or retirees. Your company may match half of your gift, double your gift, or in some cases triple your gift to the ILRC. Take advantage of your company’s matching gift program by completing the required matching-gift form provided by your company and send it with your gift (if making your donation by mail) or provide your employer’s name in the “Donation Options” section (if making your donation online.) Your matching gift coordinator or human resources office can direct you to the appropriate forms. If you have any questions about matching gifts, please contact Edith Hong, Director of Development, at (415) 255-9499 ext. 466.

Workplace giving campaigns offer the convenience of giving to one agency that then disperses the gifts to the organizations you designate. Options for giving include a one-time gift or a year-long pledge that is automatically deducted from your paycheck each pay period.
Planned giving refers to the donation of assets to one or more nonprofit organizations. Planned giving most often involves a professional advisor and attorney and requires a great amount of thought and planning. In deciding to make a planned gift, there are many factors to consider including your lifetime income needs, the needs of dependent family and friends, and the use of your money after your death. Carefully structured planned gifts can help to sustain the important work of the ILRC on behalf of immigrants and immigrant communities while simultaneously providing many benefits to you. The benefits of making a planned gift can include:
- Charitable tax-deductions that reduce your income tax
- Avoiding capital gains tax on appreciated securities
- A legacy in honor of your loved one or family
The ILRC provides a number of quick and easy options for making a gift online. All online contributions are secure and confidential. Simply fill in or select a donation amount below and submit!
