Other Ways to Donate
Matching Gift Programs
Many employers have matching gift programs. This means that you can generally double any gift you make by participating. Contact your Human Resources Department and ask -- matching gifts multiply your generosity.
Ask United Way to Support Beyond OCD
If you donate to United Way, including workplace donations, you can direct United Way to contribute a portion of your donation to Beyond OCD . Contact your United Way chairperson at work, or the United Way of Chicago at 312-906-2350 to learn how to do this.
Gifts of Securities
Gifts of highly appreciated stocks can give donors a great result. If the stocks are owned for more than one year, the donor can deduct the entire fair market value of the gifted shares and pay no capital gains tax on the appreciation. Contact Ellen Sawyer, our Executive Director, at 773-661-9530 or firstname.lastname@example.org before you sell any profitable stocks or other securities.
Create a Legacy of Giving to Help Those Who Suffer with OCD
You do not need to be wealthy to create a legacy to benefit those tortured by a life with OCD. A future gift is easy to create, can be changed throughout your lifetime and may someday help thousands of OCD sufferers. There are two easy ways to make a legacy gift:
- The simplest way is to provide a fixed amount or percentage gift in your will or living trust. Your attorney can draft a simple one page codicil to your will or amendment to your trust when you create or revise your estate plan. Click here for sample language.
- You can also name Beyond OCD as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy.
For more information on making a gift to Beyond OCD as part of your estate plan, contact Ellen Sawyer at 773-661-9530 or email@example.com .
