Every gift to Perkins is an investment in the future of the children we serve. Your contribution and support is important as we respond to the needs of children and families. There are many ways you can support our work. Please consider one of the following giving options:
Friends of Perkins
Your gift to the Friends of Perkins Annual Giving Program adds to our capability to provide the highest quality services and programs to our residents and students. Our fall campaign includes a copy of our most up-to-date annual report highlighting our work and your generosity.
Gifts of Securities
Perkins welcomes stock, bonds and other securities as a donation and investment in our future. In most cases you receive a federal income tax charitable gift deduction, as well as savings from the appreciation in the stock, making it the least expensive way to give.
Funding for specific capital projects is particularly important in addressing Perkins’s changing needs. Making a capital gift results in long-lasting investment in children for many years to come.
Your gift to Perkins can be even greater if your employer – or your spouse’s employer offers a matching gifts program. Please check with your employer’s human resources office to see if your donation qualifies.
Acknowledge Someone Special
Give a gift as a memorial or recognition of someone special.
For many people, an appropriate way to remember the role of Perkins is through a deferred gift. Planned gifts include bequests, life income gifts, and charitable lead trusts. Such a gift can help accomplish personal, family, and philanthropic goals. It can also help to assure Perkins’s long-term stability, while delivering substantial tax-saving benefits and life income to donors and their families.
