Annual Giving

Annual support helps Melmark maintain a national reputation as a premier human services provider offering expert, evidence-based programs and services to children and adults with special needs. Charitable gifts enable us to attract and retain a team of highly-skilled and compassionate staff, to provide innovative educational and clinical programs, to invest in technology, and to sustain our facilities.

 

Gifts of Stock

Making a gift of stock or securities is simple and offers a number of valuable financial benefits:

  • You can donate appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual funds.
  • The current value of the stock on the date of transfer is tax-deductible.
  • There is no obligation to pay capital gains tax on the appreciation.

 

Donor Advised Funds

Give through your donor-advised fund to maximize the impact of your gift. Your fund sponsor handles all record-keeping, disbursements, and tax receipts.

 

Matching Gifts

Many companies offer matching gift programs to their employees which can double, or even triple, the impact of your donation. To see if your company participates in matching employee charitable giving, contact your Human Resources department. If your company participates, your HR team should be able to provide you with a Matching Gift Form, which you will need to fill out and send to Melmark’s Office of Advancement.
