Did you know, there are more ways to support Outreach for Hope than with a cash donation? We invite you to consider any of the following options below as the Christmas and the end of year approaches.
Also, our Executive Director, Pastor Chris Manke, would be happy to discuss any of these options with you and answer any questions you may have about Outreach for Hope or ways you could support our life giving ministry partners.
Thank you for your consideration!
- Pledged Gifts: Because the needs of Outreach for Hope congregations and ministries are on-going, we are grateful for those who make a commitment of support beyond a one-time gift. This gives Outreach for Hope a clearer picture of its expected donations, and allows you to give in whatever rhythm works for you: annually, semi-annually, quarterly or monthly. You can arrange for automatic donations through your bank account or credit card. Outreach for Hope encourages donors to consider a three-year pledge. Please note your pledge on the Donation Form linked here.
- Gifts Matched by Companies: You may wish to check if your employer has a matching donation program by which the company matches the gift of their employees with a corporate gift. Often the company provides a form to give to the charity at the time of your donation. Please indicate your company’s involvement as you fill out the Donation Form linked here. For recognition purposes, we credit matching gifts to the employee unless otherwise informed.
- Gifts of Stocks and Bonds: Stocks, bonds, and similar assets make excellent gifts to Outreach for Hope and are gladly received. Such donations enable the donor to claim the current market value of the assets as a tax deduction, while taxes on capital gains and transfer fees are avoided. Outreach for Hope will liquidate these assets at the time they are received. Please fill out the Stock Donation Form linked here and submit it to inform us of the intended transfer. Once the transfer is complete, you will receive a letter outlining the details of your donation. The EIN # for Outreach for Hope is 20-5218843.
- Gifts of Property: Both commercial and residential real estate can be donated to Outreach for Hope. In some instances, gifts of residential real estate may be designed to allow you and your spouse to occupy the property during your lifetime(s), while reaping immediate and substantial tax benefits. Real estate gifts are subject to acceptance approval by the Outreach for Hope Board of Directors and the Greater Milwaukee Synod Council. Contact Phil Smith at 414.671.1212 for more information.
