Donate Options

4 Ways to Give

CASH

Making an outright gift allows your investment to be put directly to use. Your tax-deductible donation can be directed to the General Fund, the General Endowment Fund, the Clarece Walker Endowment Fund, or you may choose to designate your gift to any of our community priorities including Education, Basic Needs, Income/Family Stability or Health.

MAJOR GIFTS

By giving a gift of $10,000 or more, you become a member of the elite Alexis de Tocqueville Society.

PLANNED & STRATEGIC GIVING

Estate gifts provide an excellent opportunity for people to give. Donors can take advantage of various estate-planning opportunities ranging from bequests to life-income gifts.

STOCK GIFTS OR OTHER APPRECIATED SECURITIES

A gift of stock, bonds or mutual shares that has increased in value, usually has a greater tax bene t than giving cash. Because of that, appreciated securities are often an advantageous way to make a gift to the United Way of the Lowcountry.

MATCHING GIFTS

If your employer matches charitable gifts to non-pro t organizations, you can double or even triple your charitable gift to the United Way of the Lowcountry.

RECURRING GIFTS

A recurring gift is a monthly, ongoing, specific gift amount determined by a donor that is charged to a donor’s credit card if you choose not to be invoiced monthly. Your recurring gifts will be a dependable source of support for the United Way of the Lowcountry.

SPONSORING AN EVENT

There are numerous opportunities for your company or organization to become involved with events that bene t the United Way of the Lowcountry. From golf tournaments to the Power of the Purse, we have sponsorship packages designed to meet your budget and marketing needs. We work closely with businesses to build customized programs to meet everyone’s goals.

VOLUNTEERING – GIFTS OF TIME

By volunteering at fundraising events as well as with various committees and programs such as Read Indeed, you are providing a valuable resource for the United Way of the Lowcountry.
