Contributions are unrestricted and not related to an event.  

Matching Gifts 

A matching gift is a donation made by a company on behalf of an individual, most often a current employee or retiree. The matching gift donation can be equal or exceed the amount of the donation to RAIN depending on the company's program. Matching Gift Programs are increasingly vital to RAIN. This is because of their ability to increase resources by doubling, tripling or even quadrupling the individual's contribution.

Your Will or Trust is the most important part of your total estate plan. If you do not leave a will or trust, your good intentions may leave with you. With a will or trust, you can provide for those you love, make a charitable donation, and minimize taxes and other expenses. 

One way to give is with a Bequest. Your will or trust can designate a gift to RAIN. Such a gift can take the form of cash, stocks, bonds, books, real estate, or any type of asset. You may also give a percentage of your estate. The bequest lets you pass on your gift to RAIN free of estate tax. 

Gift of Life Insurance to RAIN can be a way to make a significant donation. If you have existing policies for which you no longer need the coverage, consider assigning ownership to the Affiliate. By naming RAIN as both owner and beneficiary, you get a tax deduction and make a generous gift at a low cost. 

Another way to donate is Gifts of Real Estate. If you own property that is paid off and has appreciated in value, an outright gift may be the simplest solution. You can deduct the fair market value of your gift, avoid all capital gains taxes and remove that asset from your taxable estate. 

Living Trust is often a good supplement to a will for those who wish to avoid the time and expense of probate. There are many kinds of trusts for many different purposes, but they all have one thing in common. They are a means of assuring that your property will be handled, and ultimately passed on, in the way you wish. For more information about RAIN, please contact Joyce Brooks at 704-973-9819.
