Other Ways To Support Us All Year Long!
Give At Work Through Your Employer's Matching Gifts Programs
Many businesses match employee contributions or sponsor or donate to organizations that are important to their employees. Some employers also participate in annual giving campaigns where you can designate your donations to CT NOFA. Check with your company's benefits administrator to see what they offer.
Give A Gift In Someone's Honor or Memory
Honor a friend or family member, or their memory, with a gift in their name. Honorary and memorial donations are lasting and meaningful alternatives to gifts or flowers. Many choose such a gift to recognize a friend or family member’s love of local and organic food, agriculture, gardening or land care.
Throwing A Party? Forego The Gifts & Request Donations!
Instead of gifts for your next birthday or anniversary, you can ask friends and family to donate to CT NOFA. That will great enhance our ability to create change.
Give The Gift of Stocks & Bonds
CT NOFA accepts gifts of appreciated stock, which are sold upon receipt to support our work and programs. To make a gift, please contact Jeff Cordulack, Executive Director, 203-613-8813 or email@example.com
Include CT NOFA In Your Estate
Planned giving is a lasting way of ensuring our organic mission endures for generations. Special gifts can be achieved through bequests or charitable trusts, and can include real estate, bonds or other tangible assets.
In addition to sustaining CT NOFA’s mission and providing a meaningful legacy, these special ways of giving offer several benefits to donors. Since the tax rules regarding this type of donation regularly change, CT NOFA strongly encourages you to consult with an attorney who specializes in estate planning and estate and gift taxes before deciding what best suits your needs.
If you wish to discuss the language of your bequest or seek additional information on planned giving opportunities, please contact Jeff Cordulack, Executive Director, 203-613-8813 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
