This allows donors to change their premium dollars into charitable contributions by assigning policy benefits to the Foundation. Premiums may be tax-deductible, and the policy benefits may be exempt from estate taxes.
Check with your employer to see if your corporation participates in a matching gift program.. Under this program your contribution is matched by your employer and the size of your original gift is doubled and sometimes tripled. Your company will provide you with a "matching gift" form to mail in with your donation. Check with the appropriate person in your business for more information.
