  • Cash – The easiest gift and you will provide an immediate impact for Pathway children. You may receive an income tax charitable deduction for up to 60% of your adjusted gross income (AGI).
  • Gifts in your will or trust (bequests) – Designate Pathway Caring for Children in your bequest to give a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate. This will not affect your cash flow during your lifetime and is easy to revoke if your situation changes.
  • Donor advised fund (DAF) – Talk to your financial advisor and designate Pathway Caring for Children as your beneficiary for all or part of your existing DAF.
  • Retirement plan – lifetime gifts – If you are 70½ or older, you can transfer up to $100,000 each year directly from your IRA to Pathway Caring for Children and not recognize it as income. It also counts toward your minimum required distribution from the IRA for the year.
  • Securities – Stocks and publicly traded securities offer numerous tax advantages and can be more beneficial than giving cash. You can: Transfer the stock to Pathway Caring for Children electronically through your broker. Or send the stock certificate and a signed stock power for each certificate to us separately through the mail.
  • Corporate matching gifts – Ask your employer if they will match your donation to Pathway Caring for Children to maximize the impact of your donation.
