Donor-advised fund

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support your favorite causes. If you have a donor-advised fund, DAF Direct enables you to recommend grants to this nonprofit directly from your DAF (as long as your DAF’s sponsoring organization is participating).

Stocks

Electronic delivery of stock shares is a secure and expedient delivery process available and provides efficient internal control and cost savings. You may also transfer certificates directly. These donations are considered non-cash donations.

Please note, the donor’s broker will provide the donor with a tax receipt for the fair market value on the day of shares transferred. FIRC will send the donor an acknowledgment letter that describes the gift of stock, including the ticker, the number of shares and the date of the donation. The acknowledgment letter from FIRC cannot list the value of the stock since as a nonprofit, FIRC does not assign value to securities or gifts in-kind. 

To help you facilitate a gift of stock, please use the following instructions:

  1. Provide FIRC a notification of donor intent. Regardless of the method chosen to deliver a gift of stock, the donor or the transferring broker should provide the following information to FIRC, for audit and acknowledgment purposes:
  2. FIRC’s broker can provide the donor and donor’s broker with the information to facilitate a transfer of stock. Please send an e-mail or call FIRC’s broker for transfer instructions: Bridget Hattingh, Financial Advisor, Edward Jones Investments, Phone: 970-455-8410, Email: bridget.hattingh@edwardjones.com

Some stock donations do not provide donor information to FIRC, please email Sarah Grant at sarahg@summitfirc.org to ensure your gift is acknowledged.

Planned Giving

Support a legacy to building stronger families and a stronger community. Please consider FIRC in your estate or legacy plans through a will, trust, retirement plan, life insurance policy, or life-income gift.
Email Sarah Grant, sarahg@summitfirc.org to set up a meeting to discuss how your gift can support FIRC.

Bequest

A bequest is a gift you make to FIRC through your will or trust which indicates your desire to leave something of value toward FIRC’s future work. A charitable bequest can be a specific dollar amount or a percentage of the value of your total estate, a gift of stock or life insurance, or even a gift from an IRA or other qualified retirement plan. Because these assets often carry a heavy income tax obligation to your heirs, they can be a particularly attractive source for funding your charitable gifts.

Email Sarah Grant, sarahg@summitfirc.org to set up a meeting to discuss how your gift can support FIRC.

Food Donations

FIRC offers Summit County’s largest free Food Markets and relies upon generous donations from community partners like you! Without donations, FIRC would not be able to keep the food market shelves stocked. Thank you for helping FIRC provide healthy food options to local community members.

Sol Center Capital Campaign

FIRC & Building Hope will be moving into a new state of the art building that will benefit more than a third of all Summit County locals each year. The Sol Center will also result in significant overhead cost-savings of an estimated $200,000 annually. These funds will go directly back to the community in the form of food, medical, mental health, and housing assistance in response to the sustained high demand for supports post-pandemic. Additionally, having FIRC & Building Hope services under one roof increases ease of access, reduces stigma, and encourages clients to seek services they otherwise might not.
