Gifts in kind

We will gladly accept gifts-in-kind that benefit our programs as well as items for the silent and live auctions at our annual Global Compassion Cup Golf Classic in August.  The gift must be appraised so that a donation receipt can be issued for the gift’s fair market value.
Examples of Items for programs:

Planned giving

In addition to maximizing your tax benefits, planned giving is a powerful way to leave behind a legacy and a message of hope for future generations.  From remembering The Mary A. Tidlund Charitable Foundation in your will to making The Mary A. Tidlund Charitable Foundation the beneficiary of a Life Insurance policy, there are options available to donors who are interested in planned giving.

Employer matching gift programs

Did you know that many companies support their employees by offering matching gift programs?  You could double the impact of your gift by asking your employer to make a donation of equal value.  Ask your employer if they offer a charitable gift matching program.
