WAYS TO DONATE
Building a Brighter Future Today for HHT
Other Gift Types
There are many other ways to give, including through employer matching gifts, in-kind donations, creating a fundraiser, shopping and more.
You can choose one of these additional gift types as a way to support Cure HHT’s mission to find, treat, and cure HHT. Thank you for your generosity!
Employer Matching Gifts
Company Gift Matching is a program that most employers offer to their employees for charitable donations. When you make a donation and report it to your employer through their matching gift program, they will also make a contribution based on a certain percentage of your donation, some even donate 1:1. That's it; no strings attached. This makes your dollars go even further.
To find out more about Company Gift Matching Programs, contact your Human Resources department and ask them if they have a program and how to sign up. You can also choose the company match option through our secure online donation form.
Companies today not only match employee donations, some also encourage them to donate their time for nonprofits and compensate the nonprofit for the employee’s time. Some examples of the giving programs offered by employers are:
- Donations through an employee payroll withholding deduction
- Volunteer support for a charitable event
- Employee matching gifts
- Employee volunteer grants
If your employer has a Matching Gift Form, the process for doubling or even tripling your donation is easy. When you are ready to send your donation to Cure HHT, please include your company's Matching Gift Form. You will be asked to fill in Part 1 (DONOR). Upon receipt, we fill in Part 2 (DONATION RECIPIENT) and confirm either electronically or via hard copy the receipt of your donation. Soon thereafter, we will receive a matching donation from your employer. It’s that simple and can multiply your generous gift to an even larger donation.
Cure HHT is pleased to receive in-kind donations ranging from office equipment and supplies, to airline miles or a vacation stay that can be used as a fundraising raffle or auction item.
The value of the donation for income tax purposes will be made according to IRS guidelines.
Please call us at 410-357-9932 or email us at [email protected] to notify us of your intent to donate in kind.
