Corporate Giving: There are many ways businesses also can support Coalition! If you have questions about any of the following options, please contact us!

Donor-Advised Funds: Take advantage of greater tax deductibility in a single year by making contributions to a donor-advised fund, helping you reach the new itemized deduction threshold. Annual distributions can be made from that fund to the Coalition each year.

Gifts in Memory or in Honor of Someone: Recognize the importance of friends and loved ones while supporting the organization you love. With a memorial or honorary gift, you can celebrate a special occasion, honor the life of someone close to you, or express gratitude.

Matching Gifts: Increase your impact with a matching gift. Many companies offer a matching gift program for employees that can double or even triple the contribution. Retired employees, directors, and spouses are often eligible to participate in select programs. All matching gifts count toward your total contribution to the Coalition. Check if your employer will match your donation.
