Ways To Give
All of us at Ontario ARC feel fortunate to be part of a community that has a true philanthropic spirit. With many worthwhile organizations to choose from, we are honored when a donor selects ours. There are various ways to support Ontario ARC, our Foundation and the many individuals and families we serve each day, including:
One of the easiest ways to support Ontario ARC is in the form of cash or check. We also appreciate cash pledges that are payable over time.
Planned giving covers a broad category of giving options, including Bequests, Retirement Assets, Stocks, Life Insurance and Charitable Trusts. Please consult with your Estate Planning advisor for additional details.
Also known as non-cash gifts, a gift-in-kind is a type of charitable giving in which, instead of giving money to buy needed goods and services, the items and/or services themselves are given. Gifts-in-kind may include gifts of property, artwork, equipment, securities, food, clothing, furniture and even labor.
Memorials & Honorary Contributions
A memorial or honorary gift is a wonderful way to recognize a loved one who has passed away or to honor someone special in your life. In addition to increasing awareness for Ontario ARC, these gifts enable us to carry out our mission and work. To say “thank you,” our staff sends acknowledgement cards to all donors.
Ontario ARC values the wonderful relationships we have with companies in our community and are grateful for their unwavering support of our vital programs and special events. Many of these businesses also offer a Matching Gifts program, helping to increase donation amounts to our agency. Please check with your employer’s Human Resources Department for more information.
For more information about any of the above ways to give, please consult with your financial advisor or contact Michele Wistner, director of development, at (585) 919-2156.
