Your employer may match your donation to CVV. Contact your HR or payroll department about your company’s matching-gift policy; some even match gifts made by spouses or retirees. When you send us your signed form, the impact of your gift may be doubled, or even tripled.
Qualified Retirement Plans
Naming CVV as a beneficiary in your qualified retirement plan (IRA, KEOGH, 401(k) or 403(b)) could result in more assets being passed to your heirs than if you make a bequest from other funds in your estate.
You can make a lasting contribution toward our mission by considering a bequest to CVV through your will or living trust. Simply include the following language in your will or trust: I hereby give to the Trustees of Colorado Vincentian Volunteers, a Colorado charitable corporation, federal tax identification number 84-1286894, the following described property: the sum of $__________, OR ____ percent (%) of the residue of my estate. Upon request, we are pleased to provide the necessary tax exemption letter to your attorney or financial advisor.
Memorial and Honorary Gifts
Any donation you make can become a tribute gift. For birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, graduations, promotions, holidays, or in memory of someone who has died, you can honor your loved ones with a gift to CVV. Be sure to make note of it along with your check or online donation.
If the stock you donate has appreciated in value from the time of your purchase, you can avoid paying future capital gains tax by donating shares directly to CVV. The full value of the shares at the time of the donation is tax deductible.
Another very easy way to continue your support of CVV is through a life insurance gift. You can purchase a life-insurance policy and bequeath it to CVV. Many people have a whole life policy that is no longer needed to protect you or your family. You can make a change in the beneficiary so that CVV receives the benefit of that policy.
For these methods of giving, please contact CVV for more information and to help you in the process for your generous donation!
