Stretch Those Donation Dollars

MC910217106We are often asked about programs that let our supporters do more with their donation. Here are some ways to have a greater impact on Down syndrome cognition research.

Holiday and milestone gifts – Many supporters ask their friends and family to donate to us instead of receiving a holiday gift. We have a variety of e-cards to send so you can honor a loved one or be remembered yourself with a gift to LuMind RDS Foundation.

Recurring gifts – Planned giving allows you to make a commitment to our organization on your schedule. Just check recurring donation on our donation page to set up a recurring gift.

Corporate matching – Many companies will match charitable contributions made by their employees. Corporate matching is a wonderful way to increase your gift to LuMind RDS Foundation allowing us to fund even more research.

Giving programs – Remember us during planning giving opportunities with the Combined Federal Campaign (12089) and United Way. For the CFC, we are still listed as Down Syndrome Research and Treatment Foundation.

Stock transfer – We are able to accept stock dividends as a donation. Just get in touch with us for the information.

Shopping programs – Many organizations, like Amazon Smile, have ways to send a portion of your shopping to a charity. We are registered with several sites, sometimes still as RDS or DSRTF. Check it out before you shop!

Corporate partnerships – We enjoy support from a number of corporations to sponsor events or programs. Check out our events page or get in touch with us for ideas!

Planned giving – We are able to work with you to set up legacy gifts, life insurance, and securities to benefit cognition research. Just ask.

Events – Consider hosting an event that benefits the LuMind RDS. We have lots of ideas and toolkits for all types of events. Pool your giving resources by encouraging your friends and family to donate – and have a fun time!

Let us know what you need to stretch your donations dollars. We can register with new sites and companies or provide nonprofit information so you can make your donation go further. Get in touch at LuMind@LuMindFoundation.org.
