    Matching Gifts

    Did you know every year, about $6 to $10 billion of matched donations are left unclaimed? Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest. The impact of your gift to our organization may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies also match gifts made by retirees and/or your spouse. Join us today and give the gift of sight.

    Planned Giving

    The question becomes: is it better to give more now or to wait? Deferred giving, such as a bequest or charitable trust, is one of several opportunities to contribute to the Lions Eye Institute Foundation. It allows for immediate tax and estate planning benefits. A deferred gift is an attractive vehicle for donors who need the ongoing income from those assets or trusts. If a deferred gift does not meet your needs, consider the benefits of greater giving now. Professional planning allows you to make a larger gift now and witness the impact of your gift during your lifetime.

    Contributions are tax deductible and all contributions are officially acknowledged by the Foundation. In addition to gifts of cash, donors may provide support to the Foundation and personally benefit from their contributions in other ways. We would be pleased to talk with you about the many opportunities to give.
