Do you accept workplace matching gifts?
Yes! Numerous companies have developed programs that enable their employees to give back to their communities through payroll deductions, matching gifts and compensation for volunteer hours. Companies usually match donations at a 1:1 ratio, but some will match at a 2:1, 3:1, or even a 4:1 ratio. Please contact your Human Resources department to discuss any of these option.
I am a federal employee. Can I give to your organization through workplace giving?
Yes! For federal employees, C.A.S.T. is a member of the Combined Federal Campaign and can be referenced by the CFC #12017.
How can I make a contribution from my IRA?
The government allows IRA owners who are 70 1/2 or older to contribute up to $100,000 from their IRA to a qualified charity, like the C.A.S.T. for Kids Foundation, each year. You do this by asking your IRA custodian to transfer money directly from your IRA to the charity, without ever taking the distribution yourself.
The funds you contribute will count toward your annual required minimum distribution. This gift will not entitle you to take a charitable income tax deduction, but you will not have to pay taxes on the withdrawal.
