Donations and Ways to Give

Write a Check

Monetary donations to Iroquois are the most common method for giving, and are usually on an annual basis. Gifts of all sizes from $25 to $25,000 and up, in cash, stock or other property can be used by Iroquois immediately. Because of our 501(c)(3) status, these gifts are income tax deductible.

If you are interested in making a donation by check, please send to:

Make a Planned Gift

Many supporters of charitable organizations would like to give more money if they could afford it. Donors can arrange a planned gift now by arranging a gift following their death.


Name an Insurance Beneficiary

You can name Iroquois as a beneficiary for all or part of the policy proceeds following your death. Another income tax benefit is to give the policy itself to Iroquois, and then your premium payment will be considered an annual gift to charity.


Use a Retirement Fund

By filling out a change of beneficiary form, you can name Iroquois the beneficiary to a portion of your income tax-deferred IRA or 401(k) retirement plan.


Include a Charitable Bequest in Your Will

Don’t forget about Iroquois when you make your will. Work with your lawyer to include a charitable bequest or a revocable living trust.


Establish a Charitable Fund

Talk to your banker or investment advisor about setting up a special savings or investment account earmarked charity.


Purchase a Charitable Gift Annuity

This is a way to make a substantial gift and continue receiving an income. Charitable gift annuities combine ongoing income at fixed rate for you or another beneficiary and may provide certain income tax benefits.


Create a Charitable Remainder Trust

Your professional financial and legal advisors can show you other ways to leave a legacy and keep some for yourself.


Make an Employer Matching Contribution

A contribution made by an employee to a not-for-profit organization that is matched by a contribution from the employer multiplies the gift you make. You can even encourage your co-workers to join in the giving.
