Make A Donation

Those who support Foundation For Special People in helping individuals with disabilities live full, rewarding lives do so in many generous ways, both financial and otherwise. If you wish to demonstrate your support of our mission by making a donation, we suggest that you speak with us to determine how best to give. Some of the many ways our supporters help include:

Gifts of Real Estate

The donation of residential or commercial real estate may help avoid capital gains tax (with some exceptions on primary residences). In certain circumstances, you may transfer a portion of the property before the sale and so avoid capital gains taxes on that gift portion.

Gifts of Life Insurance

Naming Foundation For Special People the beneficiary or owner of your life insurance policy, if you find yourself fortunate enough to be able to do so, is yet another simple way of both making a donation and avoiding federal estate tax.

Gifts of Retirement Fund Assets

Naming Foundation For Special People a beneficiary of a retirement fund is an uncomplicated way of giving, requiring only that you submit a beneficiary form to your Fund Administrator.

Donate Online

Thank you for considering making a tax-deductible donation to Foundation For Special People! Your support enables us to continue helping individuals with disabilities build meaningful lives in the community – lives that include real homes, real jobs, and real relationships. It also sends a powerful message – that you truly value the contribution people with disabilities make in the communities in which they live and work.

We are proud of the fact that 90% of all the money we raise goes directly to fund services. So, you can be sure that your investment in Foundation For Special People will pay dividends for the people we serve.

Planned Gifts

There are few gifts as thoughtful as those that ensure the continuation of the mission of Foundation For Special People after your lifetime. All of the above assets may be bequeathed to Foundation For Special People in your will, as well as other valuable property such as artwork and jewelry. Reduced estate taxes are an added advantage. Of course, a will that is already made may be easily modified through a codicil.

How Can I Best Give?

No matter what your situation or your stage in life, we can help you determine the best way to use your gift to Foundation For Special People. We will explain the process to you thoroughly, make your part in it worry-free, and work to ensure that you receive the most generous tax deductions possible.
