Donations by Check or Cash
Please make your check payable to Covenant Woods and note on the memo line how you would like your gift used (e.g., “Covenant Program”). Gifts of cash should be accompanied by the same information in writing. Mail contributions to the above address.
Gifts of Stock
Gifts of appreciated securities can be advantageous to the donor, possibly providing a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the stock at the time the gift is made, while avoiding capital gains tax on increased stock value. The value of the gift of stock is based on 100% of the stock’s value on the date you transfer your shares to Covenant Woods. Call, or ask your broker to call the Development Office at 804.569.8004.
Gifts in Kind
Covenant Woods welcomes donations of items appropriate for use by Covenant Woods, as well as contributions for resale in our second-hand shop, the “Ruth Shoppe,” or through a second party. Gift value is determined by the donor as specified by the Internal Revenue Service.
Corporate Matching Gifts
Donors can double their gift dollars if they or their spouses work for, or are retired from, a matching-gift company. To do so, Donors should request their company’s matching gift form and include it with their donation. Covenant Woods will confirm the gift and match through an acknowledgment letter to the donor.
