More Ways to Give

When you make a gift to RiverWorks you have the opportunity to choose exactly what program you would like your gift to support as well as giving to where it is most needed.

Workplace Giving

Many companies have different opportunities for their employees to make donations to organizations they care about through a workplace giving program. These programs are set up in varying ways some during specific times of the year while others are open all year. Consult with your HR office to find out if your employer has a matching gift program and what steps are necessary to enroll. 

Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)

Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) allows certain IRA holders, who are 72 or older, the opportunity to withdraw  $100 to $100,000 annually from their Traditional or Roth IRA and deliver the funds directly to a qualifying charitable organization, this may result in a tax-free distribution that may satisfy the client’s required minimum distribution (RMD.) We recommend checking with a tax professional regarding the specifics of your charitable donation.

Donor Advised Funds

How it works

Stock Gifts

Making a stock or real estate gift is an efficient way to meet your charitable giving goals, and maximize tax savings. The appreciation in the stock or real estate is not taxed and you still get a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the stock or real estate.

Important: Gifts of stocks/bonds are typically transferred without information that identifies the donor.  If you wish for your gift to be acknowledged, please notify RiverWorks of gifts of stocks or bonds to ensure that your generous gift is properly identified and receipted for tax purposes. 

Legacy Giving

Supporters can choose to leave a gift in their will or trust as an important way to have a long-term impact, without any upfront cost during their lifetime. 

“Donating to my community is very rewarding when it makes it a better place for everyone to live, work and play. It’s even more so when the company I work for matches my personal donations of cash, check or credit card payments, including donated stocks. “
