  • Employer's Matching Gift Program

    Gifts to Barstow may be doubled or even tripled through matching gifts programs, whereby many companies match contributions made by their employees. Your Human Resources department will be able to provide information specific to your company.
  • Donate Stocks and Securities

    Stocks, bonds or mutual funds often provide an even greater tax benefit than other types of gifts. If you give appreciated stocks (held for at least a year), you can save taxes twice—take a charitable deduction for their full market value and save the capital gains you would incur if you sold them.
