A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving vehicle that allows you to make a charitable contribution and then recommend grants over time from the fund to support your preferred causes, like GALEO. Donor-advised funds can easily be set up through a community foundation or financial institutions such as Fidelity, Vanguard, and others. We are experienced in working with all types of DAF hosts.
If you already have a donor-advised fund, you can contact your DAF representative and recommend a gift today.
Did you know that you can support GALEO’s future by adding us to your will? A planned gift is any major gift, made during your lifetime or at death, as part of your overall financial and/or estate planning. Along with annuities and retirement plans, we have several options available for you to consider:
Stocks and Securities
When you gift stocks and other securities directly to a charity, you make an outsized impact without taking money directly out of your bank account. Plus, neither you nor the charity will be taxed on the gains for appreciated assets you donate.
Meet your giving goals, enjoy potential tax benefits, and contribute to the change you want to see. That’s a triple-win.GALEO accepts stock and other securities as charitable donations. Feel free to reach out to us by email at Development@galeo.org to set up the transfer.
We suggest the following language in order to make a bequest to GALEO.
Sample Bequest Language for Wills:
I give [cash of $_________] or [specified property] to GALEO (EIN 20-1565775), to be used for its general purposes.
Wills or Living Trusts
Trusts and wills are another option for planned giving. Your assets are not tied up now yet you may rest assured that they will benefit our Latinx Community in the future.
