There are many practical and effective ways to provide financial support to the Voices of Women Organizing Project. Here are some suggestions:
- Write a check
VOW depends on contributions that can be put to immediate use to sustain our ongoing campaigns. All gifts – no matter the amount – help ensure that VOW continues to help women and their children escape abuse.
- Donate by credit card
You can contribute through VISA, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express – by mail or online at our secure site. It’s fast, convenient, easy, and safe!
- Make a long-term pledge
To help VOW work, you can arrange to give at regular intervals – yearly, quarterly, or even monthly.
- Give financial securities or property
Many donors find it convenient – and tax-wise – to donate stocks or bonds that have appreciated in value, real estate, or other property.
- Have your gift matched by your employer
Many companies encourage their employees and retirees to support agencies like VOW by matching their contributions dollar-for-dollar. Gifts made by spouses may also be covered. Check with your Human Resources office to see if you qualify.
- Consider a planned gift
One of the best ways to provide for VOW’s future is to arrange now for a gift that will come at a later time. By doing so, you can often afford to make a much larger contribution than you thought possible. There are several attractive options:
- A bequest in your will
Everyone should have a valid, up-to-date will, and you can use this basic planning tool to make a future donation to VOW.
- Life insurance
A policy that is no longer needed (say, because your children are now financially independent) can be donated to VOW to provide a future benefit for the poor.
- Life-income plans
Through a Charitable Gift Annuity, Charitable Remainder Trust, or similar vehicle, you can receive current income, an immediate income tax deduction, estate tax benefits – and the satisfaction of knowing that your generosity will have an impact far into the future.
