Check with your HR department or CEO to see if your company matches charitable gifts: many business double or even triple gifts made by their employees.
You can initiate a gift from your donor-advised fund: Fidelity | Schwab| Silicon Valley Community Foundation | Vanguard
Donors who choose to give appreciated securities may avoid paying capital gains taxes and receive an income tax deduction for the full market value of the donated stock.
Give through your IRA. People aged 70 1/2 and older can make charitable contributions from their retirement accounts to meet the annual required distribution.
We work with a third-party who will have a licensed tow company pick up your vehicle at no cost to you. Then you receive a tax-deduction and Big Wave’s programs benefit! To donate your vehicle or learn more, please visit our page on careasy.org or call 855-500-7433.
As you make your long-term financial plans, we would be honored if you would consider Big Wave as a philanthropic partner.

You will help ensure that the high-quality programs Big Wave offers today will be available for future generations.
