Your gift to Wigs 4 Kids will help us to continue our mission of improving the self-esteem of Michigan children for years to come! There are many ways to make a charitable contribution; see below for details.
Gifts of Cash - Cash contributions are a quick and easy way to show your support of Wigs 4 Kids. Simply write a check or make a cash donation. If your employer has a matching gifts program, you could double or even triple your donation to Wigs 4 Kids.
If your (or your spouse's) employer matches gifts, please obtain the necessary form and enclose it with your contribution.
Note: Your gift is tax deductible to the extent provided by law.
Gifts of Securities - Contributions of stock or other securities are a welcome gift at Wigs 4 Kids. If you contribute appreciated securities that you have held for one year or more, there are potential capital gain benefits.
Bequests - By leaving a bequest to Wigs 4 Kids in your will, you will make a lasting contribution to help the kids. You may designate a specific amount, a percentage of your total estate, or a share of the residue after gifts to your heirs.
Living Trusts - When you choose a living trust, you can provide for yourself and your family before and after your death. You may arrange a contribution through a living trust by naming Wigs 4 Kids as a beneficiary.
Gifts of Retirement Plans - You may name Wigs 4 Kids as beneficiary of your pension, 401k, IRA or other retirement plan. This gift could be the most cost-effective that you can make, because you avoid the possible double taxation on retirement plan assets left to your heirs.
Gifts of Real Estate - Your charitable contribution of real estate - a personal residence, farm, vacation home, commercial real estate or vacant land -- is a tax-wise gift that has income and capital gains tax advantages.
Gifts of Life Insurance - When your life insurance was originally purchased, you obviously had a need for the benefits. Perhaps today you do not need the coverage. To contribute your life insurance policy, simply name Wigs 4 Kids as its owner and beneficiary. You may also name Wigs 4 Kids as a partial beneficiary.
