Many companies have workplace giving campaigns where a portion of your paycheck can be deducted in support of a charitable cause. Ask your HR department if your company has a workplace giving campaign and select the Epilepsy Foundation of Connecticut.
Many corporations also have matching gift programs and will match your donation to accredited charitable organizations such as the Epilepsy Foundation of Connecticut. It’s an easy way to double or even triple the impact of your personal contribution to find a cure and overcome the challenges created by epilepsy. Ask your employer if they participate in a matching gift program and complete the necessary paperwork to have your gift matched.
Do It Yourself Events (DIY)
Ever think about holding a bake sale? Car wash? Company dress down day? These are just some of the many DIY events that people have done for us over the years. There are so many different types of fundraisers you can organize to support people with epilepsy! We will send you guidelines and help with promotions so your event can be a success. If you are interested in holding a DIY Fundraiser, please reach out to Elizabeth Styblo at firstname.lastname@example.org or 860-346-1924.
Gifts of Stock
Do you own stock or mutual fund shares that have increased in value? Giving appreciated assets is one of the most tax-efficient ways to make charitable donations.
Make an Impact! A bequest from a will or a living trust lets you make a gift of any size to the Epilepsy Foundation of Connecticut. When making an estate gift, you allow us to invest in new endeavors to support those living with epilepsy and help to ensure the Foundation is here for decades to come. By doing so you are able to receive a current income tax deduction and reduce your potential estate taxes in the future.
