MUTUAL FUND DONATIONS

Mutual fund shares can be a wonderful charitable gift, especially because tax accounting can be challenging if you sell them yourself. Usually, you can only transfer these shares immediately to a charitable organization when it is within the same brokerage house or through a discount broker. More often, the charity must create its own account with that mutual fund, through which it receives and liquidates the donor’s shares. This process can take up to 2-4 weeks.


MATCHING GIFTS

If you work for an organization that has a matching gift program you could double the amount of your donation to Norway House. Many companies will match gifts from current as well as retired employees, spouses, or members of their board of directors. Check with your company regarding its matching gift policy.


IN HONOR OR MEMORY

Gifts can be made to Norway House to honor or commemorate a variety of significant life events. To designate the donation as an honor or memorial gift online, fill out the appropriate fields as you make your online donation, or note the memorial gift on your check.


PLANNED GIVING

Planned giving offers many opportunities for donors to support our programs and receive meaningful tax benefits. Here are some of the most common gift vehicles:

  • Will or Trust Provision

  • Retirement Account Designation or Gift
    (401k, 203b, SEP)

  • Life Insturance

  • Charitable Gift Annuity

  • Charitable Remainder Trust

Using these options, you can make a gift to build Norway House’s endowment, including creating a named endowment fund to leave a personal, lasting legacy. To learn more about planned giving opportunities, please contact Keith Bartz, Norway House’s director of Development, at (612) 871-9044 or kbartz@norwayhouse.org. You may also have a form for Norway House will provisions and the Letter of Intent for a Future Gift sent to your address, or you may pick them up at our offices.

All plaques are displayed in the main lobby of the Albert H. Quie Education Center. Order forms may be picked up at Norway House, or call (612) 871-2211 to request to have one sent to your address.

WORKPLACE GIVING PROGRAMS

Contact your employer’s Human Resources department regarding donor designation of gifts through your workplace giving campaign. Even if Norway House is not a designated charity, it is likely that you will be able to recommend our inclusion in the program, or that you can designate all or a portion of your gift to Norway House by adding a brief letter to your donor form. Please contact Keith Bartz, Director of Development, at (612) 871-9044 or kbartz@norwayhouse.org with any questions.
