Give from a Donor Advised Fund. If you are among the growing number of Americans with a Giving Fund (also known as a Donor Advised Fund), now would be a great time to designate some of those already-donated funds to keep us on track and moving forward. Sponsoring organizations such as Fidelity, Vanguard, Schwab, National Christian Foundation, Barnabas Foundation, and many others have made this a very popular and smart way to give!
Create an Online Will. According to Google, CNBC, and other sources, interest in online wills and estate planning has surged in recent weeks! If you are among the many people who are using this extra at-home time to get your “house in order” we suggest using the free will-making tool from Mama Bear Legal Forms – a Dave Ramsey-endorsed provider.
Other Ways to Give:
- Scholarship Funds through the EITC & OSTC tax credit programs for businesses and individuals
- Special Interest Tax Deferment – Your PA personal income tax in excess of $3,500 annually could support HMS scholarships through a PA tax credit for up to 90% of your gift amount.
- Stock or Mutual Funds Shares – Gifts of appreciated stock or mutual fund shares to HMS or any church or charity may cost far less than giving cash.
For more information about these and other ways to support HMS, contact Jody Fausnight, HMS Director of Advancement at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 717-354-7100 x1005.
