Explore the Many Ways to Give
The most common way to give is an online one-time or monthly recurring donation. Here we present some of the many other wonderful ways you can help support our mission to provide unwavering support for families affected by Fragile X, and our relentless pursuit of a cure.
NFXF Leadership Partners
Our Leadership Partner Program is a great way to provide ongoing support to the foundation. Join the 50+ families who have pledged their support with a minimum of $1,200 per year. Let us know if you have questions about the Leadership Partner Program.
Matching Gifts & Payroll Deductions
Matching Gifts: Many organizations have matching gift programs in place to supplement their employees’ charitable contributions, which means you can double or even triple your donation. In fact, you can check to see if your employer has a matching gift program right now:
Payroll Deductions: Many employers also can set up automatic, tax-deductible donations as payroll deductions directly from your paycheck. It’s an easy, no-fuss way to give. Check with your human resources department about these options, or contact us if you have questions or want to learn more.
Gifts of Stock or Appreciated Assets
Gifts of appreciated assets, such as stocks, bonds, or mutual funds, held for a year or more may provide a greater tax benefit to you than gifts of cash. Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value and you avoid paying capital gains tax on the current value over the original cost of the asset. We can help with instructions on how to complete a stock transfer.
Donor Advised Funds
A donor-advised fund is a charitable giving vehicle established by an individual or family and administered by a non-profit (the sponsor organization). The donor recommends investments and grants, and the sponsor organization administers distributions. The National Fragile X Foundation accepts donations made through donor-advised funds. Contact us to learn more.
Bequests (such as through a will) are the simplest planned gifts. By naming the National Fragile X Foundation in your will or trust, you can make a gift that assures the future of our programs. There are many planned giving vehicles available. Please contact us to learn more about how to include the NFXF in your estate or to discuss planned giving options.
