Your donor-advised fund is a great way to make a one-time gift or create a recurring gift for even more impact. 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. Contact our Development Director, Kristin Bogart, if you have questions.

Make a lasting impact with the National Fragile X Foundation’s Planned Giving program. 

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. Learn about gifts of cash, securities, and property, and which options provide tax and income benefits. We would be happy to help you discover the best planned gift to meet your goals. Email our Development Director, Kristin Bogart, for more information.

Like stocks and others assets, donating cryptocurrency to a nonprofit, like the National Fragile X Foundation, can provide greater tax benefits to you than gifts of cash. You can donate crypto directly through our online giving portal (select “donate crypto” underneath the blue DONATE button).

We also partner with Endaoment, a donor-advised-fund/community fund, to receive on-chain donations.

Please let us know if you have any questions!

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:

See if your employer will match your donation
If you find your employer, after you make your donation, we will provide steps to apply for the match as easy as possible for you. If your employer does not appear in the search, we are not aware of a matching program.

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.
