The Heartbeet Lifesharing community is a model in which short-term and long-term volunteers share their lives with adults with disabilities to create a healing, meaningful and joyful life for all. We depend in large measure on contributions from interested friends, families, corporations, and foundations to fulfill our mission. We hope the following information will be useful as you consider how and to what extent you are able to support Heartbeet Lifesharing.
Gifts of Cash
Gifts of cash are the easiest and most direct way to make a contribution and are fully deductible for individuals who itemize their federal income tax return. If you make a cash, check, or credit card gift, you will be eligible for a deduction for the full value of your gift.

Gifts of Appreciated Securities (Stock)
If you gift stocks or bonds that you have owned for at least one year, you will be eligible for a deduction for the full mean market value of the security on the date that Heartbeet Lifesharing receives it. You not only receive an income tax deduction for the full fair market value of your securities, but you also avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation.
Many employers or former employers if you are a retiree, will match your charitable contribution. This often doubles or even triples your initial gift! Obtain a matching gift form from your human resources department and enclose it with your contribution to Heartbeet Lifesharing.
Wills and Bequests
Planned gifts can help you to make a more significant gift to Heartbeet Lifesharing than you ever dreamed possible, and can also provide you, or someone you care for, with an income stream.
