Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday - November 28, 2023

The new year is rapidly approaching and now more than ever, your gift can make a difference in changing the trajectory of lives.

Many of our donors are making the most of their end-of-year gifts this year by giving non-cash assets instead of just cash. The next couple of weeks are crucial to both meeting our goals and helping you meet your financial goals for the upcoming tax season, so I want to share a couple of ways to give back:

  • Make a grant from a Donor Advised Fund: Use funds you’ve already set aside to give today.  
  • Transfer appreciated assets: Save on two types of taxes and get a full deduction for the value of your gift.
  • Give directly from an IRA: Donors 70 ½ or older can reduce their taxable income. If you need to meet a Required Minimum Distribution, IRA gifts can count towards those as well!
  • Donate Cryptocurrency: We accept gifts of cryptocurrency. Donating appreciated cryptocurrency can reduce future taxes.

Giving through assets rather than cash can help supporters make a bigger impact. Your smart gift to United Way of Martin County this holiday season directly supports our work and makes a difference in the lives of many.
