You can be a source of hope for families who are facing financial crises but working hard to make 2019 a better year for their loved ones. Your tax-deductible gift provides more than help -- it gives them the hope to persevere.
Donor Advised Fund (DAF) - Allows you to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction and then recommend grants from the fund over time. Contribute to the fund as frequently as you like and recommend grants to Britepaths when its convenient for you.
Employee Matching Programs - Does your company match your charitable giving to non-profits of your choice? If so, let them know you made a contribution to Britepaths and your gift will go even further. Not sure if they do? Use the tool below to find out. Don't forget about the CFC Campaign or the United Way Campaign! If your employer participates in either of these campaigns, consider designating Britepaths. (CFC #82471 and United Way #9661).
Check below to see if your company matches your donations:
Rollover Your IRA - If you're 70 1/2 or older and don't need your IRA's required minimum distribution, you can make a charitable gift of any amount to Britepaths and you will not pay income taxes on any distributions made directly to Britepaths.
Monthly Donations - You can make a larger gift by spreading it over monthly installments. Sign up online today for automatic payments.
Gifts of stocks, bonds, and other securities - You can support our work without even opening your wallet! A gift of your appreciated stock will bring security and promise to the financial well-being of a struggling family, while offering you a tax advantage. Making a gift of stocks, bonds, or mutual funds is simple and easy, and you receive a two-part benefit of receiving an immediate tax deduction and avoiding capital gains tax. The amount of your gift will be determined by the value on the day it is transferred into Britepaths’ account. Click here for a Stock Donation Form.

We appreciate whatever size gift you are able to share, but request a minimum of $10 for credit card transactions. If you prefer to make your gift by check, download our Donation Form (MS Word) (PDF) and mail to our office with your check.
We cannot administer our programs without community support, and we do our best to maximize every penny. Your commitment to help is critical so we can meet the ongoing need. Thank you!
