Special Giving Opportunities
Planned giving is an excellent way to make a significant donation to saving lives through the work of LifeStream.
Bequest in your will ensures that your legacy will live on through the continuing medical programs and research at LifeStream.
Annuities and trusts provide personal income to you or someone else for life, offering immediate tax benefits to you and benefiting LifeStream later. These planned giving opportunities also qualify for income and estate tax deductions.
Gifts of personal property, real estate, life insurance, works of art or even rare coins provides you with the knowledge and satisfaction that you have made a difference. Gifts of real property are usually fully tax-deductible at fair market value.
Tribute and Memorial Gifts
Tribute gifts support the LifeStream mission and help fund bloodmobiles and other equipment to ensure an adequate, safe blood supply for our community, and help advance lifesaving programs and services. There are two types of tribute giving: Tribute gifts and memorial gifts. When you make a tribute or memorial gift to LifeStream, the person you designate is immediately sent a letter acknowledging your gift in his or her name. The amount of your gift is shown only on the receipt mailed back to you. Every gift is tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law. The donor receives an acknowledgment of his or her donation.
A gift made in honor of a loved one is a meaningful way to recognize a special occasion or milestone (Birthday, Anniversary, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, holiday, etc.)
A gift in memoriam is a special way to honor a loved one by donating to in their memory. It’s a meaningful way to pay tribute and show how they live on in your heart.
Matching Gift Programs
The effects of your generosity can easily be multiplied with a matching gift from your employer. Some companies offer matching gift programs. Ask if yours is one who does.
You can provide permanent support for LifeStream’s research and life-giving programs through an endowment.
Join together with a group of friends, neighbors or a group of volunteers who wish to support LifeStream. These valuable guilds often are centered around particular interests, neighborhoods or communities.
