Gifts come in all shapes and sizes, and we are grateful for each one of them. We have some creative ways to partner with us and the first two won’t cost you a thing! Here they are:
You can support PCE at no cost every time you shop using your Kroger Plus card. Go to www.krogercommunityrewards.com to register. Find us by name or by using our number, CD704. Once you enroll your card, all linked Plus cards within your household will begin earning funds for Pregnancy Center East. We receive a quarterly reward check based on our participation level. Once a year, you will need to re-register. What an easy way to assist in our life-affirming work!
Your everyday purchases on Amazon.com can benefit Pregnancy Center East through AmazonSmile. Just visit this link to select Pregnancy Center East to receive a charitable donation equal to 0.5% of your total purchase price – at no cost to you! Your shopping experience stays exactly the same.
Contributions of goods are an excellent way to directly impact our clients. We continually need large size diapers, wipes, formula, and cribs with stationary sides.
How about hosting a “Ladies Night Out” or having your book club, Bunko group, or office collect diapers and supplies for PCE once a year? Rally your friends around this effort. Talk to your pastor about hosting a “Christmas in July” or baby shower for PCE. During the summer, donations are very thin and we always need extra baby supplies. Check with your accountant for tax deduction eligibility for in-kind gifts.
Services such as dry cleaning, carpet cleaning, landscaping, snow removal, roofing or painting would greatly help to maintain our facility and lower our operating costs.
Corporate Matching Gifts
Matching gift programs are means by which companies support employee charitable giving. As a 501(c)(3) organization, PCE is eligible to receive such donations. 65% of Fortune 500 companies as well as many smaller companies have matching gift programs. The majority of companies match donations at a 1:1 ratio, although ratios can vary. Check with your employer to see if it has a matching gift program.
United Way Designation
Although we are not a member organization, you can request that your United Way donation be designated to PCE.
Gifts of Stock
Donating stock instead of cash can have benefits for you and be an effective method of supporting PCE. Shares given outright instead of selling them and then donating the proceeds, allows you to avoid capital gains tax and earn a standard tax deduction. PCE does not pay taxes on the donation and can use the entire donation to assist in our mission. Call Laura Curran at 513 321-3103 for more information. Again, be sure to check with your accountant before making any contribution of stock.
You can help couples to choose life for generations to come with a gift that fits into your overall estate or financial plan. Planned giving allows you to make charitable gifts now or after your lifetime. Unlike cash donations, they are typically made from assets in your estate rather than disposable income and come to fruition only upon your death. The most common planned gift is a bequest in your will or living trust. A prevalent misconception is that planned giving is only for the “wealthy.” However, people of modest means can make a difference through planned giving. Contact Ed Donohoe at 513-621-2875 or email@example.com to learn how you can support our mission through a legacy gift.
