Other Ways to Contribute
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees.
If your company is eligible, submit a matching gift with these two easy steps:
- Request a matching gift form from your employer and fill it out
- Send it to Youth Enrichment Services: Youth Enrichment Services, Development Office 412 Massachusetts Ave, Boston MA 02118
We will do the rest. The impact of your gift to Youth Enrichment Services may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
For any questions, contact [email protected].
A gift of stock provides increased value to YES at a decreased cost to the donor. The benefits include the following:
- A charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the stock;
- Elimination of the capital gains tax that would ordinarily become due if you had sold the stock on the open market and donated the proceeds of the sale to YES.
