Recurring monthly donations

Contribute an amount of your choice on a frequency that works for you. A recurring gift is a way to manage your giving to fit your budget. Designate a “recurring monthly donation” when you make a gift today.

Employer matching

Multiply your gift by taking advantage of your Employer Matching Gift Program. Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. Contact Sandie Shoemaker, Development Director, at 831-425-0658 x 224 or email sshoemaker@kirby.org for assistance.

Stock

A charitable gift of appreciated stock may provide an opportunity for tax savings while generously supporting Kirby. It is not our position to offer tax or legal advice. Before you make a gift of stock or mutual funds — particularly a significant gift — be sure to talk with your professional financial advisor to determine how such a gift may affect your overall financial plan, and consult your tax advisor for more detailed information about the tax consequences of your gift. Contact Sandie Shoemaker, Development Director, at 831-425-0658 x 224 or email sshoemaker@kirby.org for assistance.
