Give At Work
LICMN member charities participate in employee giving campaigns in corporate, state, and municipal workplaces throughout the country. Look for them in your company's giving list. If you don't see them, call (855) 439-7286 for information on how to add them to the list.
Write A Check
There's nothing wrong with giving the old fashioned way. If you write a check to the federation the proceeds will be shared with all the member charities. Our mailing address is 100 Smith Ranch Road, Suite 122, San Rafael, CA 94903.
If you own shares of a stock, mutual fund, or other type of security, you can donate all or some of those shares to Local Independent Charities of Minnesota. The sale of your securities qualifies as a tax-exempt donation. Contact Lisa Fierro at (855) 439-7286 for more information.
Making charitable bequest in your will or trust gives you the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy as well as reduce your estate tax. You can give a specific sum of money, a percentage of your estate, or what remains of your estate after you have provided for all your other beneficiaries. You can make an unrestricted gift, which allows the charities to use your funds as they see fit, or you can restrict your gift to fund only certain types of programs you specify. For more information please contact us at (855) 439-7286.
