Memorial or tribute gift
When you give a memorial or tribute gift for Plan International USA to honor someone special, you’re expressing your love, admiration, and gratitude in one of the most meaningful ways there is. Your gift will honor your loved one, create a lasting tribute, and clear the barriers for girls that are keeping them from the futures they want for themselves.
Gifts of appreciated securities
You can use stocks, bonds, and mutual funds that have appreciated in value to support our shared vision. You may receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value of the stock (up to a maximum of 30% of your adjusted gross income) and avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the value of the stock.
Corporate matching gifts
Did you know that your gift to Plan International USA could be matched by your employer? If you or your spouse work for a company that matches charitable gifts, just request a matching gift form from your human resources department or download it from your company’s website. Send your signed and completed form to Plan International USA with your gift, and we’ll do the rest.
Qualified charitable distribution
You can transfer funds from your IRA directly to Plan International USA. This is an effective way to have an immediate impact and ensure our work of promoting children’s and girls’ rights. Here’s how it works:
- You must be 70 ½ or older.
- An individual may transfer up to a total of $100,000 per year and a married couple may give up to $200,000 to all organizations.
- Your gift must be transferred directly from the IRA account to Plan International USA.
- Your gift is a transfer of funds from your IRA to Plan International USA, so it does not count as income for the year.
- If you are 72 and older, the transfer of funds counts towards your annual Required Minimum Distribution from your IRA.
You can download a sample letter for your IRA administrator here to start the distribution process. You may also be able to request a qualified charitable distribution through your online account portal.
Please note: If you are still working and contributing to a retirement account, this gift could impact your taxable income. Please consult a qualified advisor before making a gift.
The impact of your giving
$1,000 could protect 20 girls from criminal activities.
You help educate young people and their communities about the dangers of trafficking, and provide girls with real training and job opportunities so that they can take back control of their lives. This is how, together, we can stop traffickers in their tracks.
$10,000 could make a real impact on girls’ fight for equality.
The programming you support might provide clean water to a community, or organize girl-led community conversations about preventing child marriage, or bolster a young entrepreneur’s small business. No matter what, every gift to Plan supports girls and their dreams for the future.
$20,000 could provide the gift of sponsorship forever.
Your gift will be invested in our Plan International USA Sponsorship Endowment Account, and the earnings will be used to pay for your annual sponsorship for one child. Whenever a sponsored child graduates, a new child will be selected for sponsorship according to your instructions.
