Corporate Match Programs
Some businesses and corporations offer programs to match the gifts their employees make to non-profits. Prior to making your donation, consider checking with your company to see if your contribution can be increased through a corporate match.

Bequests/Planned Giving
A bequest can be directed to a specific program or purpose at Family Network or you can apply it to our general resources. Bequests not specified to any one program will be applied to those program/s with needs we believe are most pressing at the time it is received. So that it can be most useful, we prefer that the terms of a bequest be as general as possible, and ask you to consult us if you are considering a bequest for a specific purpose. For more information about making a bequest please contact Sarah Holliday, Director of Grants at Family Focus - 312-421-5200 ext. 117.

Gifts of Stock

A gift of stock (or other appreciated property) entitles you to a tax deduction for the market value of the donated stock (not just the cost basis).  If the stock you wish to donate has been held for more than one year, you can avoid capital gains tax on any appreciation of the stock by donating the stock prior to sale.  Family Network, a Family Focus Center, benefits by selling the stock without paying taxes on the gain, and you benefit from making a contribution that would be larger than what you might have been able to otherwise donate.  

To ensure that you receive appropriate credit for your stock gift, please contact Jordan Friedman with your information (including name, stock and number of shares).
