“Bee’s ultimate remission wasn’t when she rang that bell in Doernbecher at the end of her last chemo treatment, it was this amazing June day as she walked tall out of a camp that had healed her and given her back her confidence as a friend, and a human being.”

Matching gifts – Many employers will match, or even double, gifts to important community non-profits such as UKANDU. Ask your employer if they will be able to help you in our mission of providing hope, joy, and connection to those impacted by childhood and adolescent cancer.
Donate investment assets – By donating investments, you may be able to further our mission while improving your tax situation more than simply donating cash. When you donate securities to UKANDU, you may be able to receive a charitable tax deduction for the market value of the investment, and not incur capital gains (subject to IRS rules and limitations) as you would if you were to sell an appreciated asset. If you have assets that have not grown in value, an in-kind donation might not be your best option, and we encourage you to discuss your specific situation with your tax or financial advisor. If you have questions about the possibility of donating investment assets, please contact us, and our team will be happy to talk through your options.
Donate other assets – other than publically traded securities, such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, there are other assets that you can donate to help us in our mission of bringing hope, joy, and connection to communities impacted by childhood and adolescent cancer. Please contact us if you have other assets that you are interested in donating to UKANDU.
Gifts from retirement accounts – If you are over the age of 70 and ½ you may be able to send funds directly from a retirement account to UKANDU, using what is known as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). By utilizing a QCD you may be able to exclude the gift amount from your taxable income, unlike normal distributions from retirement accounts. And, if you are subject to Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs), a Qualified Charitable Distribution can be applied towards your RMD amount.
Charitable entities – Whether or not you already have a charitable entity (such as a Donor Advised Fund, Charitable Trust, Family Foundation, Charitable Annuity, etc.) set up or are interested in doing so, our team can help you think through your options and decide the best way to make the most impact based on your personal financial plan.
Legacy planning- Join our Legacy Campfire Group by including UKANDU in your will, trust, or as a beneficiary of your retirement accounts or insurance policies. These legacy gifts can have an especially powerful impact on our mission of bringing hope and joy while maximizing your flexibility and options during your life. Please contact us to learn more!
