Ways to Give
Your generous financial contributions are essential to Horizons Greater Philadelphia’s (HGP) continued growth and success in providing high-quality educational opportunities to Philadelphia-area students. See below for all ways to support Horizons with a gift.
CHECKS & ONLINE GIFTS
The most direct way to give to HGP is a cash gift. Checks can be mailed to: Horizons Greater Philadelphia Inc., 303 W. Lancaster Ave #220, Wayne, PA 19087. Gifts can also be made online with a credit or debit card.
When making an online gift, you have the option to set up a recurring gift on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. Recurring gifts provide critical ongoing support for HGP’s year-round programming.
GIFTS OF STOCKS & SECURITIES
Contact your broker to make a gift of stock or securities to HGP. When contacting HGP for wiring instructions, indicate the name of the stock, number of shares, and the name of the account the stock is being transferred from.
GIVE THROUGH YOUR IRA
As a qualified charity under the IRS, HGP is eligible for an individual to donate up to a maximum of $100,000 of your required minimum distribution from your IRA without paying income tax on this withdrawal. To qualify for this tax deduction, funds must be transferred directly from the trustee of your IRA to the school. This donation will not be eligible as a tax-free qualified charitable IRA distribution if you withdraw the money from your IRA and later donate it. This contribution counts towards satisfying your required minimum distribution. We recommend consulting your tax advisor prior to making a decision relating to this type of contribution.
EMPLOYEE GIVING PROGRAMS
If your employer matches charitable contributions, you can increase your impact by directing their match to HGP. You can also support HGP through employee giving programs such as United Way, Your Cause, and Benevity. HGP's United Way Donor Code is 55128.
