Three ways to maximize your dollars’ impact!

  1. Set up an ongoing quarterly or monthly gift on our secure donation page.
  2. Contact your employer’s Human Resources or Community Relations departments to find out if your gift or volunteer time to Heartland Foundation is eligible for your company’s matching gift program.
  3. When you shop online for anything Amazon offers, login through AmazonSmile and choose Heartland Foundation as the charitable organization you would like to support.

Actual Gifts of Stock

By donating appreciated securities or mutual fund shares, you can provide a lasting contribution while receiving tax benefits, such as capital gains tax savings.

Tax-free IRA Charitable Rollover

A total of up to $100,000 can be transferred directly from IRAs to one or more qualified charities such as Heartland Foundation, free from federal income tax each year. The transfer generates neither a tax deduction nor taxable income, so you still benefit even if you do not itemize your tax deductions. Amounts given through the IRA Charitable Rollover count toward required IRA minimum withdrawal amounts for the year of the gift. Check with you IRA administrator or your tax advisor for more information on how to make such gifts.
