A tax-deductible gift of any size today will make an impact for years to come.
Here are some of the many ways you can help Hope Services do our work.
Stocks & Other Securities
Shares of securities & IRA can be transferred directly from your brokerage account to the Hope Services account. Simply complete this form and send a signed copy to your broker. Only your broker can initiate the transfer. Some brokerage firms require this letter to be notarized. Please check with your broker for additional requirements.
Please also email your completed form to Hope's Development Department, firstname.lastname@example.org, so we may properly process the gift, even if this is an anonymous donation.
You can become a hero to Hope Services’ clients. By making a commitment of as little as $10 a month, you will make a real difference. Monthly deductions can be made via credit card, electronic funds transfer, or check. To enroll, please download the Monthly Giving Enrollment Form or by selecting Monthly Gift on our online donation form. Become a Hope Hero today!
Honor & Memorial Gifts
Celebrate a special person in your life by making a gift in their honor or memory. You can make the gift online.
Many companies and governmental agencies have programs that enable their employees to make donations through payroll deductions. If you would like to support Hope Services through your workplace giving program, look for “Hope Services” in your workplace giving campaign brochure and write the designation code number on your pledge card. If you don’t find a listing, simply write Hope Services, 30 Las Colinas Lane, San Jose, CA 95119 on your pledge card.
Many employers will match charitable gifts 1-to-1, 2-to-1, or even 3-to-1. Check to see if your company has a matching gift program and about the process for arranging a matching gift.
Create Your Legacy
Plan today to leave a legacy for the future! Make Hope Services part of your future plans to ensure that individuals with developmental disabilities and mental health needs are contributing members of society.
Endowments: The Hope Services Endowment Fund ensures that we are able to meet the growing needs of our clients, now and in the future. By donating, you'll help to ensure a lifetime of our services for our current and future clients. Your gift also helps to offset natural fluctuations in annual fundraising.
Planned Gifts: A gift for Hope Services in your will, trust, or other plans will ensure that individuals with developmental disabilities and mental health needs are contributing members of society.
If you are considering a legacy gift, we would be delighted to confidentially discuss your questions. If you have included Hope Services in your plan, please let us know so that we can thank you and invite you to join our Hope Services Legacy Society. Please contact us at 408-284-2858.
Of course, for more information about planned gifts, we always recommend you work with your tax advisors to determine your most appropriate course of action.
There are a number of ways to support our efforts through planned giving, such as:
- Wills and Trusts: This is one of the most common types of legacy gifts. You can arrange to leave Hope Services a specific dollar amount or asset, a percentage of your estate, or the remainder after specific gifts to loved ones have been made.
- Life Insurance or Retirement Plan: You can name Hope Services as the beneficiary of your individual retirement account (IRA), 401(k), 403(b), donor advised fund (DAF), life insurance policy or other account. These gifts are easy to arrange or modify. Simply complete a beneficiary designation form from your plan administrator to name Hope a beneficiary of all or part of your retirement account or life insurance policy. If the retirement assets are tax-deferred, the portion left to Hope will not be subject to tax.
- Real Estate: There are several options for donating real property that Hope Services will sell to fund our work. Donate your land now, or leave it to Hope Services after your lifetime through your will or trust. You may also be able to donate a remainder interest that allows you to continue using your property for the rest of your life or transfer your property into a charitable remainder trust that provides you with income for the rest of your life.
