Give Online

Online giving is easy, fast and secure. 

Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
2 Cor 9:7

The Lord is my Shepherd; I lack nothing
Psalm 23:1

Appreciated Securities (stocks, mutual funds, bitcoin)

“By the time you sell the stock and pay the taxes, you’re losing 25% to 35% of the value,” says Kelly Elsensohn, a wealth advisor and certified public accountant (CPA) at WealthSource, a national wealth management firm.

Meanwhile, if you donate the stock directly to a charity, you pay no capital gains tax. You’ll get a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock at the time of the transfer. (Source: Forbes)

Directly from IRA - Tax FREE!

Money from an individual retirement account (IRA) can be donated to charity. What’s more, if you've reached the age where you need to take required minimum distributions (RMDs) from your traditional IRAs, you can avoid paying taxes on the money by donating it to charity.

This tax break was made permanent in 2015.1 You just have to be sure to follow the rules carefully. (Source: Investopedia)


Peer to Peer

Charitable organizations may host a peer-to-peer campaign -- for example, TYM's annual Walk-4-Their Future -- and the organization is not directly asking the community for donations. Instead, the supporters of the nonprofit are creating fundraiser pages and asking their social networks to support their personal fundraising goal resulting in support for the nonprofit. While a P2P campaign always aims to raise funds it ALSO raises awareness of the cause to a host of people that would likely not learn about it otherwise. This expansion of an organization's network is an important part of growth and sustained efforts over the long term.

At TYM, we focus our peer-2-peer efforts during the Spring season as well as calendar year-end. However, we can assist you in launching a personal page any time of the year, for instance in concert with a birthday or anniversary.

In Kind

An in kind donation refers to charitable contributions in the form of goods, services, time, and expertise, instead of cash. Learn more about this alternative form of giving and how it can help your nonprofit organization reach its goals. (Source: Araize)

Planned Giving

Planned Giving (sometimes called Gift Planning or Legacy Giving), enables philanthropic individuals to make larger gifts to charitable organizations than they could make from ordinary income.

Some planned gifts provide life-long income to the donor. Other gift plans use estate and tax planning to provide for charity and heirs in ways that maximize the gift and/or minimize its impact on the donor’s estate.

Thus, by definition, a planned gift is any major gift, made in lifetime or at death as part of a donor’s overall financial and/or estate planning. These include gifts of equity, life insurance, real estate, personal property, or cash. (Source:  | Videos and education at


Company Match

A high-impact, easy to use employee benefit if your current employer or business offers a "corporate or company match". Most companies have a online or paper form, complete it, and submit it. Once processed and approved, the company makes a matching donation to the organization(s) of your choice. The form may ask for the nonprofit's Tax ID and address. TYM's is below for your convenience.

Events & House Parties

Our Walk-4-Their Future is in its 13th year and was initiated by a teenager who volunteered at camp. She wanted to come up with an event that people of all ages and abilities could participate in.

You may have an idea to connect one of your current passions to a cause to make an impact. That impact can be funds raised AND also awareness raised or BOTH. Micro-events -- sometimes called house parties -- can be for 4-12 people doing what you all already like to do -- golf, bocce, quilting, or making a meal together. The options are endless.

TYM's "classic" house party is focused on introducing others to the cause (and not raising funds) and it can be led 100% by you and we will provide resources and guidance. Your guests get to hear about why you support the cause. OR, we can provide for your micro-event a representative from TYM (staff, board, donor or volunteer) who will share a story or two and simply join your event as a participant.
