Ways to Make a Campaign Gift

There are many ways you can donate to Project Success that allow you to help more students connect with their futures, while also matching your unique financial situation.

OUTRIGHT GIFT: Gifts of cash or multi-year pledges to be paid over three to five years:

  • Make a campaign gift online today using your credit card.
  • Mail a donation check payable to Project Success at One Groveland Terrace, Suite 300, Minneapolis, MN 55403. For your convenience, you may print out a gift form to help us understand the details of your gift.

GRANTS FROM DONOR ADVISED FUNDS: Single or multiple distributions from your Donor Advised Fund.

GIFTS OF STOCK/SECURITIES: Gifts of publicly traded stock or securities offer significant tax benefits—especially when the donor has a low basis. Donors can avoid capital gains tax and receive a charitable income tax deduction for the current fair market value of the stock – up to 30 percent of adjusted gross income that can be carried forward for up to five years.

IRA DISTRIBUTION: If you are at least 70½ years old, you can ask your IRA administrator to make a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) from your traditional or Roth IRA directly to Project Success, which has some unique benefits:

  • You can give up to $100,000 per year without including the distribution in your gross income. Married couples may be able to give up to $200,000.
  • Amounts given count toward your annual required minimum distribution.

PLANNED GIFTS: Several Project Success contributors have made their gift partially by including the organization in their will, beneficiary designations or other estate-planning techniques. Many planned giving vehicles offer benefits, including tax savings and income for life.

Project Success is a 501 (c) (3) organization under the Internal Revenue Service Code. All contributions are fully tax-deductible.

To discuss gift options in more detail, please contact Emily Heagle, Senior Director of Advancement at 612.874.0776 or emilyh@projectsuccess.org.

Support our Ongoing Programming

“The constant support I received, and am still receiving, from Project Success showed me that with the right resources, kids can truly do anything. I can honestly say this program saved my life.”
