Giving is easy when you elect to pledge. Choose the option that best meets your needs – payroll deduction, bill me later (one time, monthly or quarterly) or set up a recurring credit card payment.
Gifts of Stock
Giving stock or securities to United Way of Central and Northeastern Connecticut is a strategic way to invest in positive community change. By contributing long-term appreciated securities to United Way, you may avoid the capital gains tax that would otherwise be due if you sold the securities and retained the proceeds.
Individual Retirement Account Required Minimum Distribution
You can support United Way of Central and Northeastern Connecticut’s mission and receive tax benefits in return with this popular gift option commonly called the IRA charitable rollover. If you have an IRA, your first required minimum distribution must be taken when you reach age 73. You can give from your IRA distribution directly to United Way without increasing your adjusted gross income.(Please consult your financial/tax advisor to determine your required minimum distribution and tax implications associated with your IRA charitable rollover gift.)
Donor Advised Fund
If you have a Donor Advised Fund with a third party, you can recommend that funds be granted to United Way of Central and Northeastern Connecticut to be invested in our mission-aligned work.
Two additional donation fulfillment options are available to Tocqueville Society members:
Philanthropy Fund is an exclusive program for members of United Way’s Tocqueville Society to help you meet all your charitable giving needs.

Throughout the calendar year, you can contact the United Way Philanthropy Fund administrator to direct your gift to nonprofit organizations of your choice. As a “thank you” for your generosity, no fees will be deducted from designations made through the Philanthropy Fund program.
