Your envelope must be postmarked no later than December 31 of a given year to take advantage of qualifying tax benefits on your tax return for such year.

Pledge

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

Individual Retirement Account Required Minimum Distribution

You can support United Way of Central and Northeastern Connecticut’s vision and receive tax benefits in return with this popular gift option commonly called the IRA charitable rollover. You must take your first required minimum distribution from your IRA by April 1 in the year after you reach age 72. 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

Philanthropy Fund is an exclusive program for members of United Way’s Tocqueville Society to help you meet all your charitable giving needs. To open a Philanthropy Fund, you must contribute a minimum annual gift of $10,000 of which at least $5,000 is allocated to United Way to support the organization’s work. 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.

United Way Private Label Donor Advised Fund

United Way of Central and Northeastern Connecticut’s Private Label Donor Advised Fund offers Tocqueville Society members a low cost, flexible vehicle for charitable giving. Our comprehensive, streamlined system makes giving to United Way and the causes you care about fast and simple. When you establish a donor advised fund, you will receive an immediate tax benefit with the ability to distribute grants over time, even in a different tax year. An initial contribution of $15,000 is required to open a donor advised fund with a minimum of 20% of the contribution being allocated to a designated fund to support the work of United Way of Central and Northeastern Connecticut.
