Thank you for your interest in supporting NKC!
Every gift makes a difference to North Kent Connect. Donors can choose whether to share an undesignated monetary gift or support a specific fund. Donors may give their gift in memory or honor of a loved one, or they can choose from the existing funds to provide food, clothing, and other necessities to our neighbors in need.
Gifts can be made using:
- Cash: A one-time investment via check or cash.
- Recurring Bank Transfers: A scheduled contribution directly from your savings or checking account.
- Credit Cards: A simple way to give by phone, mail, or online.
- Securities and Mutual Funds: Whether these funds are offered via paper or electronic transfer, any depreciated securities should be sold before gifting to realize the loss for tax purposes.
Matching Gifts can more than double a gift if the donor's or spouse's employer offers such a benefit. Often, the process begins with a simple form from the employer's human resource or public relations office.
Charitable Gift Annuities and Charitable Remainder Trusts empower a donor to transfer a gift of cash, securities or property in exchange for a lifetime income.
Charitable Lead Trusts offer income North Kent Connect for a set number of years, after which the remaining funds may be transferred back to the donor or heirs.
Bequests through a will or living trust enable a donor to commit a substantial gift after his or her lifetime.
Insurance or pension gifts are another option for making a significant impact, when donors name North Kent Connect as a direct or contingency beneficiary.
