The Ed Fund relies on your support to provide the services we offer to educators and students. Consider giving to the Ed Fund today so we can continue to move towards a more equitable future in public education.

Stocks & Bond

You can donate Stocks & Bonds to the Ed Fund by consulting your broker. Unlike selling the stock and donating cash, donating stocks eliminates the capital gains tax you owe, and maximises the amount given to us! The charity can either immediately sell without needing to pay taxes, or hold onto the stock.

Bequests

A bequest is a donation made through a person’s will or trust. You can add the Ed Fund to your will by talking to your estate lawyer, or go to freewill.com.

Donor-Advised Funds

With a donor-advised fund, a donor makes a large contribution to a fund that is then dispensed to charities and nonprofits, like the Ed Fund, immediately or over time. Through a donor-advised fund, you can designate your money to be used for certain programs. Speak to your financial advisor to set up a fund.

Employer Matching

Some corporations will match employee donations, typically on a 1:1 ratio. Employers can match things such as: cash, stocks, and the value of volunteer time. You can contact your HR Representative to ask to add the Ed Fund to your employer matching program!
