Grand Circles of Giving

Grand Circles of Giving is Girls Group’s recurring monthly giving program.

Members of this giving program receive added recognition by Girls Group along with the convenience of not having to think about their donation throughout the year.

For Girls Group, it is predictable income that allows for long range planning. This is vitally important because many Girls Group programs follow the school year calendar which often is organized months in advance of the beginning of the school year.

If you are interested in joining a unique group of individuals who believe education is the pathway to opportunity and self reliance, please consider making a donation at one of the levels listed below by selecting the corresponding monthly donation amount with the circle that’s right for you.

PLATINUM CIRCLE
$6,000 Annual Contribution
$500 per month

GOLD CIRCLE
$3,000 Annual Contribution
$250 per month

SILVER CIRCLE
$1,200 Annual Contribution

Stocks or Appreciated Securities

Making a stock gift is a tax-effective way to support a cause using your appreciated assets. In doing so, your gift qualifies for a tax deduction based on the full market value of the transferred stock. As an added bonus, if the stock has appreciated in value, this will also allow you to avoid the capital gains tax associated with the sale.

To make a gift of stock to Girls Group:

  1. NOTIFY GIRLS GROUP OF THE GIFT
    • In order to track your gift as it is made and attribute it properly, Girls Group needs to be made aware that a stock transfer donation is on its way.
    • Please email Sue Schooner at sue@girlsgroup.org to initiate this process.
  2. PROVIDE YOUR BROKER WITH THIS INFORMATION:
    • Broker:
      Charles Schwab

    • All DTC Eligible Securities

  3. NOTIFY GIRLS GROUP WHEN THE TRANSFER IS COMPLETE

Legacy Giving

Legacy Giving is a broad term that encompasses the many possible avenues that exist to support a cause you care deeply about in an intentional way for the future. Whether it is estate planning, a gift annuity, a lead trust or donations of real estate, Girls Group is prepared to talk about how you can leave a legacy of support for the organization as it continues its efforts to empower the next generation of leaders in perpetuity.

If you are ready to have that conversation, please email Sue Schooner at sue@girlsgroup.org to discuss the different options currently available.
