Give Via Stock

A gift of stock entitles you to a tax deduction for the market value of the donated stock. Avoid capital gains tax by donating stock prior to sale. Illinois Action for Children benefits by selling the stock without paying taxes on the gain, and you make a more significant impact in the lives of Illinois’ children and families.

Give Via A Matching Gift

Your gift can have an even greater impact if your company matches employee charitable giving.

Give Via Work

Designate Illinois Action for Children as the beneficiary of your company’s employee giving program or annual United Way campaign.
