Many employers match the donations of their employees, increasing the impact of your gift. Contact your Human Resources office for more information about matching gift opportunities.
Stocks and Bonds
Assets like stocks and bonds make excellent gifts to our Foundation, especially if they have increased in value. Many people contribute these appreciated assets rather than cash because they receive the same tax deductions while avoiding capital gains and transfer fees.
During tough economic times, many people find a planned gift is the best way for them to make a charitable contribution.
Your gift can be in the form of a bequest in your will or living trust. You might also consider Froedtert as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, retirement plan or financial account. Life-income gifts such as a charitable gift annuity or trust can also provide you with immediate tax savings and annual income.
For more information about planned giving, or to receive our financial planning newsletter, visit our Gift/Estate Planning pages. Here you can discover all the tax and income benefits of planned gifts. If you are wondering how a planned gift might work for you, you can refer to our gift calculator, Build Your Gift.

The Foundation is unable to accept gifts of medical equipment such as wheelchairs, walkers, dialysis machines, IV pumps, insulin pumps, etc.
