Get Your Company Involved
Add the Foundation to your workplace giving program, sponsor an event or conduct your own fundraiser.
Want to do some good while you’re checking your social media accounts? Create a fundraiser on Facebook and share it with your friends. An individual online campaign is the best way for an individual to increase their impact for an organization (especially for those who may not be able to make a large personal donation). Starting a fundraising campaign is an easy and effective way to raise money to provide help and hope to neighbors that need it most. Individuals, corporations, community groups and others can create their own teams and help raise valuable support for those in need. Click on the button below to get started!
Host an In-Person Event
Everyone loves a party! We know we do. We’d like to know more about the fundraising event you would like to conduct in support of the Stephen A. Comunale Foundation. Please fill out our online form to describe your request. When you have submitted the completed form, you will receive an email confirming your submission.
Wills, Trusts and Annuities
Consider including us in your will, trust or estate plan. It’s a simple way to make an impact and leave a lasting legacy. The generosity of donors like you is why we’re able to provide immediate support to those facing a life changing cancer journey. We couldn’t achieve our goals without the commitment, enthusiasm and knowledge of our supporters. A gift through your estate plan can benefit you and your loved ones and help save lives. You can enhance your family’s financial well-being while continuing to support a cause that is near and dear to your heart. Selecting the right charitable estate planning vehicle allows you to reduce your estate and income taxes. It can help you maximize the financial and tax benefits of your gift, and create a larger gift than you thought possible.
Donor Advised Fund Program
Some donors choose to make their charitable gifts through donor advised funds, which allow them to give to their fund and then distribute donations at a later date. The Foundation gratefully accepts donations from donor-advised funds. If you have a fund through Akron Community Foundation, you can direct a gift online through DAF Direct.
Donate by Stock, Bond, or Mutual Fund
By donating stocks, bonds or mutual funds, you can help protect communities and the environment while receiving tax advantages. When you transfer ownership of stock, you receive a charitable tax deduction for its full market value and incur no capital gains tax (subject to IRS deduction limits) on shares held for at least one year.
We will confirm receipt of the gift as soon as we receive it. Please be aware that it may take several days or weeks for the transaction to be completed. If you own stock that is worth less now than when you bought it, it may be advantageous to sell the stock, take a capital loss on your tax return, and donate the proceeds to the Foundation. Consult your financial advisor first about the potential tax benefits.
