Workplace Matching Gifts Programs
Many corporations have matching gift programs and will match your donation to a charitable organization. Ask your employer if this is possible and double your contribution to IFFGD.

Combined Giving Campaigns
If your workplace participates in a combined giving campaign such as United Way, you can quickly and easily designate IFFGD as the beneficiary of your donations. Simply find the blank “Write-in Other Organization” space at the bottom of your pledge card and fill it in with the following information: International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD), PO Box 170864, Milwaukee, WI 53217; Federal Tax ID# (EIN): 39-1710898

Assets, Stocks, and Securities
Gifting appreciated assets (specifically equities or stocks) can provide a significant tax advantage. Your gift would provide you an income tax deduction equal to the current value of the asset, a higher value than your original cost. As long as the asset is classified as long term capital gains property (held for at least 12 months), you also avoid paying capital gains taxes on the growth of the asset.
