Information for Contributors
The Re-evaluation Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and contributions are typically tax-deductible for U.S. federal income tax purposes.* The Foundation's paid staff is limited to a part-time business manager which keeps our administrative and overhead costs low, so a high percentage of donations go directly to funded projects.
The Foundation welcomes creative approaches to giving:
- Gifts in lieu of birthday presents or holiday presents (spread the word to friends and family that you'd like such a gift in your name!).
- Gifts in lieu of flowers for funerals and memorials.
- Gifts of stocks, bonds, and real estate. (*)
- Bequests and charitable remainder trusts. (*)
- Designate the Re-evaluation Foundation as a beneficiary of all or a portion of your IRA assets or life insurance policy. (*)
(*) Donors should check with their accountant or tax advisor regarding their individual situations and/or estate planning.

Wire Transfers and Gifts of Stocks or Other Securities
Gifts of securities such as stocks, mutual fund shares, or other appreciated assets can be made to the Re-evaluation Foundation. For more information, please contact Jennifer Roberts, Business Manager, at email@example.com or (650) 380-8717.
Double or even triple your gift's impact! Many employers offer some level of corporate matching for their employees' donations to non-profits. Contact your company's personnel or human resources department to find out if your employer has a matching gift program.
The Foundation is happy to accept contributions in the form of a monthly bank draft.
Credit Cards and On-Line Payment - via PayPal
Please note that donations made via PayPal will be reduced by transaction fees of 2.2% + .30 cents. So for example, if you donate $100, the Foundation will receive $97.50 with the $2.50 difference being paid to PayPal as a fee for the service. Of course, the Foundation is still happy to receive donations via PayPal, but donors should be aware of these costs.
If you have any questions about or problems with donating via PayPal, please email Jennifer at firstname.lastname@example.org
Donors may designate that their contribution be earmarked for a specific fund (i.e. United to End Racism, No Limits for Women, etc.) by including a note to that effect with the donation. All undesignated contributions go to the General Contributions Fund which are used at the discretion of the Foundation Board.
