Other Ways to Give

Help us bring the gifts of fun, fitness and friendship to future generations of children, teens, and young adults with disabilities! There are many ways to give to KEEN Greater DC and make it possible for KEEN to continue offering its innovative programs completely free of charge for many years to come.  When you give to KEEN Greater DC-Baltimore through donor advised funds, stocks, matching gifts or other long term financial plans, you are joining your life legacy with our mission to foster the self-esteem, confidence, skills and talents of our KEEN athletes.

Donor Advised Funds
A donor-advised fund, or DAF, is a charitable investment account for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations. When you contribute cash, securities, or other assets to a donor-advised fund, you are generally eligible to take an immediate tax deduction, and you can recommend grants to any eligible IRS-qualified public charity, like KEEN Greater DC.  Donor-advised funds are the fastest-growing charitable giving vehicle in the United States because they are one of the easiest and most tax-advantageous ways to give to charity.

Matching Gifts: Make a Donation and Double Your Impact
Many employers will match charitable contributions made by their employees, retirees, and employees’ spouses. These gifts can be spread out over the year or made as one-time contributions.  It is a good idea to check with your employer to make sure any necessary paperwork or documentation is completed.  KEEN Greater DC will gladly assist you to provide any information that is needed.
