Ways to Give

Each day, New Foundations is blessed to have your support!
Because of this, we are always striving to make it easy and meaningful for you to give in the way it works for you. 
Support comes in many forms and we appreciate all of them!

Whether it it is in support of a specific project or a general need, $5 or $5000, your donation is combined with others to create positive change in the lives of vulnerable families  in our community!

Do you want to help us plan better? When you make a gift of cash, make it recurring. On the donation page, you can select a schedule to send donations automatically. This allows us to plan for the future and creates convenience for you!

You may also want to recognize a special person or memorialize a loved one by donating in in their name. We recognize the gift and make sure family is informed. You make a truly meaningful acknowledgement of a life or accomplishment.

While we are able to meet the basic needs of the teens in our homes, you can make the difficult stay more pleasant with a few extras.  For most of our kids, they are luxuries.

Think about having your group buy or create items like soft blankets, large tote bags or duffels, or art supplies. Create drives in your neighborhood for hygiene items and clothing.

You can also shop our Amazon Wish List to provide for specific items.

Holidays and milestones can be especially hard. You can recognize the spirit of the day or congratulate a teen.  Just contact us to get a Christmas List or upcoming graduation/birthday in need of a card! These personal items let our kids know they are valued by the community.

Help us inform you and the community about what we are doing and the impact your donations are making on the Upstate!

And Even More

Our partnership with FreeWill allows you to give stocks, grants from Donor Advised Funds (DAF), IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD), and Cryptocurrency. Easy to use and secure, it gives you more flexibility and can offer tremendous tax savings!

A Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) is a tax-efficient way for those 70 ½ or older to donate to New Foundations from their IRA, while also counting towards your annual Required Minimum Distribution.

Through our partner FreeWill, you just complete the form and follow the simple instructions!

By donating stock that has appreciated for more than a year, you are actually giving 20 percent more than if you sold the stock and then made a cash donation.

Some people may not donate stock because they think it will require a lot of effort and time or that New Foundations  cannot accept a stock donation. We can, and it is easy through our partnership with FreeWill!

DAFs can reduce tax burdens after a windfall situation, such as receiving an inheritance, selling a business, or experiencing strong market returns.

Gifts to New Foundations from a DAF makes the grant generally eligible for an income tax deduction of up to 60 percent of your adjusted gross income.

The FreeWill tool integrates with most major donor-advised fund sponsors, saving you time while streamlining the grant request process.

When you donate cryptocurrency, you make an outsized impact without ever selling the crypto yourself. That means neither you nor New Foundations  will be taxed on the gains for appreciated assets you donate.

Easy three steps:

  1. Select coin type and amount
  2. Provide your contact information in order to receive a tax receipt
  3. Send your donation to the unique destination wallet address provided

Passing is allowed — pass the slower cars as you catch them, putting the pedal to the metal and seeing if you have what it takes to be a NASCAR driver!
