Other Ways to Give

Donor Advised Fund
A donor advised fund provides a convenient method of charitable giving that makes it easy for donors to dedicate funds to support their favorite nonprofit organization.  It allows individuals, families, and businesses to make tax-deductible charitable donations of cash, publicly-traded stock, and in some cases, certain illiquid assets, to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program.

Stock Transfers
Giving long-term owned, appreciated securities may provide benefits to you and to FIRST! If you would like to make a gift of stock to FIRST, we would be happy to provide stock transfer instructions to you.  It is a simple, straightforward process.

To support FIRST with a gift of stock, you can call or write to your broker, and ask your broker to initiate a "broker to broker" transfer. You would instruct your broker to donate the stock directly to FIRST. We will provide you with the name of our brokerage firm, the brokerage firm’s DTC number, the account name and number, the telephone number and name of the broker contact at the firm.

Your broker can then transfer the securities directly to FIRST’s account. It is important that the securities be transferred to the FIRST account prior to being sold in order to avoid capital gains taxation.

Combined Federal Campaign
FIRST participates in the world's largest and most successful workplace charity campaign — the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). Through the CFC, as well as state and local campaigns, government workers support the work of FIRST through payroll deductions. Pledges made during the annual campaign season (October 2 to January 12) will help us fund vitally-important youth robotics programs. If you are a federal government or military employee, and would like to give to FIRST through the CFC, please enter CFC code # 73876 on your pledge card during the upcoming campaign.

AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop (at no cost to you). Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. AmazonSmile is the same as Amazon.com. It offers the same products, same prices, same service.
