Other Ways to Invest
There are many ways to invest in the Women’s Fund of Rhode Island:
- Monthly Gift
A monthly gift allows you to donate on the time that is most convenient to you, with the amount that is right for you. Call us to set up your Women’s Fund monthly giving.
- Transfer of Stocks
Do you have stock in a taxable account that has appreciated in value? If the answer is Yes, you may be able to donate stock in-kind to the Women’s Fund. Consult with your tax adviser to determine the value of the stocks as a charitable donation, and whether you are eligible for a deduction. Please contact Olivia Rodrigues, our fund development officer, for further information at 401.274.4564, ext. 4176.
- Marking Milestones
Dedicate your gift by paying tribute to someone who has been an inspirational force in your life! Your gift can celebrate a momentous occasion in the life of a relative, friend or colleague, or honor the memory of a loved one.
- Give at Work
Do you want your gift to have twice OR three times the impact? Consult with your employer and find out how you may increase the value of your donation through your Employer’s Matching Program. By designating your gift to the Women’s Fund, you also have the opportunity to influence how your company's giving funds are directed back into our community.
- Simone' s Circle
Preserve the work of the Fund and affect change with a bequest gift to the Women’s Fund. One simple step is to include in your will a charitable gift for the Women's Fund of Rhode Island and let us know by contacting Marcia Coné at 401.274.4564, ext. 4132.
We will work with you to ensure that your legacy and values are honored. Any size gift in your will qualifies you for membership in the Simone’s Circle. For instance, you can choose to:
- Name your fund, as a memorial, with a planned gift of $5,000.
- Specify how exactly you'd like your money spent (for example, “financial literacy for women and girls, or women’s political participation in Rhode Island”) with a $100,000 planned gift.
By tucking something away for the Women's Fund in your estate plans, you help guarantee that women and girls are the backbone of social change in Rhode Island.
- Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA)
A CGA or charitable gift annuity is a contact guaranteeing you or someone you name a certain fixed income for life. At the death of the last annuity recipient, the remaining portion of your assets will support the work of the Women’s Fund as you originally specified.
A charitable gift annuity has many benefits. It provides you with tax-favored lifetime payments, and offers immediate income tax savings (when you itemize), while enabling you to meet your philanthropic goals.
For more information about charitable gift annuities, please contact Marcia Coné at 401.274.4564, ext. 4132. Or you may consult your tax planning professional.
The Women's Fund of Rhode Island has public charity, nontaxable, 501©(3) status in the United States. We rely on the support of many generous individuals, foundations, and corporations. Contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
