More Ways to Give
Donate through a Corporate/Employer Matching Gift Program
Many companies and employers have matching-gift programs, doubling (or in some cases even tripling) donations their employees make to a favorite charity. The Umbrella, a non-profit arts center, is a 501(c)(3) organization and eligible for matching gift contributions. Download Information Sheet for Employer Donor/Volunteer Matching Programs.
If you or your employer have any questions, please contact Katie Cimet at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Recommend a grant from your Donor-Advised Fund (DAF)
A donor-advised fund (DAF) provides donors with a centralized charitable giving vehicle. Through a donor-advised fund, you can allocate a charitable gift each year and take an immediate tax deduction. Commonly used donor-advised funds include Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, Vanguard Charitable, National Philanthropic Trust, and BNY Mellon, among many others. Recommend a gift to The Umbrella or contact Katie Cimet at email@example.com with any questions.

The Umbrella gratefully welcomes gifts of securities, and provides guidelines and contacts to minimize delays and expenses. Download Information Sheet About Donating Securities. For help, please contact Katie Cimet at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Consider a Bequest
A bequest can be an easy and satisfying gift to make: It costs nothing now but can have enormous future impact. One of The Umbrella’s largest gifts to date was an unexpected bequest that served as the catalyst for our Building the Arts campaign! We welcome bequests of many types and all sizes. Your gift can take the form of:
- a specific amount
- a specific asset, such as property or securities
- a percentage of your estate
A bequest gift may recognize a loved one or an influential artist, benefit a specific activity or program, or serve as a general and important investment in the future of the arts in our community. To learn more about making a bequest, please contact Katie Cimet at email@example.com.
