You can donate airline miles to help children and families who live long distances from their craniofacial doctors. To transfer miles to the American Airlines for the AA Miles for Kids in Need program, please contact us for details.
Appreciated stocks in a brokerage account or in certificate form for stock that has grown in value will provide support for the WCF at the full market value and with no capital gains tax paid by the donor. Donors may be able to take a charitable deduction on their federal income tax for the market value of the securities at the time of stock transfer.
With a gift of cash, you have a full tax benefit to the maximum extent of the law. Please mail your contribution to:
P.O. Box 515838
Dallas, TX 75251-5838
Checks should be made to World Craniofacial Foundation. You may also make a secure online donation by clicking here.
When you make a gift of a charitable gift annuity to the WCF, the Foundation reinvests assets and guarantees to pay you a fixed income for life (and, if desired, for another beneficiary's lifetime). Upon the death of the last beneficiary, the principal is available to the WCF. The tax advantages may include charitable deduction, income tax savings and estate tax savings.
A charitable remainder trust can be established with cash, appreciated securities, real estate or other marketable assets and managed by a trustee. With this trust, the donor is provided with income until his death (or the death of his designated beneficiary), or for a specific term of years. When the trust expires, the principal becomes available to the WCF.
Send a gift directly to WCF via wire transfer. Please contact us for wiring instructions.
A gift to the World Craniofacial Foundation in honor or memory of a loved one or friend is a meaningful way to celebrate their life and also benefit the lives of so many others. Any gift - immediate or planned - may be made in honor or memory of someone important to you.
The Foundation sends an acknowledgement to the person or families with the donor's name and address. The amount of the gift is kept confidential. Gifts of all sizes can serve as a lasting symbol of friendship, love and respect. When making such a gift, please remember to include the name of the person to be recognized and the name (if different) and address where you would like the acknowledgement sent.
The value of many estates can incur federal, and possibly state, estate taxes as qualified retirement plans accumulate. Designating a percentage of assets from your plan to WCF may minimize the taxes due on retirement plan assets.
You can name the WCF the beneficiary (or co-beneficiary) on an existing life insurance policy. In the event of your death, WCF receives the proceeds of the policy as a bequest, which may generate federal estate tax benefits. If you also make the WCF owner of the policy and relinquish all incidents of ownership, you may be able to claim an income tax deduction for the cash surrender value.
If you would like to "dedicate" your gift to an individual child, you may do so. Once the WCF's support for the child has been completed, any funds leftover will go back into our general fund. Gifts are not "restricted" to certain individuals because restricted gifts are not tax deductible by U.S. law.
Many companies offer matching gift programs, encouraging current or retired employees or their spouses or widows to contribute to charitable organizations. Most companies will match contributions dollar for dollar to double your gift. Please contact your company's Human Resources department for more information.
