Other Ways to Give
Other Ways to Give
Workplace giving is one of the easiest ways to contribute to Housing Works. This program allows employees to support Housing Works directly through payroll deduction. Employees pledge a specific, self-determined amount that is deducted each pay period and sent to Housing Works on a regular basis. All donations through the workplace giving program are tax-deductible. Please contact your Human Resources Department to find out if your company participates in employee-designated giving.
Federal employees can direct donations to Housing Works through the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). Designate #42132.
If you participate in a United Way campaign that allows donor designations, you may be able to select Housing Works, Inc. as the beneficiary of your payroll deduction gift(s). Please contact the United Way campaign coordinator at your company to see if you can write-in Housing Works, Inc. as the beneficiary of your gift(s).
Gifts of Stock
Gifts of stocks and bonds can be one of the most advantageous ways of giving. When you contribute appreciated securities to Housing Works, you can:
- Bypass capital gains taxes (especially valuable for stock you have held more than a year),
- Claim the full value of the gift as a charitable deduction,
- Make a larger gift than if you first sold the securities and then donated the net proceeds, and
- Support the vital, comprehensive services we provide homeless and formerly homeless New Yorkers living with HIV and AIDS.
