Give a Matched Gift

One of the easiest ways to increase your gift to Building Blocks for Kids is by giving it through your employer's matching gift program. Many companies and organizations, including foundations, nonprofits, and associations, match employees’ charitable contributions—sometimes for as much as double the amount of the initial gift.

To match your gift:

Contact your Human Resources office to find out if your organization matches employee donations. If your organization does not currently match employee donations, you might suggest they consider doing so. Obtain a matching gift form and review the program guidelines to ensure that Building Blocks for Kids is eligible to receive the matching gift. Conditions and criteria for gift matching can vary by employer. Complete the donor section of the form and submit it, along with your check or credit card authorization, to:

Building Blocks for Kids
7577 Central Parke Blvd ~ Suite 224
Mason, OH  45040
(513) 770-2900

We will verify receipt and return the form to your company for matching funds.

For more information or questions about matching gifts, please email bbkids@bb4k.org or call Jenny at (513) 770-2900.

Give Stock

Appreciated stocks and bonds are a popular way of giving to Building Blocks for Kids. This is because they are simple gifts and can offer you a greater tax benefit than you would have with a cash equivalent.

Using appreciated assets you have held for 12 months or longer entitles you to a charitable deduction for the fair-market value of the donated asset, and you can avoid paying capital gains tax you would otherwise pay upon the sale of the appreciated securities. This tax deduction may be up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income, and any amount over this limit may be carried forward for five years.

Making the transfer is simple:
