Giving to Eastman Commons

What are the different ways I can make a gift?

Gifts can be made by check, money order, credit card or stock transfer. You can 1) send us checks and money orders by mail, 2) fax or call in a credit card donation or 3) call us to coordinate a stock transfer. Remember that many employers will match the contributions their employees make, doubling or even tripling the amount that Eastman Commons receives. Please check with your or your spouse’s personnel department to find out more about your company's matching gift policy.

What are the tax benefits of making a contribution?

Any gift for which you do not receive goods or services is fully tax-deductible. Giving appreciated securities that you have owned for more than a year entitles you to capital gains tax savings, and selling depreciated securities entitles you to claim capital loss. Since the tax benefits of different types of gifts can vary, we urge you to consult your financial and legal advisors for specific tax information.

Can I designate my gift?

Unrestricted gifts give Eastman Commons the greatest flexibility to direct funds to the area where they are most needed at the time of the gift. But you may designate your gift for specific purposes in an area of your choosing, like: our housing programs, resident service programs, technology innovations, green development purposes, tenant rental assistance, employment programs or capital improvements.

Making an Outright Gift is among the easiest ways to give and among the most effective in supporting Eastman Commons Community programs to make a difference in our community.
