Monthly Giving

Please consider setting up recurring donations on a monthly or quarterly basis. It’s easy to do and automates your monthly donation. Just as importantly, monthly donors make it easier for Children Rising to plan financially throughout the year. In order to set up a recurring donation, please go to https://children-rising.org/donate checkout and select “Ongoing” on the top of the form.

Stock Donation

If you’re looking for a tax-smart way to leave your legacy, consider a gift of stock. When you give appreciated stock that you’ve owned for more than one year, you can avoid capital gains tax and receive a charitable income tax deduction when you itemize. There are two simple ways you can donate stock. You can donate stock directly to Children Rising or through a donor-advised fund (DAF). To make a gift of stock directly to Children Rising, click here. We partner with StockDonator.com to easily transfer stock from your account to ours. To make a gift of stock through your DAF, please contact your plan administrator, who will make the process fast and easy for you.

Legacy Giving

Legacy giving is your way to leave a planned future gift by designating part of your individual estate to Children Rising. You can leave a legacy with a planned gift through your will, trust, IRA, or life insurance. These planned gifts allow you to enjoy the benefits of smart financial planning while also creating a lasting impact on children and families in Oakland for years to come.
