No matter what your income, you can almost always lower your income taxes through donations to FairVote’s reform work, as FairVote is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our donation page is the simplest way to give via credit card or PayPal.
Checks - Checks may be made out to FairVote and mailed to 6390 Carroll Ave., Suite 240, Takoma Park, MD, 20912.
Gift of Stock - If you own stock, it can be fiscally sensible to contribute it directly rather than cash. A gift of appreciated stock both avoids a capital gains tax and provides a charitable deduction.
Gifts of Real Estate - A residence, vacation home or acreage may have appreciated in value through the years so that giving it to FairVote would avoid a capital gains tax and still provide the benefits of a (large!) charitable deduction.
Bequests - Depending on your wealth, federal and state estate taxes can take a large share of one’s estate. Even if there is no tax benefit for you, we hope you will consider a charitable bequest to FairVote in your will – and let us know of your plans.
Employer Matching - Some employers will match or even double-match charitable gifts. If your company has such a program, please enclose the form along with your gift.
