- Get Involved
FairVote's reform successes are made possible through the support of loyal donors, many of whom have given since our start in 1992. Please take a look at our 2017 year-end letter to supporters and highlights. See our 25th Anniversary annual report.
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, which means you can almost always lower your income taxes through donations to FairVote’s reform work. Our donation page is the simplest way to give via credit card or PayPal, but there are an array of other giving options presented below. If you have any questions about FairVote and donations, please contact Rob Richie at rr [at] fairvote [dot] org.
Other ways to give
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.
CFC and Online Giving Platforms - We accept gifts through Amazon Smile, the Network for Good, and the Combined Federal Campaign (#10132):
