Gifts of Cash:
It’s easy to make a donation anytime of year.
You can make a secure donation here or print, complete and mail the form to:
The Arc of Sedgwick County * 2919 W Second St * Wichita, KS 67203
Gifts of Stock:
One of the most financially wise ways to give is through the transfer of stocks. Donors have the capacity to allow stocks, bonds or any other securities to be transferred as gifts to The Arc. Giving the gift of stock has significant benefits for the contributor. If the stock has appreciated in value, the holder can avoid paying the capital gains tax by giving it as a gift.
If you donate stocks, bonds or mutual funds that you have had for more than one year, you may be eligible for a tax deduction and may be able to bypass the capital gain taxes. We recommend that you consult with your tax advisor first.
There are two methods for transferring the ownership of a stock, which vary depending on how it is currently being held.
Gifts from IRAs:
The IRA Charitable Rollover might be extended. Anyone with an IRA who is 70 ½ or older can give directly to The Arc from their IRA and save taxes on their minimum distribution. All you need to do is contact the IRA custodian to have the check sent directly to us.
Memorials and Honorariums allow you to make a gift in honor of someone living or deceased.
Many of The Arc’s families and friends choose to establish a memorial for their deceased family member. If you have any questions about setting up a memorial, speak with your funeral home or contact Kristen Phillips at 316-943-1191 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Honorariums include opportunities to make a gift in recognition of someone’s birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion.
When you complete the online form, simply select the type of tribute you would like to make with your donation.
We accept cars, vans, trucks, boats with a trailer, and recreational vehicles seven days a week, 24 hours a day. The Arc partners with Melwood Charity Car Donation Center, a non-profit agency, to manage and operate our vehicle donation program. Melwood, since 1963, has provided job training and employment for over 2,000 individuals with disabilities.
