Other Ways to Give

Matching Gifts

You may be able to double your gift to the Foundation. Check with your employer for a matching gifts program.

Memorials

Make a donation in memory of a loved one and we will send the indicated family a memorial card.

Estate Planning

You can make a gift to the Foundation by providing a dollar amount from your estate, specifying property, or bequeathing a percentage of your estate. Such a designation can reduce your taxes. (Consult your Financial Advisor).

United Way

You may designate the Rockford Education Foundation as the recipient of your United Way donation.

Can I specify where the money goes?
We don’t have separate “accounts” set up for different schools. However, you can make a donation in honor of your favorite teacher or in memory of a loved one. We will notify the appropriate party.

How is my money used?
Most of your money goes directly to grants. A portion is used for operating expenses. Another portion is used to help build our endowment fund. This “savings account” draws interest and ensures that grants will continue to be funded for years to come.
