Your gift will Make An Impact on neighbors and campers.

All gifts made to Reach Mission Trips are a 501(c)(3) non-profit tax-deductible organization.  All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law. Reach Mission Trips does not share or sell donor/support information with any other institutions.




Many Ways To Give:

Donation Matching…

Many companies offer matching gift programs that will double, and in some cases triple, the value of their employee’s gifts. Some companies will even match gifts and/or volunteer hours made by retirees, spouses and/or children. Please contact your company’s human resources department or search at http://matchfinderonline.blackbaud.com to determine if your company has a matching gift program and whether your gift to Reach Mission Trips is eligible for a match.

Stock Donations…

Donations of appreciated securities, usually common stock, provide a tax-efficient way of making your gift.

Gifts of appreciated securities held for more than one year entitle you to a charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of gift. Additionally, you avoid the capital gains tax that would otherwise be due on the appreciation if the security were sold.
Your broker can transfer securities in a brokerage account directly to Reach Mission Trips at Charles Schwab Bank (DTC #0164), account #8196-5448. You may transfer from any brokerage company, but if you use Charles Schwab, download their Charitable Gift Donation Form.

Please notify us at mjones@reachwc.org before you initiate a stock transfer so we can identify your gift when it is received and acknowledge it in a timely manner.

Note: Depreciated securities (securities worth less than you paid for them) should not be given directly to Reach Mission Trips. Instead, you should sell the securities to generate a tax-deductible capital loss (which can offset your capital gains or up to $3,000 of ordinary income) and then give the sale proceeds to Reach Mission Trips.

For more information on gifts of appreciated securities, contact our Founder, Mike Jones, at (888) 732-2492, or e-mail him at mjones@reachwc.org.

Estate Giving / Wills / Life Insurance Plans…

Appreciated and depreciated property and other alternatives like retirement plan assets, wills, and/or life insurance plans are all planned giving options through Reach Mission Trips. Planning ahead and planning carefully affords you the time to decide which charitable commitment will suit your goals and benefit you the most. Investing your time in planning may increase the amount of your gift and create more tax savings for you. Checking with your financial advisor can help you maximize your giving and saving as well.

If you are interested in including Reach Mission Trips in your will or estate plans, please contact our Founder, Mike Jones, at (888) 732-2492, or e-mail him at mjones@reachwc.org.

Reach Mission Trips’ Donor Bill of Rights…

Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the not-for-profit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:

  1. To be informed of the organization’s mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.
  2. To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization’s governing Board of Directors, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities.
  3. To have access to the organization’s most recent financial statements.
  4. To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.
  5. To receive appropriate acknowledgment and recognition.
  6. To be assured that information about their donations is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.
  7. To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature.
  8. To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired solicitors.
  9. To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share.
  10. To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.

The text of this statement in its entirety was developed by the American Association of Fund-Raising Counsel (AAFRC), Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), and the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), and adopted in November 1993.
