Support the Foundation


The Lamplighter Foundation, Inc. is a qualified I.R.C. Section 501(c)(3) organization. Gifts are tax deductible to the extent provided by law.

There are several ways you can support the Foundation

  • Cash Contributions
  • Gifts of Stock: A most advantageous option if stocks have a low cost basis.
  • Establish a Charitable Remainder Trust: By transferring appreciated securities or other property to a Charitable Remainder Trust.  Please consult your tax advisor to ascertain the tax benefits of this donation.  If a donor already has a Charitable Remainder Trust, consider designating the Foundation as a beneficiary.
  • Designate the Foundation as a beneficiary of your estate or life insurance policy: Cash bequest, residuary legatee or otherwise.
  • If the employer has a matching gift program: this can double a donor's contribution.
