You Can Support Goodwin Living in These Ways

Check Donations

Checks should be made payable to Goodwin Living Foundation. Never make a check payable to an employee, agent or volunteer for credit to the Foundation. You can send checks to our address below or stop by the Foundation office. We love to meet our donors and say “thanks” in person!

Goodwin Living Foundation
4800 Fillmore Avenue
Alexandria, VA 22311

Credit Card Donations

The Foundation accepts credit card gifts from Visa, American Express, MasterCard and Discover. You can securely donate online or by calling us at 703.824.1200.

Goodwin Living Foundation also appreciates monthly pledges. To set one up, please call us.

Memorial and Honorary Gifts

If someone you know has been cared for by Goodwin Living or the Goodwin Living Foundation, you can celebrate them or honor their legacy with a donation in their name. The Foundation gratefully accepts these gifts and sends a notice to the persons being honored or to the families of the deceased.

Gifts of Stock or Securities

The Goodwin Living Foundation also gladly accepts stocks instead of cash donations. If you’ve owned the stock for a year, you can donate it as a gift to the Foundation, deduct its full market value and not pay tax on the long-term capital gains.

The Foundation accepts securities, including mutual funds, traded on a recognized stock exchange and other readily marketable securities. If you are interested in a stock or security donation, please contact the Foundation for more information.

Qualified Charitable Distributions – Donate up to $100,000 per tax year directly from an IRA

A qualified charitable distribution (QCD) is a distribution of funds from your IRA directly to a qualified charitable organization. Because the gift goes directly to charity without passing through your hands, the dollar amount of the gift may be excluded from your taxable income up to a maximum of $100,000 annually, with some exceptions. Please contact your tax advisor for information.

Please note that due to the fact that Goodwin Living Foundation’s IRS tax-exempt status is that of a supporting organization, QCDs need to be made payable to “Goodwin Living” (Tax ID #: 54-0623670). These gifts will ultimately be allocated to support the Goodwin Living Foundation.

Gifts Through Estate Planning

The Goodwin Living Foundation offers various ways for donors to give legacy donations for the Foundation’s many programs. Learn more about our planned giving opportunities and how you can start the process today.
