TCF has launched two separate gift matching programs for 2022, the Community Challenge for $1,000 up to $49,999 gifts, and the Lerner-Berkemeier Challenge for gifts $50,000 and above.

Donating appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds is quick, surprisingly simple and may provide you with significant tax benefits.
There are three easy steps to giving:
Send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to give us your name, address and gift information.
We will send you our broker stock transfer information. Please watch your email for a response from email@example.com
The Commons Foundation will sell the stock and send a you tax receipt using the contact information you provide. Your gift of securities to TCF is valued at an average of the low and high trading prices on the date of the gift.
You receive the potential deduction for the amount of the charitable donation, and you don’t pay capital gains tax on the sale.
