If you are interested in making a gift of stock, please call Terrel Hutton at (415) 821-8539, and we’ll take it from there.
Yes, there are still a few companies and institutions out there that match charitable donations – doubling or even tripling the value of your gift. Check with your company’s personnel office to see if your donation to CIR can have even more impact. If so, send us an email or call Allegra Bandy, CIR’s Operations Manager, at 510-809-3161 so we can follow up.
Making a planned gift to the Center for Investigative Reporting offers you a simple way to combine philanthropy with financial planning. In fact, a planned gift may help you give more than you thought possible, while still providing you or someone you designate with favorable financial and/or tax benefits. There are many easy giving options from which you can choose – from naming CIR as a beneficiary in your will, to a life-income arrangement. We have specialists who, with no obligation, can help you explore an arrangement that would work for you. Please call Terrel Hutton at 510-809-3170 to learn more.
