Gifts don’t have to be monetary to make a great impact. You can make a difference by donating in-kind items, or even by shopping! We are firm believers in each and every one of us giving what we can in our own way – every effort can make a difference to a child or family participating in CentroNía’s programs.
Know some people who would be interested in making even a few small gifts to support local children and families? Set up a birthday fundraiser on Facebook, dedicate your 5K to raising money for us, or reach out to us with other ideas! You can also check out our calendar to find an upcoming fundraising event to attend. Contact our Director of Development & Communications, Patrick Salami, at (202) 332-4200, ext. 1012 with any questions or other ideas.
Does your employer have a charitable giving program? CentroNía’s EIN is 25-1689720 - ask your employer to automatically donate a pre-tax amount of your choosing each pay period, month, or year.
If you are a federal employee, a District of Columbia or state of Maryland employee, or your employer participates in the United Way’s employee giving program, you can select CentroNía as your charity of choice in your Combined Federal Campaign (#38660), United Way Campaign (#8123) or other workplace giving campaign.
Donating stocks, bonds, or mutual funds is a great way to support CentroNía’s programs. CentroNía solicits and accepts gifts of stock, bonds and mutual funds. Appreciated securities that you have owned for more than one year could qualify for a charitable income-tax deduction for the full fair market value. A direct transfer donation from your IRA could have additional benefits to you. Make sure to discuss these options with your tax advisor.
For stock donations to CentroNía please contact us or call (202) 332-4200 to speak with Myrna Peralta, President & CEO.
Making a bequest is simple, and by remembering us in this special way, you can help to continue bridging the gaps in our community that create inequities for CentroNía’s children and families.
