More Ways to Give:

Ask your employer for a matching gift:
Many businesses will match charitable donations made by their employees. Ask your Human Resources Department if your employer has a matching gift program. You may have to complete a matching gift form for your employer and send it, completed and signed, with your gift. This is a great way to double your impact!

Become a corporate sponsor:
We are developing a business partnership program to enable for-profit organizations to support specific months of produce growing and donation. Contact Nurya Parish at 616-747-0737 or nurya@plainsongfarm.com.

Make a gift of securities:
When you make a charitable gift of securities held long-term, the donation you make and the deduction you get are greater than they would be if you were to sell the shares and donate the cash proceeds instead. The Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis handles stock donations on our behalf. Instructions are here.

Make a gift from your IRA*:
If you are 72 or older, you can donate up to $100,000 to Plainsong Farm from your IRA or 401K without it being counted as taxable income. This gift can be used as your required minimum distribution (RMD). If you wish to make a gift from your IRA simply download and complete this letter and submit it to your IRA administrator.

Make a gift of an insurance policy:
If you have a fully paid insurance policy you no longer need, you can gift the policy to Plainsong Farm and take a tax deduction for the value of the policy at the time of the gift.

Leave a gift in your will:
Making a gift in your will may qualify your estate for an estate tax charitable deduction. You can make a gift by including the following language in your will:
“I give (insert dollar amount) or (insert a specific asset, such as securities, real estate or other property) or (insert percent of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate) to Plainsong Farm in Rockford, Michigan to be used for the general purposes of the nonprofit organization.”

If you wish to document your bequest intention, please download this letter and mail to: Nurya Parish, Executive Director, Plainsong Farm 6677 Twelve Mile Road NE, Rockford MI 49341. We’ll be honored to include you in our Legacy Society.
