This special event is celebrated every autumn and offers several opportunities to support the ReFocus mission: sponsorships, reserving tables, purchasing individual tickets, the Irish Cottage vacation raffle and donating items for the silent auction. It’s truly a gala event. Christine Kavanagh, RSM at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Christine Kavanagh at 401-272-1600.
Held at the end of each year, this is an opportunity to make an annual contribution or schedule monthly contributions for the year. Please watch your mail for details, or call Ellen Almeida for more information at 401-272-1600, Ext. 119.
Many employers will match their employees’ contributions to ReFocus. Multiply your gift by checking with your company’s personnel office to see if they offer this opportunity.
If you are age 70½ or over, you may consider a QCD, an otherwise taxable distribution from an IRA (other than an ongoing SEP or SIMPLE IRA) that is paid directly from the IRA to a qualified charity. You can exclude from gross income up to $100,000 of a QCD made for a year, and a QCD can be used to satisfy any IRA required minimum distributions (RMDs) for the year. Also, the amount of a QCD excluded from gross income is not taken into account in determining any deduction for charitable contributions. (See Notice 2007-7, Section IX, for additional information on QCDs.)
If you wish to make a gift of stock certificates you hold or stock held by a brokerage firm or financial institution, call our Director of Finance Ellen Almeida for more information at 401-272-1600, Ext. 119.
