Ways to Give

Monetary Gifts

A monetary gift (cash, check or credit card) may be made as a one-time donation, or you may elect to spread your gift over an extended period. You may also designate your donation to one or more of our service areas.

Ongoing payment gifts are always welcome and can provide a convenient and affordable way to support the Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC). Making your gift incrementally over an extended payment period may enable you to make a more substantial contribution, and allows you to tailor your specific giving plan. We can work with you to establish the best process to fit your needs.

Monetary gifts may be deductible from your adjusted gross income in the year in which they are made.  Consult your tax adviser for deduction requirements and limitations related to your specific situation.

To Honor or Remember

A gift made in honor or memory of an individual is a thoughtful and appropriate way to pay tribute. When you make a gift in honor or memory of someone, and if you so choose, the honoree or family member of the individual you memorialize will receive a personalized letter acknowledging your generosity (excluding gift amount). You will also receive a thank you letter acknowledging your gift and serving as your receipt for tax purposes.

Company Giving Plans

Your employer may have employee giving processes or payroll deduction plans. Please consider designating the Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC) as your charity of choice. 

If you notice the MCEC is not listed as an option in your company's giving structure, please let us know and we will apply for consideration.

Employer Matching Gifts Program

You may be able to maximize your gift to the Military Child Education Coalition by applying for a matching gift from your employer. Some companies will double or even triple your contribution amount! Contact your human resources department to determine if your company has a matching gift program.  Upon notification, we will process the necessary documentation your company requires.

Gifts of Stock

A gift of stock is an investment that can provide double benefits by providing much needed support for military-connected children and their families while also providing significant tax benefits for you!
Benefits to you:

  • You may be eligible for an income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer, no matter what you originally paid for them.
  • You might not pay capital gains tax on the securities you donate.
  • You can direct your gift to a specific fund or purpose.

Consider Making a Gift to the
Military Child Education Coalition from your IRA.

The charitable IRA rollover legislation allows you to transfer up to $100,000 from your individual retirement account (IRA) without claiming it as income. This option is available to you if you are age 70 1/2 or older at the time of the gift. You may transfer up to $100,000 directly from your IRA to one or more qualified charities. This opportunity applies only to IRAs and not other types of retirement plans.

As with any charitable contribution, it is best to consult with your finance or tax professional to determine any potential tax benefits.
