Gifts of Stock: Sports World accepts gifts of appreciated stocks and bonds. Your bank or broker may contact us for transfer instructions.
Matching Gifts: Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees, doubling or sometimes tripling the impact of your support. If your company is eligible, please request a matching gift form from your employer and send it completed and signed with your gift. Sports World will do the rest. Please keep in mind that some companies also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
In-Kind: We gladly accept most in-kind donations and services.
Bequests and Planned Giving: Planned giving can help you make a difference in our community in a way you may have never considered. Planned giving offers multiple advantages: tax-benefits, the ability to receive a lifetime income, and the chance to give while still providing for your loved ones. Before you make any kind of planned gift, Sports World encourages you to speak with your own financial advisor.
Bequests are the simplest kind of planned gift! Bequests are a transfer of funds through wills and trusts. Donors who are considering leaving a bequest to Sports World may use the following language:
“I give, devise and bequeath to Sports World, a not-for-profit organization located in Indianapolis, ____(dollars or percentage of my estate) to be used for the benefit of the organization (at the organization’s discretion or as specified in a gift agreement on file at the organization).”
So we may appropriately recognize your generous gifts, Sports World requests that you inform us of your planned gift.
Sports World can work with your financial advisor to find the best gift option for you. There are many opportunities to contribute. Contact Devon McDonald at 317.862.6546, to discuss in-kind donations, planned giving opportunities, or other ways to support Sports World.
