How Can I Make a Contribution?
Support the Delaware Adolescent Program, Inc. (DAPI) in the way that best suits you.
- Donate by Check : Contributions are tax deductible. Make your check payable to the Delaware Adolescent Program, Inc. or DAPI and mail your check to:
The Delaware Adolescent Program, Inc.
2900 Van Buren Street
Wilmington, DE 19802
It is, of course, the easiest transaction for both you and us.
You are limited only by your cash flow and your inclination to
draw from your cash reserves.
- Appreciated securities
Get the same tax deduction as if you had given cash, but use
stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares that cost you less than
they are currently worth. Your deduction is based on market
value, but you incur no capital gains liability on the transfer
to us: It's one of the best tax incentives left, and we can work
with your broker to make a gift of securities simple.
- Real estate
Gifts of land, vacation homes or income-producing properties can
bring great benefits to us. We have to review each gift proposal
carefully and sometimes it's not practical for us to accept. You
can give real estate outright, transfer it in a part sale/part
gift arrangement, use it to fund a life-income gift, or give
your residence and reserve the right to continue to live there.
- A retirement account
The balance remaining in your retirement account after your
death is often subject to double taxation if it passes to your
heirs, by being taxed both as income and as an estate asset.
Result? Over 75% of the account value may go to taxes. It's a
better plan to designate the remainder of your account to us,
and then use other assets for gifts to your family. New
regulations simplify the procedure of naming a charity as
beneficiary, and we are ready to help you plan this gift.
- Appreciated assets
You may be holding a book collection or artwork that you no
longer wish to maintain. Instead, these assets could bring real
benefit to us. There are particular IRS requirements to meet
before you can deduct a gift of appreciated assets. And, we will
review each gift proposal carefully to make sure that we can put
the asset to good use.
- Business interests
A partnership, an interest in a business, shares of closely held
stock, or a limited partnership share may all hold value for us.
We'll review the proposed gift, and if we agree will work with
you and your advisors to make the transfer simple.
- Matching Gifts : Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Please contact your personnel department for more information.
