Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs that will match charitable contributions made by employees. Request a matching gift form from your employer and send the signed form to Crow Canyon along with your gift. The impact of your gift may be doubled or possibly tripled. Some companies also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. 

Appreciated Securities

Appreciated securities owned for one year or more are excellent assets to give to the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center. When you make a gift of appreciated securities, you will receive a charitable tax deduction for the full fair market value of the gift at the time it is transferred into Crow Canyon’s account, and you may avoid capital gains taxes.
