Ways to Give

There are a number of important ways you can support OΔK. Some strategies below are effective ways of investing in Omicron Delta Kappa. 

Matching Gifts

Many companies offer a matching gift program. For every dollar you donate to the OΔK Foundation, your employer may be willing to do the same. Ask your employer about the paperwork you need to complete to qualify for a matching gift.

Monthly Contributions

With OΔK’s Gift Express, it’s easier than ever to contribute to the Omicron Delta Kappa Foundation as a monthly sustainer! You simply determine how much each month. Specify the amount to be withdrawn and the date on the Gift Express form and donations will be debited from your account twelve times a year. Be sure to enclose a voided check. A minimum gift of $20.00 per month is requested.

Want to be recognized in the prestigious Leadership Circle? While an annual gift of $1,000 might be out of reach with a single gift, if divided into 12 monthly gifts of $83.33, you can see your name listed on the Leadership Council list in the annual honor roll of donors.

Stocks and Bonds

There can be tax benefits for transferring highly appreciated stock to a nonprofit organization. Once transmitted, the stock is sold immediately to use the proceeds to fund programs and initiatives per the directions of the donor. Contact Katy Datz, Associate Executive Director for External Relations, at (540) 458-5344 or katy@odk.org for instructions, and be sure to consult your accountant or tax advisor for additional information.

Pledges

A pledge is simply a promise. Generally, donors will commit to giving a particular dollar amount over some duration of time. Pledges can help donors manage their giving, and can help the OΔK plan for the future.

In-Kind Gifts

The right in-kind gift can go a long way toward helping support our leadership programs, and it is a particularly great way for local businesses to support OΔK – particularly in communities where our drive-in workshops and biennial conventions are located. In-kind gifts may be eligible for a tax donation receipt.
