In what ways can donations be made to Ignite?

Annual gifts
Ignite relies on strong annual support from our many friends to help us with day-to-day operating costs. Unrestricted gifts provide us with the flexibility to enhance existing programs, develop new services, and continue to succeed as a leader in therapeutic recreation.

Matching gifts
Your gift can be doubled, or even tripled, if you or your spouse work for a company with a matching gift program. All you need to do is obtain a matching gift form from your human resources department, fill it out, and mail it to Ignite, PO Box 19016, Boulder, Colorado 80308-2016.

In-Kind Donations
Products or services, which have the effect of reducing our operating costs, are greatly appreciated.

Charitable bequests
A charitable bequest can be tailored to almost any set of circumstances, and it provides an unlimited deduction for estate tax purposes. Bequests also provide a flexible planning tool for meeting the needs of loved ones and making choices that fulfill personal wishes. Today, bequests can take many forms. In a last will and testament, you may stipulate a specific cash donation, or state a percentage of your gross assets.

Life insurance
A gift of a life insurance policy allows you to make a major gift for a modest cost. Many donors like to use insurance gifts to receive a current tax deduction while disposing of an old policy that is no longer needed.

Other assets
Stock, closely-held stock, real estate (including land), checking or savings accounts, property, art, or any combination of these.
