There are multiple ways to support the Northeast Kidney Foundation.

We provide the information below on ways you can help make a lasting impact. For more information on any of these items, contact us.

Make an annual gift.

Life income planning

Did you know that there is a way to support the Northeast Kidney Foundation while providing lifetime income to you and your family? Here are some examples for you to consider:

  • Immediate Gift Annuities. These gifts will provide life income now with immediate tax deductions and high payment rates. Discuss this option with your financial advisor or if needed, we can provide a referral for you.
  • Deferred Gift Annuities. These gifts will provide a flexible start date, provide life income when you need it and provide an immediate tax deduction. Discuss this option with your financial advisor or if needed, we can provide a referral for you.
  • Legacy Gifts. You can make a larger impactful gift through a legacy gift. A legacy gift through your will or trust is one of the most common and flexible ways to leave a lasting legacy with the Northeast Kidney Foundation. Some examples of legacy gifts for you to consider:
  • Bequest. Name us as a beneficiary of your will. Those that make a bequest gift will be recognized as members of The Legacy Society.
  • Beneficiary Designation Gifts. Name us as beneficiary of a trust, life insurance policy, a bank or retirement account.
  • Gifts of stocks and bonds. You can provide gifts of stocks or bonds to the Northeast Kidney Foundation and receive tax benefits.
  • Gifts of Real Property. You can make a gift of real property and receive tax benefits.

Consult your financial advisor for information on these gifts. We can also make a referral for you if you need one.

Donate your vehicle.

The Northeast Kidney Foundation can receive gifts of used vehicles. The only requirement for the vehicle is that it has all four tires, clear title, and all parts (they don’t have to all be working — they just all have to be there). You will receive tax benefits equal to the selling price of the vehicle or $500, whichever is greater.
