Remember Lafayette in your estate planning! Bequests to non-profits are exempt from federal income tax. It’s a wonderful way to leave a legacy in honor of a special individual that has affiliations with Lafayette.
Corporate matching, sometimes called “Gift Matching”, is when companies will match any contributions that their employees make to non-profit organizations such as Lafayette. If you aren’t sure if your company offers matching, please be proactive and inquire about it to your Human Resources Department! It’s an excellent way to stretch your donations by 100% to up to 300% in some cases, with little effort on your part.
