Give At Work
5PC member charities participate in employee giving campaigns in corporate, state, and municipal workplaces throughout the country. Look for them in your company's giving list. If you don't see them, call 415-925-2674 for information on how to add them to the list.
Have an old car, truck, boat or other vehicle to donate? Donate your vehicle online or call (877) 999-8322. Please note that this is a free service provided by VDAC (Vehicle Donation to any Charity) and the service and pick-up is totally free. Any proceeds will go directly to support 5PC and its member charities.
Write A Check
There's nothing wrong with giving the old fashioned way. If you write a check to the federation the proceeds will be shared with all the member charities. Our mailing address is 1100 Larkspur Landing Circle, Suite 340, Larkspur, CA 94939.
If you own shares of a stock, mutual fund, or other type of security, you can donate all or some of those shares to Charities Under 5% Overhead. The sale of your securities qualifies as a tax-exempt donation. Contact Lisa Fierro at 415-925-2674 for more information.
Making charitable bequest in your will or trust gives you the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy as well as reduce your estate tax. You can give a specific sum of money, a percentage of your estate, or what remains of your estate after you have provided for all your other beneficiaries. You can make an unrestricted gift, which allows the charities to use your funds as they see fit, or you can restrict your gift to fund only certain types of programs you specify. For more information please contact Patrick Maguire at 415-925-2674.
