Let the Children Come Giving Options
Your help can make this $5.6M project a reality...
Gifts or Pledges to FVL
Gifts to the Let the Children Come effort can be given directly to FVL in person, online, or through the mail. Online donors have the option of making their gifts via credit card or electronic fund transfer (EFT). Either option can be used to establish a recurring donation.
Gifts or Pledges through your Federation Church
All of our 43 FVL Federation churches have been asked to participate in this expansion program. Your church may be holding special services, special offerings, or running its own Let the Children Come stewardship program. We encourage Federation members to support these efforts in their local congregations.
Planned Giving Donations
Gifts of securities, stock, bonds, real estate, CDs, and retirement assets can be donated to this effort. Donation of appreciated securities can provide tax benefits— please consult your tax advisor.
For some donors, the giving of needed goods or services is a way they can contribute to the project. Please contact the Let the Children Come leadership if you feel you could provide a meaningful in-kind gift to this project.
Many employers match their employees’ gifts to non-profits. Contact your employer for specifics on their program.
Honor or Memorial Gifts
Memorial or honor gifts are a loving way to remember a family member, loved one, or friend. Perhaps you could honor a special teacher or FVL moment in your life.
Donors wishing to increase the impact of their gift can make a Challenge Gift. Such a gift requires a matching component and can generate 2-3 times the amount of the original gift. These types of gifts can help raise project awareness and help other donors increase the project’s overall support level.
Bequests, trusts, gift annuities, and insurance gifts can provide a way to give a special gift.
