Donate to Vida

Vida directly impacts the lives of the women, men, and children we serve in the Fox Valley and surrounding communities. All of our services are free of charge, which means we are completely dependent upon the generosity of donors to open our doors every morning. 

Vida appreciates planned giving, recurring giving, and all corporate and individual gifts of time, talent, or treasure as well. This life-affirming mission, work, and ministry is truly yours too, and we are grateful for your support! There are a variety of ways to donate, give, and support our mission. Please contact our Development Office at 920-731-4354 if you have any questions or would like assistance directing your donation and desire to support our mission. Vida is a 501(c)3 organization; donations to the organization are tax deductible.

A donor-advised fund, or DAF, sole purpose is to act as a charitable investment account for supporting organizations you care about. With a donor-advised fund, the fund can be invested for tax-free growth so your charitable donations can be as effective as possible when you give. You have the power to drive meaningful change and be a catalyst for progress with your advised funds. 

Please contact our Development Office at 920-731-4354 if you have any questions or would like assistance directing your donation to support our mission.

Gifts of appreciated stock is one of the most tax-efficient ways to give. Any appreciated stock that has a current value greater than their original cost, may be donated to a public charity and a tax deduction may be taken for their full fair market value. Since the stocks are donated, capital gains taxes from selling the stocks no longer apply to you. By converting your investments into impactful change, you are actively contributing to the betterment of our community.

Maximize your impact while minimizing your tax burden – a win-win situation that allows you to make a lasting difference. Qualified charitable distribution is when a person who is 71 years or older can contribute from their IRA directly to a charity and avoid paying income taxes on the distribution.
