ACH Contributions

The ACH Contribution Program supports the ongoing efforts of the Foundation. Through this program, the Foundation will initiate an ACH transaction for any amount specified by an individual to post to a checking or savings account on the 1st and/or 16th of each month. The individual designates the dollar amount and frequency of the transaction. Click here for the ACH Contribution Authorization form.
The program works as follows:
  1. An individual wishing to make periodic contributions via ACH completes the ACH Contribution Authorization Form.
  2. Individuals have the option of contributing monthly or twice a month.
  3. ACH files will be transmitted with sufficient lead time to settle the transaction on the 1st and/or 16th, or the next business day if these dates fall on a weekend or holiday.
  4. The individual has the right to terminate this deduction at any time by providing written notification or email ( to the Foundation.
  5. At the end of the year, individuals will receive a summary of contributions for the year that meets IRS requirements for tax purposes. The Foundation has been designated as a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization by the IRS, so contributions are tax deductible for most individuals. Consult you tax advisor if there are any questions.
