For 30 years, Guardian Ad Litem Foundation, 20th Judicial Circuit Inc., has raised money in support of our region’s most vulnerable children, those who have been abused, neglected and abandoned. Your support helps us to meet this mission!
MAKE A GIFT
The simplest and most popular of all charitable donations is a gift of cash. You may mail your check to Guardian ad Litem Foundation-20th Judicial Circuit; 1700 Monroe Street; Fort Myers, FL 33901 or click the “Donate Now” button below to make your gift securely online.
You can also make a special donation this way. A Memorial or Tribute gift is a special way to honor someone in your life, to celebrate a special occasion or to remember a loved one who is no longer with you. A letter is sent to the honoree or relative to inform them of this special gift. Please add the name of the person you are honoring in the notes section under your gift amount in PayPal (after you enter your gift amount a field saying “Write a note” will populate allowing you to enter this information).
If you prefer to make your gift by phone, please call (239) 533-1435. If you wish to designate your gift for a specific purpose, please make a notation so we can be sure we carry out your wishes.
WILLS & PLANNED GIVING
Many donors find it convenient to make gifts through a bequest which is simply a gift made through a will.
By naming Guardian Ad Litem Foundation of Southwest Florida as beneficiary and/or assigning ownership of the policy to Guardian Ad Litem Foundation, you can receive a valuable income tax deduction. Policies that are no longer needed – one purchased to provide protection for dependent children who are now grown or as part of a business partnership – can provide an excellent giving opportunity.
REAL ESTATE GIFTS
Donate primary residences, vacation homes, undeveloped land or commercial property. If the property has been owned for more than one year, you may be entitled to a charitable deduction equal to the full fair market value of the property.
STOCKS AND PUBLICLY TRADED SECURITIES
A gift of stocks, bonds, and mutual funds entitle the donor to a tax deduction for the market value of the donated stock. Donating stocks that have increased in value can provide greater tax advantages than cash. Call 239-533-1451 for more information.
