Other Ways to Give

When you support the Pioneers in any of these meaningful ways, you ensure our legacy of giving back to our communities continues for generations of Pioneers to come.

President’s Circle

The President’s Circle is a very special group of Pioneers who have shown exceptional dedication to Pioneering. President’s Circle Pioneers give an annual contribution of $100 or more. These important Pioneers make a powerful difference in our communities and in the lives of the people we serve.

Pioneers Champions

Pioneers champions help fulfill the promise of service in our communities and strengthen the fellowship bond with automatic giving. They help provide the reliable, steady source of income essential to serving the needs of Pioneers communities.

Your convenient recurring monthly or quarterly donations can be made safely and automatically. Become a Pioneers Champion using your credit card  or through electronic fund transfer (EFT) from a bank account by contacting Pioneers Headquarters at info@pioneersvolunteer.org.

Special Occasion Gifts

Our Special Occasion Giving program enables you to make a financial contribution even more meaningful with commemorative and memorial gifts. Commemorative gifts are a great way to honor someone special or celebrate any occasion from an anniversary or birthday to a wedding or veteran’s holiday. Likewise, a Memorial gift is a beautiful testimony to the meaningful life of a departed loved one, friend, or colleague. Honor someone special today.

Corporate Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor programs to match your charitable contribution. If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift to:

Denver, Colorado 80202

Stocks, Securities and Mutual Funds

Supporting Pioneers with gifts of stock or mutual funds allows you to realize tax benefits while furthering the Pioneers mission. If you own appreciated securities (stocks, bonds or mutual funds held by you for more than one year), donating them to the Pioneers may allow you to reduce or avoid more capital gains taxes and receive a federal income tax charitable deduction.

You can also designate Pioneers as the beneficiary of your securities, which is especially appealing if you’re holding shares that have appreciated significantly in value but yield a low dividend. Did you know that you can give your IRA required minimum distribution to a charity? Contact your personal broker for the best options for you.

Planned Giving

Estate planning options are many and varied. Here are just a few of the estate planning options available:

  • Make a planned gift of personal property, appreciated stock or securities.
  • Designate Pioneers as a contingent beneficiary on an existing life insurance policy or donate a policy that you no longer need.
  • Establish an endowed fund or charitable trust, or add Pioneers to an existing charitable trust.
  • Include Pioneers in your will, trust, or financial and insurance plans.
  • Name Pioneers as a beneficiary of a retirement, savings or checking account to help your family avoid probate and estate taxes.

All of these options make a meaningful gift while helping you reach your financial goals at the same time. Choose your estate planning option today.
