When you support the Pioneers in any of these meaningful ways, you ensure our legacy of giving back to our communities through volunteerism continues for generations of Pioneers to come.
This recurring gift program provides us, our friends and family, and our communities the ability to plan our future of service, knowing we can count on your regular financial donations. It also helps us eliminate unnecessary appeals and requests, ensuring that more of each donation goes directly to our programs and services. You’ll help us save on items such as paper, printing and postage we invest in mailings and increased fundraising efforts.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
||Members of the President's Circle are Pioneers who most generously support service projects in their local communities, leading contributors who receive special recognition and benefits. No matter the level of President's Circle membership, each Pioneer who makes up this exclusive group helps pave the way forward in our mission to meet the changing needs of our communities and assist those in need. Benefit levels of the President's Circle include:
Fellowship Level: members who join the President's Circle by making annual one-time donations of $100 or more. Their benefits include honors of distinction on the President's Circle Certificate and Pioneers Card.
Loyalty Level: members of the President's Circle who continue to make donations throughout the year, cumulating $250 or more. In addition to the honors of distinction, they are included in a conference call with the Executive Director.
Service Level: members of the President's Circle who continue to make donations throughout the year, cumulating $500 or more. Their benefits include all those above and also include inclusion in a book of honor and semi-annual email updates from the Executive Director.
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. Contact your personal broker for the best options for you.
Corporate Matching Gifts
Many employers sponsor programs which will 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:
1801 California St., Suite 225
Denver, Colorado 80202
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.
