Other Ways to Give
Sponsor a Family
Sponsor a family living in an orphanage (US$3000 per year)
Sponsor a OneSky-trained couple dedicated to caring for up to 4 orphaned children whose special needs make it unlikely that they will be adopted. These permanent foster families live in single family housing units adjacent to orphanage grounds so the children can take advantage of the services there, including OneSky programs.
You will receive two reports a year about the family you are sponsoring that will make clear the impact your generosity is making in the lives of children who finally have a mom and dad to call their own. Contact us to sponsor a family.
Sponsor an Early Learning Center
Help us ensure that an entire village full of babies, toddlers, and preschoolers receives the daily love, attention, and nurturing care all children need for healthy development. Please contact us for more information.
Create a lasting legacy for vulnerable and at-risk young children and gain valuable financial and tax benefits for yourself and your family. Please contact us for more information.
Tax-Free IRA Rollover
Qualified donors can make gifts of up to $100,000 to OneSky from their IRA. Such transfers avoid tax on the distribution and count toward the donor’s required minimum distribution. Please contact us for more information.
Gifts of Stock
A gift to OneSky of appreciated stock held for more than one year can offer much-needed support to OneSky and tax benefits for you; you pay no capital gains tax and qualify for an income tax deduction for the full market value on the date of the gift.
Please contact us via email or phone before initiating a stock transfer to prevent a delay in processing and acknowledging your donation. Include the following information in your email:
- name of security
- number of shares
- broker or bank name
- date gift initiated
With matching gifts you can sometimes double or even triple your gift!
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please enter your employer’s name below.
If your company matches, you may be able to access the forms directly through the search. Follow the set procedure, and Half the Sky DBA OneSky will be happy to assist. The impact of your gift may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
