HOW TO GIVE Donate Your Way...

By Phone or Mail

You can call our dedicated donation line at 585.340.3381. Our friendly team is available to assist you in making your gift over the phone.

If sending a check or money order by mail, simply make your donation payable to PathStone Foundation and mail it or drop it off to 400 East Ave, Rochester, NY 14606.

Stock Gifts and Crypto

We’ve partnered with The Giving Block to make it easy to donate stocks or crypto. For stocks, we’ve automated away the complexity and made donating stock as seamless as giving crypto or cash. When you donate stocks, you not only get the same write-off as a cash gift, but you owe no taxes on the stocks you donate. That’s a win-win for you and your favorite charities.

IRA Charitable Distributions

Giving through an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) Charitable Distribution, also known as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD), is a tax-efficient way to support charitable organizations while fulfilling your required minimum distribution (RMD) obligations.

To make an IRA Charitable Distribution, determine your required minimum distribution (RMD) for the tax year. You can usually find this amount on your most recent IRA statement or by consulting your IRA custodian or financial advisor. Calculate your IRA charitable distribution amount and get in touch with the financial institution that manages your IRA.

Legacy Gifts

At PathStone, we believe in the power of lasting impact. A legacy gift through your will or trust is a profound way to ensure that your values and passion continue to make a difference long after you’re gone. By leaving a legacy, you become a part of a brighter future, shaping the world according to your vision.

Ways to Leave a Legacy Gift:
1. Bequests in Your Will
2. Establish a Charitable Remainder Trust
3. Designate a Charity as a Beneficiary of Your IRA or Retirement Plan
4. Set Up a Charitable Lead Trust
