Other Ways to Give
Plan a house party and help raise critical funds for the Colorado Springs Pride organization - Party with cosPRIDE!
House parties are great opportunities to meet fun and interesting people who share an interest in supporting the LGBT community. Because they often introduce Colorado Springs Pride to potential new supporters, they also play an important role in helping us meet the growing demand for our services.
Organize a house party of people in your area, professionals in your field or just your friends and become part of our inner circle of philanthropic leaders. We'll offer you all the tools, resources and information you'll need to be a host or co-host.
While attendance at house parties is typically free, guests are given the opportunity to make a donation and are encouraged to become a sustaining donor by making a contribution of $600 or more.
Transfer stock to cosPRIDE and enjoy tax benefits.
Donating appreciated securities, such as stocks or mutual funds, is a tax-wise approach to supporting the work of the Colorado Springs Pride organization. The benefits available to you when making a contribution of stock or mutual funds may include:
• avoiding federal and state tax on the capital gain,
• receiving an income tax deduction (federal and most states) for the full market value of your gift if you itemize deductions on your tax return and have held the assets one year or longer, and
• making a larger gift at a lower original cost to you.
Before you make a gift of appreciated securities, however, you should consult your financial planner or tax advisor to determine how the potential tax advantages described here apply to your specific situation.
Join the Circle of Life: Include the Colorado Springs Pride organization in your will or trust
Our community has had much positive news lately about LGBT relationship rights!
Several states have taken major steps to assure that same-sex couples receive equal treatment. Eight states now recognize same-sex marriage. But Federal tax and inheritance laws have not changed.
Fortunately, with careful planning, you can protect your partner and loved one and be assured of how your estate will be distributed. By leaving a gift to cosPRIDE, you ensure that the wealth you have created will continue to make a difference in the quality of life for LGBT people for years to come.
A Planned Donor means you become part of a legacy of strength and inspiration for future generations.
Why brand with us?
At Colorado Springs Pride we believe that sponsorship branding should reach beyond annual fundraisers and instead provide ongoing and constant opportunities that directly engage your target audience. We recognize traditional business objectives to increase profits and look to develop opportunities that result in positive returns on investment for your company.
Corporate sponsorship is fundamental to the success of our fundraising events and programs. cosPRIDE is able to fulfill its mission due in part to our corporate sponsors. We encourage our members to patronize these businesses and thank them for their support of the Colorado Springs LGBT community.
One of the easiest ways to donate is through employee designated giving in the workplace. These programs are hosted by the employer such as United Way. Your employer deducts an amount (that you specify) from each paycheck and sends it to us. All donations through workplace giving are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowable by law. Write us in as Colorado Springs Pride or PPGLCC. Your donation will go to help your community all year long.
