Horizons accepts most major credit cards for donations, including for deposits to donor-advised funds. Credit cards can also be used to set up convenient monthly or quarterly contributions, which many donors use to spread their giving over the course of the year. In some cases, donors also enjoy rewards, points, or airline miles earned when using their credit cards to make charitable donations.

Securities and stocks

Donating appreciated stocks and securities is often a smart tax-advantaged way to make a real difference through your giving. Transfers can be made to Horizons’ stock account at Vanguard. 

Horizons Foundation staff can also work with you and your advisors to help you leverage your assets and meet your philanthropic and personal goals by considering gifts of:

  • Retirement plan assets
  • Personal property
  • Real estate
  • Life insurance policies
