More Ways to Give

Matching Gifts

Many employers offer a Matching Gifts Program. This is a tremendous benefit that can double or even triple your gift to Crowden! Please check with your Human Resources Department for details.

Gifts of Securities

Gifts of stock or other appreciated property offer two-fold tax savings: Donors pay no capital gains on increased value of the appreciated property, and they receive an income tax deduction for the full market value at the time of the gift. Transferring securities is easy. To receive a transfer form and to ensure proper tax credit, timely acknowledgement, and accurate processing of your stock donation, please contact Moana Newman at or 510.559.6910 ext 121.

Memorial and Honorary Tribute Gifts

You can commemorate a loved one with a gift to Crowden. Gifts may honor a person during his/her lifetime, commemorate a significant event, or provide a legacy in keeping with your loved one’s interests and ideals. Families of those honored will receive notification of the donor's gift. To set up a memorial fund or tribute gift, or if you are interested in giving to an existing memorial fund, please contact Moana Newman at or 510.559.6910 ext 121.
