All donors receive a listing in our publicized acknowledgments and a thank you letter that can be used to claim a donation on your tax return.
Create a Memorial/ Honor A Friend
An especially meaningful way to remember or honor a friend or loved one is to give a donation in their name. Memorial donations are a lasting tribute and another way to help Orenda acquire and maintain protected open space wildlife sanctuaries. Several special memorial donations have helped Orenda acquire and provide stewardship to several sanctuaries in Mashpee. Orenda acknowledges each donation received in honor or memory of someone with a personal letter of thanks. For more information about donations in honor or memory of a friend or loved one, please call Orenda at (508) 362-4798 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Give a Gift of Appreciated Securities
Consider a gift of appreciated securities to Orenda. If you have held stocks or bonds for more than one year and they have increased in value, you are likely eligible for a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value. A gift of this type allows you to avoid the capital gains tax that would be due if you sold the securities. Orenda’s Smith’s Dock Sanctuary in West Barnstable was made possible through a donation of appreciated securities, as was Orenda’s capacity to protect critical habitat on the Child’s River in Waquoit. Please call Orenda at (508) 362-4798 or email us at email@example.com to learn more about making a gift of appreciated securities.
