Matching Gift Programs and Employee Contribution Programs
Many employers offer an easy and FREE way to make donations from their individual employees go even further. A Matching Gift Program enables companies to match the value of each employee’s charitable donations, dollar for dollar or sometimes two dollars on every dollar. If you work for an employer that participates in a matching gifts program, you may be able to double your donation. To find out if your employer offers a program like this, talk to your Human Resources Department today!
Even if you don’t have a Matching Gift Program at your company, most companies will have an Employee Contribution Program. To set up donations through your employer, talk to your human resources director or payroll administrator. We are currently setup with the following donation programs:

Consider Leaving a Legacy to Those Who Follow You
Charitable organizations, like H.E.L.P., need financial assistance from the community and individuals like you to continue their work. Your contribution to H.E.L.P. can continue beyond your lifetime by leaving a legacy of a charitable bequest from your estate.
A charitable bequest is simply a distribution from your estate to a charitable organization(s) through your last will and testament or your trust. You decide what bequest you wish to leave either through a specific designated amount or a percentage of your total estate value. You can also leave a specified item of value in your estate such as a piece of art, an automobile or real estate. Whatever your choice, you must use very specific language to indicate the precise asset and the specific direction of that asset to ensure your wishes are properly carried out. In this way, your good works and the help you provide can continue well beyond your lifetime.
In any charitable bequest, always be very accurate in naming the organization you want to receive the bequest. An example of the appropriate language in your will or trust for a bequest to H.E.L.P. would be:
“I give, devise, and bequeath to Healthcare & Elder Law Program Corporation (also known as H.E.L.P.), a California nonprofit public benefit corporation, the sum of $____________(or a percentage of the estate value or a description of the specific asset) for the benefit of Healthcare & Elder Law Program Corporation and its general purposes.”
We always recommend that you carefully review the terms of your bequest, as well as your will and trust, with an experienced and knowledgeable professional trained in handling wills, trusts and estates.
