Matching Gifts

Many companies offer a matching gift program to encourage charitable giving among their employees, including spouses and retirees. Contact your HR department to see if your company has a matching program that can increase the impact of your donation.

Tribute and Legacy Gifts

You have the option to make your gift in honor or memory of someone special in your life.

You can support WayForward’s work long-term by designating your gift to the WayForward Resources Endowment Fund. The endowment will provide an ongoing stream of income to support our general operations and programs into the future.

A bequest or gift in your will or through your life insurance policy also ensures that WayForward can continue to be a resource for children, families and individuals in our community for years to come.

Donor Advised Funds

A donor advised fund (DAF) is a powerful way to build or continue a tradition of family philanthropy by establishing a charitable investment account, receiving an immediate tax deduction and recommending grants to your charities of choice over time. The investment growth is tax free. Please consult your financial advisor to learn more about setting up a DAF to benefit WayForward.


If you are 70½ or older, you are eligible to make charitable gifts directly from your individual retirement account (IRA). These gifts satisfy your required minimum distribution for the year and reduce your taxable income, all while allowing you to give pretax dollars to charity. Please consult with your personal financial advisor to learn more about supporting WayForward Resources through your IRA.


WayForward Resources accepts donations of shares of stock and mutual funds. Contact us at 608-826-3402 for more information.
