Help Us Inspire Positive Change

For over 65 years, JVC Northwest has been serving in solidarity with those living on the margins of society in the Northwest. Because of the support of former volunteers, parents, and friends of JVC Northwest, our Jesuit Volunteers and JV EnCorps members have the opportunity to create impactful relationships with those with whom they serve to help overcome the everyday challenges they face and are in turn gifted with their own personal transformation. With your support, we can continue connecting our volunteers to a year of service that makes a world of difference – both now and well into the future.

Triple Your Impact

When you donate to JVC Northwest, your gift has triple the impact: individuals in need across the Northwest receive increased services, nonprofit partners grow their capacity for doing good, and Jesuit Volunteers and JV EnCorps members develop a life-long commitment to justice.

Great Ways to Support JVC Northwest

There are many ways to support Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest. Please consider a gift to JVC Northwest in one of the following ways:

By including a bequest to JVC Northwest in your will or living trust, you can create a legacy of values-centered service, creating a socially just future, and ensuring future volunteers have the opportunity for meaningful service opportunities that transform lives.

Securities and mutual funds that have increased in value and been held for more than one year are one of the most popular assets to use when making a gift to JVC Northwest. Making a gift of securities or mutual funds to us offers you the chance to support our work while realizing important benefits for yourself.

When you donate appreciated securities or mutual funds you have held more than one year to us in support of our mission, you can reduce or even eliminate federal capital gains taxes on the transfer. You may also be entitled to a federal income tax charitable deduction based on the fair market value of the securities at the time of the transfer.

Securities are most often used to support our work in the form of:

An outright gift. When you donate securities to JVC Northwest, you receive the same income tax savings that you would if you wrote us a check, but with the added benefit of eliminating capital gains taxes on the transfer, which can be as high as 20 percent.

Making a gift of securities to support our mission is as easy as instructing your broker to transfer the shares or, if you have the physical securities, hand-delivering or mailing the certificates along with a stock power to us in separate envelopes. (Using separate envelopes safeguards your gift—the certificates will not be negotiable without the stock power.)

If you’d like to give in this way, please contact David Holcomb, our Director of Finance and Operations, at 503.335.8202 or by email. If you are donating stock held in certificate form, please contact David for additional procedures.

Donor-advised funds (DAFs) can be a tax-advantageous way to give. If you have a donor-advised fund with any provider, please consider making a distribution to JVC Northwest.

See Your Generosity in Action

If you are 70½ years old or older, you can take advantage of a simple way to benefit JVC Northwest and receive tax benefits in return. You can give any amount up to $100,000 per year from your IRA directly to a qualified charity such as ours without having to pay income taxes on the money. This popular gift option is commonly called the IRA charitable rollover, but you may also see it referred to as a qualified charitable distribution or QCD for short.

Why Consider This Gift?

  • Your gift will be put to use today, allowing you to see the difference your donation is making.
  • You pay no income taxes on the gift. The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your deductions.
  • Since the gift does not count as income, it may reduce your annual income level. This may help lower your Medicare premiums and decrease the amount of Social Security that is subject to tax.

Next Steps

Adding a charity as a beneficiary is usually as simple as completing a form provided by the account custodian. You may also seek the advice of your financial or legal advisor.

Make an In-Kind Gift:
JVC Northwest can reuse your old, still-functional items that are cluttering your house, yard, and garage. We also accept new items. You receive a tax deduction and we keep things out of the landfill that still have some life left in them. Each August, we have new communities of Jesuit Volunteers moving into their houses in which we sometimes need to replace worn out or broken appliances, dishes, linens, towels, furniture and so on. If you do have an item that you would like to donate to your local JV community, please contact the JVC Northwest office at 503.335.8202 or info@jvcnorthwest.org. Please note that all donations need to be delivered to the JV community because there is usually not a method for transporting items otherwise.
