The BEF relies entirely on donations to fund its operations. In order to fund as many grants as possible BEF needs to raise money all year round. Please consider how you can make a difference by making a contribution.
Donate By Mail
You can mail a check or credit card donation. Simply download the donation form below, and return to:
Bedford Education FoundationPO Box 10121 Bedford, NH 03110
The BEF is a registered 501(c)(3) corporation and as such your donation may be tax deductible. Our federal tax ID number is 02-0486850
Many companies offer an employee matching program for charitable contributions each year. This is a tremendous opportunity to magnify the power of your gift and take advantage of "free money". Contact your company HR representative to find out details on your company's program and help BEF reach its goals.
Donations of Stock
There are some significant potential tax advantages for making a gift of stocks and bonds to a favorite charity. Generally you can:
- Receive an immediate tax deduction for the value of the donated stock at the time you donate it.
- Avoid paying huge capital gains taxes on stock that has appreciated significantly in value since you purchased it.
- Reduce your taxable estate by donating stock to a charity.
As the rules governing these donations and applicable tax benefits can be quite complex, please consult your accountant or financial adviser about your personal situation before taking any action.
If you wish to donate shares from your stock holdings, please contact us at email@example.com for more information.
Throughout the year, BEF will work with a small number of Corporate Sponsors to deliver the BEF message to the community. If you are interested in working with the BEF as a corporate Sponsor, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
