Other Ways to Give

In addition to financial contributions and volunteering, UDS offers other many other ways to support our organization. If you have any questions, please call our main office at 330-762-9755 or contact us online now.

Planned Giving

A variety of planned giving options enable you to plan for your future and that of your family. By providing meaningful support for the future of United Disability Services and the people we serve, you may save tax dollars in the process. There are a number of way to donate through Planned Giving:

  • Name UDS in your will
  • Establish a charitable trust naming UDS as a beneficiary
  • Naming UDS as owner and beneficiary of a paid-up life insurance policy

To learn more about Planned Giving, contact your financial advisor or attorney and then call UDS at 330-762-9755.

Stocks

Giving a gift of publicly traded stock that has increased in value that you have owned for more than one year may provide greater tax benefits than giving cash. Contact your financial advisor to determine if donating your stock to UDS is the right option for you.

Matching Gifts

You can make your charitable gift stretch even farther with a matching gift from your employer. Corporate matching gift programs give employees an opportunity to increase the impact of their tax-deductible gifts. Contact your human resources department to see if your company has a matching gift program and how you can participate.

In-Kind Donations

United Disability Services gladly accepts in-kind donations, but, due to limited storage, we are unable to accept donations of large durable medical equipment. This includes electric wheelchairs unless we have been made aware of an already existing need through one of our programs. If you have an item you would like to donate, contact us to see if we are able to accept it at this time.
