Champions of Hope are our most impactful donors that sustain our mission by generously contributing at least $1,000 annually or have given a one-time gift of $10,000 or more.
Each understands and is enthusiastic about our work and has become a loyal friend to the Andrew L. Hicks, Jr. Foundation. Some Champions of Hope contribute monthly, some sponsor individual events, some prefer to be called on for needed financial help on special projects and others choose to give in even more creative ways.
Regardless of the vehicles or methods of their contributions, all of our Champions of Hope play a significant part in our work to connect communities, empower youth, and build futures. Their generous support sustains our efforts, and encourages our hearts.
You can become a Champion of Hope by making a recurring monthly $100 donation, pledging $1,000 each year, contributing $10,000 or more as a one-time gift, donating appreciated stock totaling $10,000 in a 3-year period, or bequeathing a gift of $10,000 or more to the Andrew L. Hicks, Jr. Foundation.
Champions of Hope will be invited to share in the joy of the work and all that God has accomplished through them and the Andrew L. Hicks, Jr. Foundation at Abundant Goodness, our celebratory event held in June.
If you believe in our mission and seek to make a significant impact on the youth that we serve, please reach out to Karen Hicks, our Executive Director, to talk about how you can join the circle and become a Champion of Hope. Karen can be reached at 484-390-0689 or Karen@ALHjr.org and she would be most excited to talk with you.
Gifting of appreciated stocks and/or mutual funds held for longer than one year is a popular and tax effective way to make a donation to the Andrew L. Hicks, Jr. Foundation. If you donate an appreciated security in-kind, you may be entitled to receive the full deduction for the market value of the security at the time of the donation, while eliminating the capital gains tax that would be due if you had sold the asset yourself. Please seek the advice of your tax or legal advisor.
The Andrew L. Hicks, Jr. Foundation has established a brokerage account explicitly for this purpose. If you are interested in gifting appreciated stock to the Andrew L. Hicks, Jr. Foundation, please contact Karen Hicks at 484-390-0689 or Karen@ALHjr.org for further instructions.
The Andrew L. Hicks, Jr. Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) public charity and is eligible to receive grants from Donor Advised Funds.
