DONOR ADVISED FUNDS
A donor advised fund is a form of philanthropic giving in which an individual creates a personal charitable savings account and deposits their contributions of cash, stock, or other assets, without choosing a specific recipient right away. If you have a DAF, please consider Code Platoon! Clients of Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, and BNY Mellon can easily make a designation through the DAF Direct window on this page.
We welcome support from companies that are passionate about our mission. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
STOCKS AND BONDS
Code Platoon is grateful to receive donations of securities in the form of stocks and bonds.
In order to receive a gift acknowledgment for tax purposes you must share with Code Platoon:
- The donor’s name
- The donor’s mailing address
- The name of the stock gift
- The amount of stock donated

WILLS, TRUST AND LIFE INSURANCE
Bequests are donations that are made through a will or a living trust. You can name Code Platoon as a beneficiary in your will/estate for a specific amount or a percentage (see form below) or designate Code Platoon as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy. Code Platoon suggests consulting a legal professional before drafting a will.
Code Platoon must be named as the owner and beneficiary of the insurance policy for it to be tax-deductible.
In-kind donations are of two types: material assets like computers or desks, and volunteer hours. If you’re interested in making an in-kind donation of volunteer hours please click here. If you’d like to donate equipment or other material assets to us please send us an email by clicking here.
