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.

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 GIVING

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.

REMEMBER: When donating to a charitable organization, refrain from providing or verifying personal information via e-mail, text message or social media. Do not post, direct message, email, or provide over the phone any sensitive information to any organization or individual unless you have initiated the interaction via the contact information provided on the organization’s website. Be wary of individuals representing themselves as members of any charitable organization asking for donations via social networking sites or personal email addresses. Malicious individuals can mislead victims using copycat names that are similar to but not exactly the same as individuals and charitable organizations. If you are unsure as to whether or not a communication is legitimate, contact the organization directly.
