Donor Questions

Click on a question below for an answer.

What types of gifts will you accept?

The most common type of gift is cash. A gift of cash provides immediate support and is the simplest contribution to document for tax purposes.  Other types of gifts include securities (stocks, bonds and mutual funds), real estate or other property, as well as bequests and other forms of planned giving. Additionally, gifts of in-kind building materials or program/medical supplies are extremely valuable.  For more information, contact us at 610-298-1820 or at This email address is being protected from spambots.

How can I make a donation in memory or in honor of someone?

Visit our online donation center and fill in the appropriate information.  We will send the person or family a special acknowledgment of your gift.  The amount of your gift will remain confidential.  If you are mailing in your contribution, please provide a note that tells us the name of the person being honored or remembered and the names and addresses of anyone who should be notified about your gift.

Can I make a Planned Giving Gift through my estate?

You can provide for Dragonfly Forest through your estate. There are many easy, planned-giving options from which you can choose:

  • Make a planned gift by naming Dragonfly Forest as a beneficiary in your Will or by naming Dragonfly Forest as owner and beneficiary of your life insurance policy.
  • Make a planned gift to Dragonfly Forest and receive an income for life through the establishment of a charitable trust that names Dragonfly Forest as a beneficiary.  Your attorney can advise you of the various types of charitable trusts and the estate tax benefits of each, and assist you in setting up a planned gift that is tailored to your personal needs. You also may want to talk with your attorney or financial advisor about the tax benefits of naming Dragonfly Forest as a beneficiary of your retirement plans.
  •  One of the easiest ways to make a planned gift to Dragonfly Forest is by leaving a bequest in your Will. There are several ways you can do this.
    • Give a specific amount of money to Dragonfly Forest or give a specified percentage of the residue of your estate to Dragonfly Forest (the residue of your estate is that which is left over after all specific gifts have been made, whether charitable or non-charitable).
    • Designate your gift for a specific purpose, such as the Endowment Fund, or for unrestricted use.
    • The following simple language can be used to make your gift:

"I, [NAME], of [CITY, STATE, ZIP CODE] give, devise, and bequeath to Dragonfly Forest, Inc. (Federal Tax ID # 23-3094506), or its successor, the sum of _________ Dollars ($_________) for its unrestricted use and purpose."

OR

"I, [NAME], of [CITY, STATE, ZIP CODE] give, devise, and bequeath ________ percent (________%) of my residuary estate to Dragonfly Forest, Inc. (Federal Tax ID # 23-3094506), or its successor, for its unrestricted use and purpose."

A bequest may be included in the body of a will or as an amendment (codicil). Gifts made through a bequest typically provide an estate tax deduction. Please consult your attorney and/or financial advisor for specific information.

Can I make a pledge payable over several years?

Yes, we recognize that many people are able to make an even greater impact if they are able to spread out their contributions. 

Is my gift tax deductible?

Dragonfly Forest is a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit corporation and all donors receive a written acknowledgment of their contribution that serves as an official tax receipt.  Please consult your accountant for all tax deductibility questions.
