There are many ways that you can give to support Roca’s efforts. Make an online donation now, of either a one time or monthly amount. Send Roca a check, appreciated stock, or recommend a grant through your donor-advised fund. You can designate your gift towards a specific purpose, or let us apply it where it is needed most.
Ways to Give
If you donate via credit card on our website you can specify any amount, either as a one-time or monthly gift. You can designate your gift for a specific purpose, such as Roca Baltimore or Young Mothers. You will receive an email letter confirming your tax-deductible gift for tax purposes. If your employer has a matching gifts program, this donation may qualify.
If you prefer, you can mail in a check made payable to Roca, Inc. and send to Roca, Inc., 101 Park St, Chelsea MA 02150. If you want to designate your gift for a specific purpose, include that on your check or any cover letter you send. We will send you a letter acknowledging your gift for tax purposes.
A donor-advised fund (DAF) is another way for you to make donations to non-profit organizations such as Roca. You set up your fund with cash, securities or other property, and receive an immediate tax benefit. Your DAF is administered by a financial institution such as Schwab Charitable, Fidelity Charitable or Vanguard Charitable, or community foundations such as The Boston Foundation and the Baltimore Community Foundation.
When making a grant recommendation through your DAF account, search for Roca either by name or by EIN 22-3223641. If you want to designate your gift to a specific purpose, such as Roca Baltimore or for Young Mothers, enter that designation by whatever method your account supports. The DAF administrator will distribute funds to Roca with a cover letter that includes your designation.
If your DAF is administered by Schwab, Fidelity or Mellon, you can login to your account via DAF Direct below, and you’ll be taken directly to the Grant Recommendation page that is prefilled with Roca’s information.
Many employers support giving through matching gifts or other workplace program. If your employer has worked with us to create a special program, look for your company’s name in the online form, or specify that on your check or an accompanying letter so that we can credit your donation.
If you have stock that has appreciated in value, you may find tax advantages to making your donation via a simple transfer. Contact Jodi Wolin at Jodi_Wolin@rocainc.com or (617) 875-3743 and she can work with you or your broker on the details.
Roca participates in Amazon Smile, through which Amazon donates 0.5% of your eligible purchases to Roca. Occasionally – typically, near the holiday season – we’ll post a Smiles CharityList of items we need, and you can support us by purchasing through Amazon.
