Does your employer have a matching gift program? Many organizations support their employees’ philanthropic giving by matching a donation to their employees’ charities of choice either 100% or partially. Ask you employer’s human resources director if your company matches gifts.
In most cases, donors will need to complete a form and submit it us to verify a donation was made. We’ll return the completed form on your behalf in order to receive the matching gift.
If you have any question during this process, please feel free to Contact Us.
To honor the founders of Siskin Children’s Institute, our most prestigious giving club is The Mose and Garrison Siskin Society. The society recognizes benefactors who have remembered Siskin Children’s Institute through their long-range plans with such gifts as a bequest, life insurance, trust arrangement or other estate-planning vehicles.
For more information regarding gift planning, please Contact Us.
Your gift can make a big difference in the lives of children with special needs and their families. We hope you will consider joining the Mose and Garrison Siskin Society by including us in your long range planning.
Below are a few examples of how you can provide a lasting legacy.
Gifts of Retirement Plans
You may name Siskin Children’s Institute as beneficiary of a percentage or specific amount of your assets, as directed through your will or estate plan. Many people have retirement plans with balances totaling more than they need for a comfortable retirement. If you are older than age 70.5 and are in this situation, please consider making a gift from these plans.
Gifts that Pay the Donor Income
It is possible to make a gift to the Institute while retaining income for yourself or your family. Ask your financial planner about the Charitable Gift Annuity or Charitable Remainder Annuity trust.
Charitable Lead and Remainder Trust
Establishing a trust for the benefit of the Institute may provide tax planning benefits for you and your family while making a larger gift than you might have expected.
Gifts of Stock
Gifting stock directly to the Institute gives the donor tax benefits and allows the organization access to the gift immediately .
Gifts of Life Insurance
If no longer needed for family security, life insurance proceeds are an excellent way to make a significant gift to the Institute.
Gifts of Property
It might be possible to make a gift of property such as a home or farm and still reside there during your lifetime.

Volunteers are an important part of the Institute. They help achieve our mission of making a difference in the lives of children with special needs and their families every day. From working directly with children to helping with administrative tasks, volunteers help us achieve more and make a bigger impact in our community than we could do alone.
Our founders, Mose and Garrison Siskin, knew that stepping up to make a difference in the lives of others was important. Our volunteers carry their mission forward today.
The Institute needs energetic, talented, creative, and compassionate people to help us make a difference in our four areas of focus: outreach, health care, and home visiting.
