Workplace Giving & Employee Matching Grants
Workplace giving campaigns such as United Way or Combined Federal Campaigns and matching grant programs are in many companies throughout our area, and they offer an easy and efficient way to donate to your favorite cause. If your workplace participates in campaign giving or if they offer matching grants for employee gifts, please designate the Tri-County Humane Society to be the recipient of your donations, and encourage your co-workers to do the same! By doing so you will be saving lives.
Thrivent Choice Dollars
Eligible benefit members of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans can recommend where Thrivent Financial distributes a portion of its charitable outreach funds through Choice Dollars®, part of the organization's Thrivent Choice® charitable grant program. Tri-County Humane Society is a participating organization in Thrivent Choice.
Appreciated securities can be transferred to Tri County Humane Society (TCHS) without being sold. Securities are transferred "in kind" meaning that they are transferred to TCHS through a brokerage account. Then, when TCHS receives the securities, they are allowed to sell the securities without incurring a capital gain. The donor also does not incur a capital gain but may take a charitable deduction equal to the value of the securities at the time of transfer. A donor's tax advisor should be consulted. TCHS has established a brokerage account through Schluchter Investment Advisors in St. Cloud to assist donors with their gifting opportunities.
