Ways to Give
The Izzy Foundation wouldn’t be able to provide these services and support without the wonderful support of those who contribute through cash and in-kind donations. Below are some ways in which you can participate.
Silent Auction Donations
Throughout the year we have opportunities for businesses, restaurants, and artists to contribute auction items for one or more of our events. Please click the links below to see the details for providing an item for each event:
- GALA (Live and Silent Auctions)
- Artist Opportunities
- Other Donation Opportunities including travel, entertainment, spa, sports, fitness, beauty, restaurants, home
- GOLF TOURNAMENT
- Donation Opportunities
Cash donations can be made in numerous ways: one-time donations, gifts in honor or memory of a loved one, recurring monthly donations, company-sponsored match-gift programs, or sign up for workplace giving to make a pre-tax donation each pay period.
Mail Donations: The Izzy Foundation, P.O. Box 2326, Providence, RI 02906
Company Sponsored Match Programs: Please check with your company to see if they provide a special program to match charitable contributions. If so, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to work with you to complete the process.
Workplace Pre-Tax Donation: Many employers provide for monthly pre-tax donations to be made directly to The Izzy Foundation through their payroll process. One organization that works with employers to provide this service is the United Way. Please check with your company to see if you can set-up a recurring, pre-tax donation.
In-kind donations are always appreciated and really help to defray the costs of our programs, activities, events, and services.

A gift of appreciated securities held for more than one year may provide significant benefits to you as a contributor, such as:
- Entitling you to a charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the gifted securities as of the date of the gift.
- Eliminating capital gains tax that would ordinarily become due if you had sold the appreciated securities on the open market and donated the proceeds from the sale to charity.
