Employee gift match

Ask your employer if they offer matching donation programs for your charitable giving. Some larger businesses and corporations even offer 2:1 matching tripling the impact of your Partners Asia grant! It’s easy!

  1. Get a matching gift form from your company’s Human Resources department. Some companies will also match gifts made by spouses or retired personnel.
  2. Send the completed form to:
    Partners Asia
    436 14th Street, Suite 411
    Oakland, CA 94612
  3. We will inform your employer of the amount of the original grant. Your employer will then forward a matching gift to Partners Asia multiplying the value of your generous grant.

Planned giving (will)

The simplest way to make a planned gift is to name to Partners Asia in your will. Gifts large and small help our Partners take action and remain strong.

Bequests to Partners Asia provide tremendous tax benefits because they are wholly deductible from an individual’s estate.

Sample wording can be as simple as:

I bequeath ($ dollar amount or description of property) to Partners Asia (with our tax identification number provided upon request).

Bequest intentions may be included at the time of a new will is drawn, or added to an existing will through a simple codicil.

Designate Partners Asia as a Beneficiary. Name Partners Asia as a beneficiary to receive assets such as retirement plans and life insurance policies. Simply fill out a form that is entirely separate from your will—which makes this approach an easy way to give.

Not only is it an easy way to give, but it’s also flexible. You can review and adjust beneficiary designations anytime.
