Other Ways to Give

Automatically recurring giving is an easy way to support the NFA that aligns with your budget and schedule. It is convenient, environmentally friendly, and helps ensure a steady source of funding for the NFA. 

To set up a recurring gift, please start by logging in to your profile and save a payment method. Then contact Mily Harrod, Membership Manager, to establish your monthly, quarterly, or annual gift in whatever amount you would like. 

Once this is set up, NFA will securely charge your credit card on the first day of the month, quarter, or year. 

If you have questions or would like to begin, adjust, or cancel your recurring gift, please contact Michael Williams at mwilliams@nfaonline.org or 312-332-6682

Many companies support their employees and retirees in their personal philanthropy and fundraising efforts by matching individual contributions to their favorite nonprofits. When you make a contribution to the National Flute Association, please explore whether your company has a matching gift program. Additionally, your company may have a foundation or giving program that provides grants to support organizations and communities close to the heart of its employees.

Giving stock, securities and mutual funds that have increased in value and been held for more than one year are one of the most popular assets to use when making a gift to the National Flute Association. Making a gift of securities or mutual funds to us offers you the chance to support our work while realizing important benefits for yourself. Neither you nor the NFA will owe any capital gains tax on the donated stock, and you will be eligible to receive a federal income tax deduction for the full value of your contribution. Please consult with your tax advisor to find out more about how these benefits apply to your particular situation.

To make a contribution of stock, securities, or mutual funds, contact Jennifer Clarke at jclarke@nfaonline.org or Michael Williams at mwilliams@nfaonline.org. Please include your name and contact information, the name of your brokerage firm, and the name of the stock and the number of shares you are planning to donate. After notifying us of your impending gift, you will receive instructions for your broker to transfer your contribution to the NFA’s account.

Your contribution’s value will be calculated from the average selling price on the date your contribution is completed (the date it is transferred into the NFA’s account)
