Ways to give
You can support Local Independent Charities of America and its members by making a credit card contribution online. Making a donation through our secure server is fast and easy, and you will receive an acknowledgement for your tax records. All contributions are split among our member charities.
Does your employer match donations? If so, then use our easy Corporate Match Form to double your donation! Simply select your employer from the drop down list and double the gift that you contribute to Local Independent Charities of America.
Give At Work
LICA member charities participate in employee giving campaigns in corporate, state, and municipal workplaces throughout the country. Look for them in your company's giving list. If you don't see them, call (415) 925-2663 for information on how to add them to the list.
We don't care what shape your car is in! We'll take it in our vehicle donation program. We will take any old car, truck, boat or other vehicle off your hands for free. This is a service provided by VDAC (Vehicle Donation to Any Charity). The pick-up is totally free and any proceeds will go directly to support LICA and its member charities. Donate your vehicle online or call (877) 999-8322.
Write A Check
There's nothing wrong with giving the old fashioned way. If you write a check to the federation the proceeds will be shared with all the member charities. Our mailing address is 1100 Larkspur Landing Circle, Suite 340, Larkspur, CA 94939.
If you own shares of a stock, mutual fund, or other type of security, you can donate all or some of those shares to Local Independent Charities of America. The sale of your securities qualifies as a tax-exempt donation. Contact Lisa Fierro at (415) 925-2663 for more information.
Making charitable bequest in your will or trust gives you the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy as well as reduce your estate tax. You can give a specific sum of money, a percentage of your estate, or what remains of your estate after you have provided for all your other beneficiaries. You can make an unrestricted gift, which allows the charities to use your funds as they see fit, or you can restrict your gift to fund only certain types of programs you specify. For more information please contact Patrick Maguire at (415) 925-2663.
