Your unrestricted gift to “Woods’ Greatest Need” will support all areas of our programs and is vital in giving us the flexibility to allocate resources to current priorities that are aligned with our mission. You can pay tribute to a friend or loved one by making a gift to this fund.
The Heart of Woods is a special group of supporters who believe so deeply in Woods’ mission that they have decided to become monthly donors. When you choose to make your gift on a monthly basis, you provide sustaining support throughout the year to help people with disabilities get the level of care they need to be safe and healthy.
Your donation is used to support an Employee Recognition Dinner in November, anniversary awards, special recognition awards and holiday gift cards.

Double your Gift through your Employer’s Matching Gift Program

Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift!

Make a Gift of Stock
Gifting stock (appreciated securities) can be more beneficial than giving cash. Because you pay no capital gains tax on the appreciated securities, the after-tax cost is less than a gift of cash.
How it works:
- You transfer securities to Woods Services.
- Woods immediately sells your securities and uses the proceeds as you have directed.
- You receive gift credit and an immediate income tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date they are transferred to Woods, no matter what you originally paid for them.
- You pay no capital gains tax on the securities you donate.
Our broker is RBC Capital. For questions regarding the transfer, please contact Jerry Vuono at BestVest Investments, LTD. at 484-448-6186 or email@example.com.
