A Better Way depends on financial contributions from churches, civic groups, businesses, foundations, and individuals to bridge the gap between government grants and United Way allocations, and the total needed to provide quality services for abused women and children.

An endowment to provide predictable unrestricted income for A Better Way has been established with the Community Foundation of Muncie and Delaware County. A contribution to the A Better Way endowment will help ensure financial stability for years to come.

Donations for operating expenses and to the endowment are tax deductible.

Measure liquid medicine with the dosing syringe provided, or with a special dose-measuring spoon or medicine cup. If you do not have a dose-measuring device, ask your pharmacist for one. Lorazepam should be used for only a short time. Do not take this medicine for longer than your doctor recommends. Do not stop using lorazepam suddenly or you could have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms, including a seizure (convulsions). Ask your doctor how to safely stop using this medicine. Call your doctor if this medicine seems to stop working as well in treating your anxiety symptoms. Keep track of the amount of medicine used from each new bottle.

Donate – IRA or other Retirement Account

Both federal and state income taxes will be due on death benefits from an IRA or other retirement plans costing heirs (not a spouse) as much as 40%.  If estate taxes also apply, family members might keep as little as 30 cents on the dollar.  Giving funds from a retirement account to A Better Way preserves those funds free from tax.  Check with your accountant.

Donate – Neighborhood Assistance Program Tax Credits

Indiana tax credits, awarded by the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority, are available to A Better Way donors on a first-come-first-serve basis.  Those who contribute $100 or more will receive a credit for 50% of their donations when filing their Indiana State tax returns.  The contributions can also be used as a deduction on their federal tax return.

This means, for example, that for a $1,000 donation, the donor will receive a $500 state income tax credit.  This is much more than just a deduction…it comes right off the top of the donor’s state income tax liability.

Any person, business, or corporation that has an Indiana tax liability is eligible to receive these credits.  Credits are claimed for the year in which the donation is made.

Donate – Marketable Securities and Stock

The donation of appreciated stock is one of the most advantageous ways to give because the gift amount is based on   the current full fair market value. The full gift amount is deductible as an itemized charitable contribution for federal income tax purposes, and no tax will be paid on the capital gain if the stock is transferred directly to A Better Way Services, Inc.

Donate – Life Insurance

Life insurance can be an excellent way to give a major future gift. The donor names A Better Way Services, Inc. as the beneficiary and/or owner of a new or existing life insurance policy.

Donate – Bequests

Consider including A Better Way in your will. A gift from a bequest in a will or trust is an excellent way to leave your legacy in support of victims of domestic violence.

Donate – Charitable Gift Annuities

Gift annuities have become a great way to generate tax-free lifetime income and a tax deduction for the donor, as well as making a difference in the lives of abused women and their children.

Donate – Charitable Remainder Trusts

A charitable remainder trust provides income to the donor and/or loved ones. After the death(s) of those receiving the income, the trust assets are transferred to A Better Way.
