You can play a role in connecting people with purpose in many ways besides making a cash donation to One Vision.
In-kind gifts are donations of property, which can mean real estate, household goods, stocks, farm yields, or equipment and materials.
There are many creative ways to turn your in-kind gifts into support for services and tax benefits for you. For more information, contact Jennifer Pinske, Development Officer, at 641-355-1356.
The Thul House in Clear Lake was donated to our organization by a family and moved to a lot donated by another individual. This house, now located in a residential neighborhood near our Clear campus, is home to three men who receive occasional support from OV staff. Real estate gifts may be sold, with the proceeds going to support our services.
The General Store in Fort Dodge or Clear Lake accepts donations of lightly-used household goods and furniture, which then are sold to the general public. All proceeds from the stores benefit people supported by One Vision. Whether it's a bag of used clothing or the contents of an entire household, your donations to the stores benefit our community, while your gift may be eligible for tax deduction.
A donation of stock may be an excellent way for you to make a charitable contribution while realizing valuable tax benefits.
Farming families often donate bushels of corn or other commodities, with the proceeds from sale at their co-op coming to One Vision.
Equipment and Materials
Businesses may realize tax benefits by donating equipment or materials needed to maintain and improve One Vision facilities.
