You can make a difference in the lives of individuals with disabilities. Consider one of these options:
- Employ or help find employment for someone with a disability. Remember, we’re looking for real work, regular wages in ordinary places…one person at a time.
- 2016 Agency Needs List
- Volunteer time.
- Advocate on behalf of individuals with disabilities – strengthen their voices so they can be heard and understood. (OCARC, People First Wisconsin)
For Portal to continue providing meaningful and enriching services for people with disabilities, we must generate at least one-third of our annual operating revenues through gifts, grants and fundraisers.
We hope you will consider Portal worthy of your support.
Help Insure The Future
We invite you to consider making a gift to The Portal Industries Endowment Fund – managed by the Greater Milwaukee Foundation. A growing endowment fund will enable us to lessen our dependence upon government funding, allow us to realize greater financial independence and permit greater flexibility in program development and performance. Your gift to the Portal Industries Endowment Fund will help assure a more secure future for the agency, service continuity and better outcomes.
Assets other than cash – appreciated stock or other property that has increased in value since it was acquired may be used to fund a charitable gift.
Charitable Remainder Trusts – make a gift while providing yourself with an income for life or time period you specify. Your gift will be invested to provide you with either a fixed income (annuity trust) or an annually adjusted income (unitrust). A tax deduction is allowed at the time you create the trust.
Life Insurance – Name Portal, Inc. as beneficiary to receive all or a portion of the proceeds of a life insurance policy you no longer need.
Memorial Gifts – given as a way to remember a family member, a friend, an associate or anyone who has been a vital part of your life.
Gifting Through Your Will – You may specify a particular amount, a percentage of the assets that pass through your will, or what’s left over after providing for your heirs and others.
Gifting as a Final Beneficiary – the remaining funds of an IRA or pension fund.
For more information about the Portal Industries Endowment Fund or other gift opportunities, please contact Marlene Morgan, Development Coordinator or Carole Stuebe, Executive Director.
There can be no substitute for careful tax planning when trying to maximize charitable gifts. We encourage you to consult with your financial advisor about tax benefits associated with the many and varied gifting options.
