Matching Gifts Program

Many individuals choose to maximize their charitable giving by participating in their company’s Matching Gifts program.

Your company’s human resources or community affairs department can provide information about matching gifts. Examples of companies we work with are: Aetna, Applied Materials, AT&T, Bank of America, Dell, Inc., Freescale, Global Impact, Hospira, IBM, and Local Independent Charities.

Planned Giving / Estate Giving

Planned giving is a great way to make a lasting contribution to a nonprofit you care about, a gift that can also result in favorable tax considerations for you.

El Buen Samaritano is honored to be a recipient of these types of commitments, and will work with you to choose one of the many options that best suits your needs. We recommend consulting your estate lawyer or financial advisor about making a planned gift that is right for you.

For more information about planned giving opportunities, please contact our Resource Development Department at 512.439.8912.

Special Event Sponsorship

A great way for individuals and companies to lend significant, visible support is through sponsoring a special event.

Although other opportunities are available throughout the year, our largest event is our annual Hands for Hope community event in November.

For information on upcoming sponsorship opportunities, please email Minnie Hollyman at mhollyman@elbuen.org.

Community Fundraisers

Individuals and businesses in the community often choose to host independent fundraising drives or events to benefit El Buen Samaritano, and we so appreciate the community enthusiasm!

Community fundraisers take many shapes and forms, from birthday parties to employee fundraisers to happy hours. Please let us know about your plans to organize or sponsor a fundraiser so we can recognize your efforts and offer support if we are able. We do ask that you please give us a chance to review any publicity material that includes our logo or name before distribution.

For more information, email Minnie Hollyman at mhollyman@elbuen.org.
