There are so many ways that you can support Ndoto! Here are a few options:
This is the way most people choose to give. Simply go to our secure Donate page. You can easily set up a profile on our page so that you can come back in the future to update payment methods.
Give Via Check
This is a popular way to give because it saves Ndoto credit card fees. You can write out a check, but many people love to use their bank’s Auto Bill Pay system to send checks to us. Make it out to Ndoto and send it to:
2526 Rosebud Court
Carrollton, TX 75006
Did you know that Amazon will give 0.5% of your order total to a nonprofit of your choice at no cost to you? All you have to do is log in at smile.amazon.com rather than the usual site and the rest of the process is the same. You can even shop at Amazon and create your shopping cart, then load up Amazon Smile and your cart will still be there.
Many companies will provide matches for their employees’ charitable contributions. Because Ndoto has secular components to its work, even more companies are willing to match contributions. We are happy to designate yours and your company’s donations for secular work if necessary. Your company may need our EIN number to look us up: that’s 27-0984861. Please contact John Seale if you have further questions.
If you are a member of Thrivent Financial, you have the option of designating where Thrivent donates a portion of its corporate profits. You receive “Choice Dollars” based on the value of products you own with them. Visit the Thrivent Choice page to learn more.
Donations of Physical Items
Ndoto is pleased to receive in-kind donations from donors. Our US operations may regularly need supplies or technology. For our Kenya operations, please be mindful that all donated goods must be physically transported to Kenya in people’s suitcases anytime we have people going. Ndoto commonly has need for used laptops, tablets, smartphones, and other electronics. There may be other specific needs that Ndoto has in the US or in Kenya. Sometimes a monetary gift is best for our Kenya supplies, either because it is challenging to transport objects or because the items are available in Kenya. Ndoto prefers to support the local economy when possible, as bringing locally-available items from the US deprives a local business of a potential sale. Please contact John Seale before making any donation.
Donor Advised Funds
Please speak with your financial advisor before making any financial decisions, but by opening a Donor Advised Fund you may be able to achieve tax benefits. Donor Advised Funds allow you to place money for future charitable giving in an investment fund and receive tax deductions immediately. Your financial services firm will have to verify that Ndoto is a qualified charity, and they should be able to do so using our EIN: 27-0984861. If they need to speak with a representative of the organization, please direct them to John Seale. Once they have verified us, you can direct your Donor Advised Fund to send us a check directly at any time.
Donations of Stock and Planned Giving
We have an investment account set up specifically to receive donations of securities. Please speak with your financial adviser before making any financial decisions, but you may have significant tax benefits by donating appreciated assets rather than cash. Our account is at Thrivent Financial. You will need the following two numbers:
DTC # 0226
Account # TY9-146023
Please contact John Seale if you are making a donation so that we can watch for it to come through!
Additionally, we are prepared to have conversations with you around planned giving, whether it’s through a will, a charitable trust, life insurance contract, or others. Please contact John Seale. This may be a great way for you to support Ndoto while realizing tax savings now and in the future.
We are considering different options for receiving gifts internationally. Please contact John Seale about this. If you would like to send a wire transfer to our US bank account, the SWIFT code is CPASUS44741 and the account number is 6721640394. Please notify us before sending any wire transfer.
