Other Ways to Give

While we appreciate our monetary supporters, Free Arts is also aware of the financial benefits that come from other fundraising resources. Below is a listing of non-traditional ways Free Arts raises funds for the children we serve.


In-Kind Contributions

Definition: paid or given in goods, commodities, or service instead of money.

Free Arts accepts many in-kind goods that can serve as a direct resource to our children and volunteers, or, can be transferred into a monetary benefit for the organization. Art supplies are one of the most popular ways to donate in-kind goods that will greatly enhance the experience of our children. Learn about hosting an art supply drive and see items currently on our wish list.

Please Note: In-Kind donations and services are acknowledged by Free Arts in writing, but the donor is fully responsible for the stated value of the in-kind donation.


Gifts of Stock

There are great benefits to both you the donor and Free Arts when donating gifts of stock. No capital gains tax is paid by the donor. Free Arts can accept stock and either sell or hold with no tax penalties. Free Arts will acknowledge the donation at Fair Market Value when the stock was donated.

If you have stock you wish to gift to Free Arts, please contact our Development Department directly to facilitate.


Planned Giving/Bequests

A planned giving or bequest gift is very personal for the donor and we truly appreciate being a part of this decision. Please contact our Development Department directly to find out the process for Free Arts involvement in this type of donation.

There are many resources available to learn more about making a planned gift. Free Arts encourages you to contact your personal tax or estate planning adviser for more information.


Vehicle Donation Program

Free Arts has partnered with Goodwill Industries of Central Arizona’s Vehicle Donation program to handle all vehicle donations. Our partnership with Goodwill allows for a full-service experience for our donors, maintains all tax responsibility is held to IRS standards, and benefits Free Arts with 70% of the net sale proceeds from the donated vehicle.
