Silent Auction Item Donations

If you work for, or have connections to a business that can donate items or gift certificates, we are always looking for items to offer during our fundraising events’ auctions and raffles. These donations help us to raise even more money during our events!

Bequests

Often when finalizing their wills, in addition to providing for their families and loved ones, individuals elect to provide donations to charitable organizations as part of their list of bequests. Bequests are an important way of ensuring support to your chosen charities once your estate has been distributed. In addition, your estate will be allowed a tax deduction for the amount of your bequest. Be Like Brit benefits greatly from the bequests of generous individuals with the forethought to provide lasting assistance to our programs and services.

Life Estate Contract

A donor may choose to establish a life estate contract through which he or she transfers ownership of a real estate deed to Be Like Brit while reserving the right for him/herself or other designated parties to live on the property or use it for life. Charitable tax deductions for life estate contracts are limited to properties that are personal residences.

Charitable Gift Annuities

Through a charitable gift annuity, an individual can create a contract with Be Like Brit in which he/she agrees to donate cash, stocks or other assets in exchange for a mutually agreed upon amount of income for life. In this way, the donor is providing for guaranteed income in his/her future while also ensuring needed support for Be Like Brit

Charitable Lead Trusts

A charitable lead trust offers donors the tax-wise opportunity to transfer assets to a trust that provides income to Be Like Brit for a specified period of time. At the end of that period, the trust reverts either back to the donor or a person designated by the donor.

Charitable Remainder Trust

By establishing a charitable remainder trust, an individual is able to transfer his/her assets into a trust while retaining a fixed or variable income for life. In this way, he/she realizes significant tax benefits, secures future income, determines future distributions to his/her beneficiaries and ensures support for Be Like Brit. Be Like Brit is awarded the remainder of the trust's worth after the death of the last beneficiary.

Pooled Income Fund

Through a pooled income fund, a common trust is established to which many donors can make contributions and retain for themselves a pro rata share of the fund's earnings each year. Following the death of a beneficiary, Be Like Brit receives the value of the fund that is attributable to that individual. This type of fund is similar to a mutual fund and provides many financial and estate planning benefits to the donor.

BLB is always looking for volunteers to help us with our four events every year. We have a Golf Tournament in June, a Walk in September, a Gala in November and a Bowling event in April.

Operations Center Volunteer

We receive dozens of donations each day and we’re always looking for volunteers who can come to the Operations Center in Worcester to help us organize the donations and pack them up for shipment to Haiti. We are also always in search of volunteers that can assist us with data entry tasks. If you or your group are interested in spending some time at the OC helping us with this task, please contact Volunteer@BeLikeBrit.org
