If you are interested in providing financial support to existing programs at the Foundation, or if you are interested in establishing new programs that are in alignment with the Foundation's mission, please contact the President of the Foundation. The Foundation provides those who are interested in furthering the development of the information technology profession with a means of reaching out to a national audience.
There are several attractive alternatives means of giving under current tax regulations. For example, gifts of appreciated property (including stocks, bonds, assorted securities, and real estate) can have a dramatic impact. The impact of a direct gift of the appreciated asset is often greater than the impact that would result from first selling the asset and then making a gift of cash, particularly if the assets have been held in excess of one year.
The Foundation also accepts gifts that are made as bequests in a donor's will. In addition, the Foundation is willing to explore other charitable giving methods such as charitable remainder unitrusts or charitable remainder annuity trusts. If you are interested in making a gift as part of your estate planning process, we invite you to become a member of the DPMA Legacy Society.
Finally, many companies are willing to match the gifts that their employees provide to eligible charitable causes, particularly in the area of education. You may want to determine whether this type of program exists at your company. If so, it provides a great way to increase the power of an individual employee's gift.
The Foundation is able to provide the services and scholarships that it currently offers as a direct result of the visionary support of past donors. We are grateful for this support and pledge our best efforts to wisely use these resources to enhance the opportunities that are available for information technology education.
