Join the Heartbeat, Monthly Donation Program

Sustain families in our community through our Heartbeat monthly giving program. Choose any amount you’d like to give on a monthly basis. Your donation is automatically transferred each month from your checking account, credit card or ATM/debit card to Jacob’s Heart Children’s Cancer Support Services.

Donate Appreciated Stocks

Giving appreciated stock you’ve held for more than a year is better than giving cash. You can increase your gift to Jacob’s Heart and your tax deduction by donating appreciated stocks.

After you have held a stock for more than one year, at the time of the donation you get a tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the stock, not to your cost basis. That is, when you donate stock to Jacob’s Heart, you can take a tax deduction for the full fair market value at the time you donate it…not what you paid when you bought it. Please contact Lori Butterworth for more information.

Make a Planned Gift and Leave a Legacy

Leaving a gift, such as a bequest in your final plans, shows your commitment to the mission of Jacob’s Heart and its profound impact on generations to come. If you would like to include Jacob’s Heart in your will, simply tell your attorney to write Jacob’s Heart Children’s Cancer Support Services, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Tax ID# 68-0413822 on your beneficiary designation form. For additional information, please contact Lori Butterworth.

Donate Your Car

Donate your vehicle to Jacob’s Heart and all of the proceeds will directly support our children and their families. You may also be able to deduct the fair market value of your vehicle as a charitable contribution for income tax purposes. We have partnered with West Coast Limousines, which accepts most vehicles, including cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats and RVs. The donation process is easy by phone at 831-724-9100. West Coast Limousines does not take any percentage; 100% of the value of the sale of your car will go directly to Jacob’s Heart!
