Individuals give 75% of all the money that charities receive. Most people give out of friendship, faith, love, or a desire to make a difference. The Hord Foundation, Inc., a 501(3)(c) non-profit organization, relies on the friendship, support and contributions of its volunteers and donors. Our goal is to help make a difference in the lives of those African American students who desire to obtain a college education. The Foundation’s ability to provide over $250,000 in college scholarships to area African American students is dependent upon the generosity of the entire community including, corporations, churches, and inividuals.
The Hord Foundation, Inc. conducts two major fundraising events:
Consider leaving a legacy. The options are vast: bequests, charitable gift annuities, charitable trusts, life insurance, stocks, bonds, jewelry even real estate.
If you decide to leave a legacy, please consider sharing your plan with your attorney and financial advisors, who will draft appropriate language and help structure the gift effectively.
Through a matching contribution program, companies engaged in ‘Employee Giving Campaigns’ allow employees to direct corporate contributions to a nonprofit organization such as the Hord Foundation, Inc. Many companies match dollar for dollar the donations that their employees make to eligible nonprofits..
