How Your Monetary Gift Helps 

Save a Life

  • Making a charitable gift to Harmony House is an important and personal decision. The satisfaction of giving comes from knowing that you are investing in the lives of individuals who are survivors of domestic violence in our local community.
  • Harmony House is a program to assist survivors of domestic violence in establishing abuse free lives. We operate a 110 bed emergency facility and 8 transitional apartments that offer a safe, secure and supportive environment. Harmony House provides hot meals, clothing and personal hygiene products. Additionally, we provide program services that help survivors. These include case management, support groups, educational classes, childcare and outreach services (click here to learn more about our services).
  • Remember…Missouri taxpayers who contribute $100 or more to Harmony House may be eligible for a 50% tax credit toward their state taxes.

Types of Giving

Choose to Make a Difference

  • Gifts of Cash: The out-of-pocket costs can be less than the dollar amount of the gift because of allowable federal tax deductions and Missouri Shelter Tax Credits.
  • Endowment: A hardworking, perpetual resource because the principal remains intact, and investment income is used to provide financial support to Harmony House.
  • Matching Gifts: Check to see if your employer will match your gift.
  • Gifts of Personal Property: Works of art, books, vehicles, antiques, etc. are considered personal property. Your deduction depends on the appraised value and how the gift will be used by Harmony House.
  • Gifts of Real Property: You can give private, commercial or agricultural property. If your property has decreased in value, you might consider selling it and contributing the proceeds to receive both capital loss and charitable gift deductions.
  • Planned Giving: A planned gift is a set of ways a donor can leave money or assets to a nonprofit upon his/her death, or a way of investing money so that the donor receives benefits during his/her lifetime and then bequeaths the remaining funds to Harmony House.
  • Planned Gifts of Securities: Stocks, bonds, mutual funds and IRAs, etc. may provide an excellent way to make a major gift. A gift of appreciated property (assets now worth more than you paid for them) may enable you the opportunity to deduct the fair market value without the need to pay capital gains taxes if transferred to Harmony House before the sale.
  • Planned Gifts of Trusts: There are many ways to give including charitable remainder trusts, deferred gift annuities, charitable lead trusts, etc. Some gifts return income or other financial benefits to you in return for your contribution.
  • Planned Gift of Insurance: Name Harmony House as owner or beneficiary on new or no longer needed policies.
  • Planned Gift of Bequests: As part of your will, bequeath a specific dollar amount or a portion of what remains after your obligations to others are fulfilled.
  • For planned giving, major gifts, or financial donation questions, feel free to contact our Executive Director, Patty Ingle at 417.837.7700
