Other ways to give
Did you know there are a variety of ways to support Highfield without writing a check? Think of us the next time you are shopping online with Amazon or just reading a book by the light generated from your solar panels! However you choose to support Highfield, we are grateful.
For our local friends with “green” homes
Does your solar PV system create a credit on your Eversource electric bill? You can transfer the credit to Highfield Hall to help us keep the lights on and keep the gardens green! Call Eversource or your PV installer and have them send you a Schedule Z, which will allow credit donation.
Shop with Amazon Smile
Visit smile.amazon.com and select Highfield Hall & Gardens (Historic Highfield Inc.) as your charitable organization of choice. The products and prices are identical and Amazon will donate 0.5% of the proceeds to Highfield when you use the Amazon Smile link.
Contribute from your IRA tax-free
IRA owners over the age of 70 1/2 are able to direct their plan administrator to distribute up to $100,000 from an IRA to Highfield Hall & Gardens and other charities, tax-free. The donation counts toward your minimum required distribution, but is not included in your income for income tax purposes.
Include Highfield Hall & Gardens in your will or estate plans
Good estate planning could enable you to make a larger charitable gift than you ever thought possible. There are a variety of planned giving structures available to donors that combine your philanthropic interests with your financial needs and tax-planning strategies.
