Other Ways To Give

Gifts of Stock

To make a gift of stock, call us for the Ele’s Place account number at Merrill Lynch, so that we may ensure the stock is sold after you transfer it. Call Lisa Fanzini, Finance Management, at (517) 482-1315 ext. 15. 
 
Matching Gifts
A gift to Ele’s Place may be matched by your employer. If your employer has a matching gifts program in place, the personnel office will have a form for you to complete. You will either attach a copy of our letter of thanks for your gift, or you will need to forward the form to us to complete, verifying your gift. Some employers will match their employees’ charitable gifts even if they do not have a formal matching gifts program. It pays to check! 
 
Planned Gifts
We appreciate the foresight of those who have named Ele’s Place in their estate plans or as a beneficiary of their retirement plans or IRAs. To establish a bequest through your will or personal trust, add “Ele’s Place, Lansing, MI” or "Ele's Place, Ann Arbor, MI" as a beneficiary. If you feel comfortable doing so, we are grateful to receive a copy of the portion of the will in which we are named. For more information on planning a gift for Ele’s Place, call Kate Powers, Director of Major and Planned Gifts and Interim Managing Director - Lansing, at (517) 482-1315 ext. 37.
