You are the reason we have survived for so many years. You and other amazing people, generous folks, true believers, from all over the world have been on this journey with us. Today, we are asking you to consider taking another step with us and making a deeper commitment, as we work to bring all our folks home. Together we will shape the future.
Can you become a recurring monthly donor to Prison Radio/RJF?:
Lynn L is an anti-racist activist and grandmother from Berkeley, California. She shifted her Prison Radio support to a monthly gift in 2021. It allowed her to give a little more and more consistently. Monthly gifts are dependable, consistent, and come right when we need to pay the light bill and the phone bills.
Did you know that your employer can often match your gift?
Susie M, a Prison Radio volunteer sound engineer and now an Apple employee, does just that. Apple matches gifts their employees make using Benvity. Once a year, Susie makes a gift through Benevity to the Redwood Justice Fund/Prison Radio. Apple matches the gift dollar for dollar, sometimes $2 to 1, a double match! Ask your company if they do matching grants. It is a great way to amplify your giving.
Did you know there are tax savings when you make gifts of stock?
Saving on taxes while supporting abolition; what is not to like about that? Ed recently retired from a tech startup and he wanted to diversify his investment portfolio as one company’s stock had shot up. If he sold his stock and kept the proceeds, he would have to pay a boatload of taxes on that windfall. By transferring the stock to Redwood Justice Fund/Prison Radio, he was able to make a generous gift to our work and keep the government from taking its share to build the military.
Did you know that most wealth in America is held in property and folks estates?
