Recurring Gift

Setting up a recurring gift is convenient, customizable, and environmentally friendly. Most important, recurring gifts ensure a steady source of support for Bridging.

How it works:

• You determine the amount and timing of your gift (1st or 15th of each month)
• Your monthly gift can be made by credit card or bank account
• You will receive a consolidated gift letter at the end of each year
• Your recurring gift will continue until we receive written notice to end recurring gift

Bridging’s EIN is 41-1725396

To setup a recurring gift, contact Maggie Mau, Donor Relations Manager, 952.888.0777 or maggie.mau@bridging.org.

Planned Giving

As a Bridging supporter, you know we depend on your financial generosity. Every gift we receive—large or small—is important to us, because YOU make it possible for us to serve over 4,000  households every year.

Throughout our history, Bridging has expanded the boundaries of what’s possible –providing a consistent shopping experience for clients, increasing our capacity, and growing our volunteer base through meaningful engagement. One driving force behind these advances is the friends of Bridging who make more possible today, and every day, through Planned Giving.

With many Planned Giving options available, you can provide a lasting gift and help us do more for more people. Planned Gifts help you prepare for your future, allow you to take sizeable income, gift, and estate tax deductions, and provide favorable capital gains tax treatment. They can also provide income for you and your loved ones for life.

Consider including Bridging in your estate plans. If you already have done so, please let us know. Otherwise, we would happy to discuss your Planned Giving to Bridging.

For more information, contact Maggie Mau, Donor Relations Manager, 952.888.0777 or maggie.mau@bridging.org.
