There's nothing wrong with giving the old fashioned way. If you write a check to the federation the proceeds will be shared with all the member charities. Our mailing address is 100 Smith Ranch Road, Suite 122, San Rafael, CA 94903.

Donate Stock

If you own shares of a stock, mutual fund, or other type of security, you can donate all or some of those shares to America's Best Local Charities. The sale of your securities qualifies as a tax-exempt donation. Contact Lisa Fierro at (415) 925-2663 for more information.

Charitable Bequests

Making charitable bequest in your will or trust gives you the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy as well as reduce your estate tax. You can give a specific sum of money, a percentage of your estate, or what remains of your estate after you have provided for all your other beneficiaries. You can make an unrestricted gift, which allows the charities to use your funds as they see fit, or you can restrict your gift to fund only certain types of programs you specify. For more information please contact us at (415) 925-2663.
