Ways To Give


Make a Donation Online
You can direct your support towards an area of WHRC’s work that speaks to you.

Alternative Ways of Giving
You don’t need to be a billionaire to make a difference at WHRC. There are many alternative ways to support our mission beyond donating cash.

  • Turn your old gas-guzzler into a climate change solution
    Vehicle donations are tax deductible and benefit WHRC’s mission. It’s more than cars – you can donate trucks, boats, planes, motorcycles, RVs and heavy farm equipment too, running or not.
  • 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 WHRC and other charities, tax-free. The donation counts toward your minimum required distribution, but is not included in your income for income tax purposes.
  • Shop with Amazon Smile
    Visit smile.amazon.com and select WHRC as your charitable organization of choice. The products and prices are identical, but Amazon will donate 0.5% of the proceeds to WHRC when you use the Amazon Smile link.
  • 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 WHRC to help us keep the lights on and the computers running! Call Eversource or your PV installer and have them send you a Schedule Z, which will allow the transfer.
  • Include WHRC 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. By setting up one today, you can see the impact of your gift and know you made a big difference.
  • Make a gifts of securities or real estate
    Donors often realize significant tax advantages by supporting WHRC via these methods.
  • Matching Gifts
    Gifts to the Center can often be doubled or tripled in size via a donor’s employer matching gift program.
