We also accept donations through both of our Facebook pages: Friends of NorthLakes Community Clinic and NorthLakes Community Clinic. With this medium, you are donating through Facebook’s Network for Good nonprofit, which is a pass through fund. Facebook sends a check to NorthLakes Community Clinic, free of fees.

AmazonSmile: By downloading the Amazon Smile app on your smartphone or laptop and designating NorthLakes Community Clinic, Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchase. We are grateful for our Amazon donations. We are also grateful to all of our locally, family owned businesses who also donate, some cash and in-kind items to our silent auctions or sponsor events.  We encourage local purchases from our neighbors yet recognize some items are only available through Amazon.

Other Ways of Giving Include:

Sustaining Gifts Sustaining gifts are automatically charged to the credit or debit card of your choice every month. The easiest and most convenient way to increase the impact of your gift to NorthLakes. Your support will continue at the same amount until you tell us differently, and you can make a change or cancel at any time. To enroll, select the time period on the donation schedule when making your gift

Corporate matching gifts are a type of philanthropy in which companies financially match donations that their employees make to nonprofit organizations. When an employee makes a donation, they’ll request the matching gift from their employer, who then makes their own donation. Ask your employer if they match gifts.

Give Through a Donor-Advised Fund. Donor-advised funds are charitable giving accounts, offered by community foundations, Fidelity Investments and other sponsoring organization, that are designed to be accessible, simple and less expensive alternatives to setting up a private foundation. Put your money in, let the sponsoring institution manage it, and then you make a donation. There is much to like about DFAs since they provide easy donating plus a possible charitable tax deduction.

Give Your Time Volunteering doesn’t cost a dime, and many believe you get back more than you give. More volunteers than ever, in all age groups and from all backgrounds, are finding their way to NorthLakes where our providing equitable health care inspires them. We have community advisory committees and always need event volunteers.

Tributes and Memorials A gift to NorthLakes is a wonderful way to honor a special occasion or to celebrate a life. A letter notifying the honored or the family of the deceased will be sent immediately upon receipt of your gift. The amount of the gift will not be disclosed. Make a tribute gift online or by mail (note in the memo field) If you would like Tribute/memorial envelopes for memorials or events, please call (715) 685-2200 ext. 1340.

Gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds or other securities. These gifts receive a tax deduction based on the value of the security on the date of the gift. With long-term appreciated securities (those held longer than 12 months), you will receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full fair-market value of your gift and avoid paying capital gains tax on the appreciation.

$300 Universal Charitable Deduction The CARES Act creates a $300 “nonitemizer” deduction for 2020. This deduction is in full effect as of Friday, March 27, 2020, and will apply to donations made for all of 2020.

  • Only for people who do not itemize their taxes
  • Donors who itemize their taxes are eligible for the existing charitable deduction
  • Only for cash donations (not in kind and not for stocks)
  • Can be used by the charity for any purpose (not limited to COVID-19 relief efforts)
