- A donation letter is provided for your taxes at the end of each calendar year.
- Secure software ensures your donation information is safe and processed consistently each month.
- Easy upgrades – just contact us to increase your support.
How do I sign up?
Support SAB with a monthly gift by signing up on our monthly donation page. Alternatively, you can call the SAB development office at 212-769-6614. Do not send credit card information via email.
How do I update or make changes to my monthly gift?
To update your monthly gift amount or your credit card details, please call us at 212-769-6614. We do not recommend submitting a new monthly donation through the website, as this may result in you being double-charged.
How do I cancel or suspend my monthly gift?
To cancel or suspend your monthly giving, please call us at 212-769-6614.
How do I update my contact information?
To update your personal information, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 212-769-6614.
What about my membership benefits?
Your membership benefits will align with the level of your total twelve-month giving. For example, if you join with a gift of $25 per month, you will receive benefits corresponding to the Partner level, which requires annual giving totaling $250-$499. Benefits are available instantly and are not “accrued”.
I want my gift to be fully tax-deductible. How can I indicate this?
When signing up online or by phone, you have the option to indicate your preference for your giving to be fully tax-deductible. Online, please mark the corresponding checkbox in the “Additional Gift Information” section. This will mean that you will not receive membership benefits that have an associated cost.
When will my card be charged?
Your card will be charged immediately when submitted, and then on the 1st of each following month.
What about processing fees?
SAB incurs the processing fees for all credit card gifts. Consider giving a little more each month to help cover these expenses.
I want to increase my impact even more by having my employer match my monthly gift. How can I do this?
Many employers offer gift matching programs, where they make a corporate gift to a non-profit you support at specified ratio to your personal giving. To sign up for your employer’s matching gift program, contact your employer’s HR or corporate giving office to submit your SAB giving details. For monthly gifts, you should make your employer aware of each monthly charge.
