Your gift to Sunflower Hill makes a positive impact in the lives of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD):

  • $30 buys chicken feed for one month; working with animals gives our participants a sense of responsibility
  • $75 pays for ingredients and supplies for one cooking class at Irby Ranch (these are held twice a month)
  • $100 helps purchase art and craft supplies for Irby Ranch activities
  • $150 pays for 15 people to participate in an Irby Ranch field trip (to museums, bowling, the movies, and more!) – this helps to build social skills and lifelong friendships
  • $200 could provide a scholarship for two participants in the winter Hands-On Garden Program
  • $500 pays for straw mulch in the Garden for one year; this protects the soil and allows for a good growing season
  • $1,000 supports one Garden program participant for one year

Gifts of Stock

The gift of an asset, often through the donation of common stock or mutual fund shares, is a way to contribute to Sunflower Hill while receiving tax benefits. Please contact us if you are interested in donating stock.

Required Minimum Distribution Donation

If you are over 70 1/2 years old and need to take a required minimum distribution from your retirement account each year, you can instead donate the distribution and pay no taxes on that additional income. The provision for tax-free distributions from IRAs to charities like Sunflower Hill was made permanent in December 2015. We encourage you to discuss this philanthropic giving strategy with your tax advisor.
