Individual Donations

Donate online through Classy, the world’s largest secure fundraising platform for social good organizations. You will have access to your donation records for tax time and your donation tax receipt will come to you via email.

The most impactful way to donate is to set up an automatic monthly donation to continually support our delivery of integrative medicine, food and housing for our clients battling cancer. With a simple one-time set-up, your monthly donation will automatically charge to your credit card and be added up into an annual tax receipt.

For 25 years, the Charlotte Maxwell Clinic has provided integrative cancer care to low income women, free of charge. Your ongoing support is critical to helping underserved women with cancer. Please help us keep going another 25 years!

You can also mail us a check:

Charlotte Maxwell Clinic
610 16th Street, Suite 426
Oakland, CA 94612
We will send your donation tax receipt via postal mail. Many of our donors honor or memorialize a loved one or ask friends to celebrate birthdays and special occasions with a gift to CMC. We are happy to send additional acknowledgement letters on your behalf.

Your tax-deductible gift will:

$10       Supply acupuncture needles for 5 treatments

Workplace Giving

The place where you work may have many giving programs to support your favorite non-profit organizations. Here are examples of programs that support CMC:

Automatic Payroll Deduction

Most all automated payroll services offer charity accounts for employees. Your designated donation amount can be deducted directly from your paycheck and the payroll processor handles the donation processing and W-2 tax reporting. All you need is our EIN number: 94-3116456.

Employee Matching Programs

Many companies offer matching gift programs that will double, even triple a donation’s value. Even more, your company may also match gifts from spouses, retirees, and board members. A list of corporate matching programs consistently donating to CMC is on our Supporters page. If you don’t see your employer, please contact your human resources department.

United Way

You can also donate to us through your local United Way affiliate. Simply write in Charlotte Maxwell Clinic as the designee through your workplace-giving program. Our tax ID (also known as Employee Identification Number or EIN) is 94-3116456.

Donate Stock

Make a charitable gift to CMC in the form of a Stock Transfer.

For stock held in brokerage accounts, your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct transfer to CMC’s Charles Schwab account. Giving a gift of publicly traded stock that has increased in value and that you have owned for more than one year may provide better tax benefits than giving cash.

Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock. You may also save on brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock. For more information, please read the Schwab Charitable Appreciated Securities Fact Sheet.

Please fill in the writeable PDF CMC Stock Gift Form and follow instructions to formalize and execute your charitable gift. Then download your completed PDF and email it to ycharles@charlottemaxwell.org. Or print the form and fax or mail it to us. This will inform CMC of the proposed donation and ensure that you receive a prompt receipt of your gift for your tax records.
