Matching Gifts

Increase your donation! As a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the African American Planning Commission is eligible for many employers’ corporate matching gifts programs. Thousands of companies, small and large, have Matching Gift programs which double or even triple individual, tax-deductible contributions made by their employees. Your employer may be one of them!

The process is simple: ask if your company has a Matching Gift program. If so, obtain a matching gift form from your personnel office, HR department, or matching gift coordinator. Fill it out completely and send it along with your contribution to:

African American Planning Commission, Inc.
Attn: Matching Gift Program

P.O. Box 330-707

Brooklyn, New York 11233

We will notify you when your company matches your gift. It’s as easy as that! Your gift and your company’s matching contribution will help the African American Planning Commission reach its goal of creating affordable housing, and job training programs. You can help make a difference — one house, one person, one family at a time!


Bequests and Estate Planning (Planned Giving)

There are many ways to create a meaningful legacy to help ensure the future of the African American Planning Commission — such as including a bequest in your will or living trust — that may also provide tax and financial benefits to you, depending on your circumstances and objectives. To learn more, please contact Matthew Okebiyi, CEO at (718) 218-8216 or


Donations of Appreciated Securities (Stocks)

Using securities that have gone up in value since you bought them is an excellent way to make a gift to AAPCI. In most cases you will be entitled to an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the securities on the date of the gift and will not have to report capital gain income. You may use securities to make your annual gift to the African American Planning Commission, contribute a special gift, or to fund a charitable gift annuity or charitable trust.

To assist you with the transfer of securities please contact Matthew Okebiyi, CEO, at or 718-218-8216.
