Other Ways To Give

Thanks for your interest in supporting your home for music discovery! There are many ways to give to WXPN.

Other ways to give include:

Donor-Advised Funds (DAFs)

Donors may recommend or direct gifts to WXPN via UPenn through donor-advised funds or private foundations. When requesting that your DAF disperse a gift to WXPN, you will need to provide your financial institution with the following information:
  • UPenn’s Tax ID/EIN: 23-1352685
  • Payable to: “The Trustees of the University of Pennsylvania”
  • Designated to: WXPN
Because the donor receives an immediate tax benefit when funds are given to their DAF, donors may not be eligible to receive all member benefits or gifts in return for recommending/directing their DAF to disperse funds. Donors cannot receive any member benefits or gifts that would reduce the tax-deductible value of the gift, since they have already received a tax deduction for the full value. Please contact your financial institution or advisor, if you have any other questions about your DAF.

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. Matching gifts from donor’s employers can double or triple the size of a gift and are an important source of support for WXPN. Click here to find out if your company has a matching gift policy. If your employer is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send the completed form with instructions to direct the funds to WXPN to:

UPenn Matching Gifts Program
Suite 300 - GAA&R
2929 Walnut Street
Philadelphia, PA 19104-5099

NOTE: You must designate that the matching gift should be directed to WXPN.

In-Kind Donations

WXPN occasionally accepts in-kind donations to support our fundraising efforts and nonprofit public service, which may be tax deductible. Past examples of in-kind donations that we’ve been grateful to receive include auction items, professional services, catering for events, and facilities for special donor events. We have also accepted such items as trade for underwriting sponsorships; however, trade is not tax-deductible.

Auction

WXPN holds an online auction every spring with a wide range of items including signed albums, tour posters, experiences with WXPN hosts, tickets to sporting events, professional services, and vacation getaways. Starting bids range from $5 to $1,000, so there’s something for everyone in the auction. You can support WXPN by donating auction items and bidding on auction items.

Volunteering

Donate A Vehicle

Drive more of the programs you love when you donate a vehicle to WXPN. It’s easy, costs you nothing, and the proceeds support programs like World Cafe and Funky Friday. Plus, you may qualify for a tax benefit! All you need is a clear title, and we’ll take care of the rest, including convenient pickup and a receipt, at no cost to you.

More information:
  • Your vehicle must have an engine and be towable, but it does not need to be running to donate it.
  • You do not have to be with the vehicle at the time of pick-up. Call us to make arrangements.
  • The only paperwork you need is a signed, clear title without a lien. Please have your title when you give us a call to donate your vehicle.
  • You will be mailed a receipt for the amount your donated vehicle brought in at auction about 8 weeks after you donate your vehicle.
  • If the proceeds from the sale of the vehicle exceeds $500, you will receive an IRS Form 1098-C stating the gross amount the vehicle sold for. If the claimed value of the donated vehicle exceeds $500, the taxpayer is limited to claiming the gross proceeds as a tax deduction.
