Introducing The Michael Bolton Charities Legacy Society
The Michael Bolton Charities Legacy Society is a newly established initiative to further the critical, life-changing mission of The Michael Bolton Charities.
The MBC provides assistance to women and children impacted by the devastating effects of domestic violence, sexual, physical and emotional abuse through initiatives and programs that work to end these tragic cycles of violence and abuse.
Established by Michael Bolton as an instrument of compassion and action, The MBC envisions a world free of domestic violence and abuse. For nearly three decades, The Michael Bolton Charities has supported the inspiring work of organizations on the frontlines across the nation and collaborated with innovators and experts to provide and enhance critically needed services that help individuals who all deserve a real chance for a better life.
Now, More Than Ever
This work is more important than ever, as we have seen tragic increases in domestic violence since the onset of the pandemic. The imperative for action has never been more clear.
The Michael Bolton Charities Legacy Society provides new options to support our work, and make an enduring difference in individual lives and the life of our communities. Your participation will enable us to respond to more women and children at risk.
3 New Ways to Share Your Support
- BEQUEST PROGRAM
We have established a Bequest Program whereby you are able to include a provision for The Michael Bolton Charities in your will or estate plans.
- GIFTS OF STOCK
The Michael Bolton Charities is now able to accept gifts of any stock.
- DONOR ADVISED FUND
We have instituted a Donor Advised Fund with Webster Bank. A donor advised fund, much like a charitable investment account, is for the sole purpose of supporting a charitable organization. Donor advised funds are the fastest-growing charitable giving vehicle in the United States according to the National Philanthropic Trust, because they are easy, flexible, and can provide tax advantages for charitable donations. To learn how easy it is to set up, visit American Endowment Foundation and Fidelity Charitable Giving.
Legacy Society Founders
“Legacy” has been described as having an enduring impact and an opportunity to change the world for good. It is defined as “when you are genuinely grounded in making a meaningful, lasting and energizing contribution to humanity by serving a cause greater than your own.”
Individuals utilizing these new options to support the work of The Michael Bolton Charities will be recognized as Founders of The Michael Bolton Charities Legacy Society, and highlighted in a special section on our website.
With tremendous gratitude, we will proudly honor your status as a Founder and leader in the launch of the Legacy Society.
Advancing Our Work
Led by Michael Bolton’s determined advocacy and unrelenting commitment, we continue to advance our efforts, most recently by launching the highly regarded Beyond Trauma: Youth Music Therapy program, working with middle and high school students who have experienced severe trauma.
