Memorial & Honor
Giving a gift in memory of or in honor of someone serves a two-fold purpose. Not only do you commemorate and honor someone but you also help contribute to changing a child's life for the better. All memorial and honor gifts will be acknowledged through a personal note from CCSE to the honored person(s). If you would like to make a tax-deductible contribution in memory of, in tribute or in honor of someone, or to commemorate a birthday, anniversary, or wedding, please contact email@example.com.
Please remember to include the name and address of the honoree, or if you are making a memorial gift, please include the family address of the person being remembered.
Do you have items you would like to donate to our annual Spring Benefit? Gifts of concert or theatre tickets, vacation home stays, unique experiences (hot air balloon ride, ziplining, glamping are appreciated. Interested in sponsoring our events? Please contact us regarding your donation: firstname.lastname@example.org. email@example.com.
Stock or Security Giving
No matter what tax bracket you are in, making gifts of appreciated stock makes sense. Tax benefits for a donor who has owned appreciated stocks for more than one year are two-fold: capital gains tax is avoided upon transfer to CCSE and the donor can receive an income tax charitable deduction for the full market value of the stock on the date of the gift. Depending on your tax bracket and the size of the gift, there may be an opportunity to carry the charitable income tax deduction over several years. To develop a plan please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Bequests and Planned
A planned gift allows a donor to contribute to CCSE over a period of years or as part of an estate plan. Properly designed, it can generate a charitable income tax deduction. It can be designated for a specific purpose or provide unrestricted support for CCSE’s activities. These gifts are made in the form of trusts, bequests or endowments.
N.B. When appreciated securities are donated, you are entitled to a deduction for full value, not just the original cost.
If you would like more information about bequests and planned giving or the benefits of leaving a legacy to CCSE please contact us: email@example.com.
Employer Matching Gifts
Would you like to get your company involved in making a difference in your community? Many corporations match gifts to charitable institutions made by employees. Some will also match the gifts of employee spouses and retired employees.
Check with your HR Department to determine whether your company has a matching gift program.
