Donate by Planned Giving:
Estate planning and planned giving are about finding ways to make charitable gifts from your estate while realizing financial benefits for yourself or your loved ones. It allows you to designate how you would like your assets disposed of if something happens to you. There are a number of ways to donate through Planned Giving such as naming CCCS/SC in your will, establishing a charitable trust that names CCCS/SC as a beneficiary, or naming CCCS/SC as owner and beneficiary of a paid-up life insurance policy. To learn more about Planned Giving, contact your financial advisor or attorney and then call the CCCS/SC at (330) 762-2961, x220.
Donate Your Stocks:
Giving a gift of publicly traded stock that has increased in value and that you have owned for more than one year may provide greater tax benefits than giving cash. Contact your financial advisor to determine if donating your stock to CCCS/SC is the right option for you.
Many of our programs and participants are in great need of general or personal items. CCCS/SC gladly accepts these “in-kind” donations. Call (330)762-2961, x220 to arrange for pick-up or delivery.
