We Give Hope

The mission of The Center for Family Support Foundation is to support the incredible programs and services of the organization. When you make a donation, you give a gift that impacts thousands of individuals with developmental and other related disabilities. Your donation makes it possible for an individual with developmental disabilities to receive the care and program support they need.  We encourage you to explore the ways you can get involved, and make a difference today!

 

 

Memorial Gifts

Make a donation in memory of a loved one or in lieu of flowers, to celebrate his or her life while also ensuring that our service recipients receive the best programs and services possible. The Center for Family Support will send an acknowledgement to the family to let them know a gift has been made in memory of their loved one.

A Gift in Honor

You can honor someone special and let them know just how much they mean to you by honoring them with a gift to The Center for Family Support in their name. We will send an acknowledgement letter to your site supervisor, parent, loved one, caregiver, or any other special person that you would like to honor, letting them know of your thoughtful gesture.

Gifts for Special Events/Occasion Giving

Whether you’re celebrating a wedding, baby shower, anniversary, baptism, birthday, graduation, bar/bat mitzvah or workplace event, your special occasion donation to The Center for Family Support will impact our work for years to come.

Corporate and Foundation Support

Foundation financial support is vital to furthering The Center for Family Support mission.

 Matching Gifts

Many companies offer a matching gift program to their employees, employees’ spouses or retirees. Through these programs, a company will match charitable contributions made by their employees to The Center for Family Support, a nonprofit organization.

For example, a donor who works for a company with a matching gift program decides to make a $100 gift to The Center for Family Support. The donor’s company will match the $100 gift to the Center, for a total of $200!

Plan a Future Gift

Gifts of Stocks and Bonds

 A gift of your securities, including your stocks or bonds, is an easy way for you to make a gift. By making a gift of your appreciated securities, you can avoid paying capital gains tax that would otherwise be due if you sold these assets.


Gifts of Retirement Assets

A gift of your retirement assets, such as a gift from your IRA, 401k, 403b, pension or other tax deferred plan, is an excellent way to make a gift. By making a gift of your retirement assets, you will help further our work.


Gifts of Real Estate

A gift of your real property (such as your home, vacation property, vacant land, farmland or ranch or commercial property) can make a great gift. If you own appreciated real property, you can avoid paying capital gains tax by making a gift to us.


Gifts of Insurance

A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a gift to us. If your life insurance policy is no longer needed or will no longer benefit your survivors, consider making a gift and help further our mission.

  

Gifts that Pay Income

Life-income gifts that provide donors with an income stream, tax savings, and the satisfaction of helping those we serve.


Will and Estate Planning

A charitable bequest in your will or trust allows you to make a contribution to The Center for Family Support without affecting your cash flow during your lifetime.

If you would like to remember The Center for Family Support in your will, the proper legal wording for a bequest is:

“I give and bequeath to The Center for Family Support (either the actual amount or percentage if it is a residuary gift) for (the purpose of or to fund) OR the most urgent need as identified by the board of trustees.”
