More Ways to Donate
Your donations make our work possible. Join the Catholic Community Services family by donating in a way that works best for you.
Annuities and other Life Income Gifts
Receive immediate tax benefits and guaranteed income for yourself and/or your beneficiary. A charitable gift annuity, charitable remainder trust, or similar gift provides you and/or your beneficiary with income for life. At the end of your life, Catholic Community Services will receive the remainder of the annuity or trust.
Stocks and Bonds
Save income tax and avoid capital gains tax by transferring appreciated stocks or bonds to the CCS Foundation.
Make CCS Foundation a full or partial beneficiary of your life insurance policy. It’s a simple way to make a significant gift.
Turn any portion of your IRA, 401(k) or 403(b) into a tax-saving charitable gift by naming CCS Foundation as the beneficiary. Funds received by you or your heirs through your IRA are taxable income, but IRA funds distributed to charity are not taxed.
Bank Account Designations: Transfer on Death (TOD) or Payable on Death (POD) Accounts
Avoid probate court. Assets in these accounts transfer immediately to CCS without being subject to the court proceedings.
Real Estate: A Life Estate
Deed your home, vacation property, or condominium to the CCS Foundation, and you’ll retain the right to live in or receive income from the property for as long as you or your beneficiaries live. You’ll also reduce capital gains, inheritance, and estate taxes and be eligible for an income tax deduction as well. Arrangements must be made with CCS Foundation in advance for acceptance of any real estate donation.
Donate furniture or appliances in good working order, or donate your professional services. Your gifts of goods (items) and services are meaningful and appreciated. Please contact us to discuss your gift.
Make your gift to Catholic Community Services even more valuable. Many corporations offer matching gift programs in which the company matches donations made by employees. Please inquire with your employer.
