Ways to Help
Circle Center is a non-sectarian non-profit serving older adults regardless of sex, race, religion, national origin or location of residence. We rely on your donations and support to help those participants who cannot afford to pay all or some of their care.
Options for giving
Donors may elect to make an outright gift either of cash or securities as the most direct way to give. A gift of appreciated securities, whether publicly traded or from a private company, may provide greater tax advantages than gifts of cash. The donor can deduct the current fair market value as a charitable gift, avoiding capital gains tax on the appreciation.
Donors may choose to pledge to the organization. Pledges can be fulfilled over a period of one to five years. Here, too, gifts to The Annual Fund can be planned and pledged over the course of any special effort or campaign.
Corporate Matching Gifts
Donors can increase community support to the organization through corporate matching gifts programs. You (and/or your spouse) are encouraged to contact your employer or former employer to inquire about a matching gifts program.
There are a variety of planned giving options enabling donors to fulfill their commitment or even consider a larger gift level for the Center. Options promoted include: gifts of stock, real or other personal property; or, such deferred gifts as life insurance, annuities, lead and remainder trusts and bequests.
