Stocks and bonds , when executed correctly, can result in significant tax savings for the donor. We welcome and will recognize all unsolicited donations in honor of a celebratory event or in memory of a loved one .

Planned Giving : Individuals desiring to “Leave a Legacy” of Child Abuse Prevention are welcome to include us in their estate planning through bequests in wills, life estates, and by including the Council in life insurance policies and qualified pension plans. Planned giving can also offer donors a meaningful way to support our mission through a charitable gift annuity or a charitable remainder trust, both of which allow the donor to continue receiving flexible life-income benefits. Please consult with your loved ones and your attorney to make arrangements to “Leave a Legacy” to the Child Abuse Prevention Council. If you would like to learn more about making these arrangements, we will be happy to meet with you and your advisors.

Please notify of any private foundations that you believe are appropriate. We appreciate your knowledge about these matters.
