Depending on the campaign, your contribution can go towards Child’s Rights advocacy, abuse and neglect prevention measures, therapeutic programs for children that have survived physical abuse, to providing all of our children with recreation opportunities, allowing the children to have new clothing and shoes, and proving all of the children with 3 well rounded meals, a warm bed to sleep in, shelter and safety. Make your campaign contribution today!
Gifts can be designated for any purpose depending on the wishes of the donor. You and your honored individual will be personally acknowledged and recognized for your generous gift. Remember to indicate the purpose of the contribution and with the name and address of the honored individual.
If your company provides opportunities to match your donation, obtain their Matching Gift Form and submit it with your contribution! With a matching gift from your company, your generous donation to Whaley Children’s Center can double, impacting twice as many youth, without any extra effort!
Capital gifts to Whaley Children’s Center can also be given for endowment growth.
If your sales from marketable securities, which can bring long-term capital gain, are donated to Whaley Children’s Center, your outright gift could mean a significant tax savings.
You are not required to pay capital gains on the appreciation. As a result, the actual cost to you as a donor is less than the value of your gift.
In planning your estate, please remember us and the legacy that you can leave behind with all the children. An outright bequest can reduce taxation of your estate. Consult with your tax specialist and contact us!
