Support from parents, alumni and friends ensures that we continue to fulfill our mission and vision for years to come. Below is a list of options you might consider when making a gift to Chance. If you are interested in learning more about these gift opportunities, or if you have already designated Chance as a beneficiary, please contact us so we can recognize your generous contribution.
Gifts of Cash
Gifts of cash may be made either outright or as a multi-year pledge. These gifts are fully deductible up to a maximum of 50 percent of the donor’s adjusted gross income.
Gifts of Securities
Gifts of securities may be made either outright or as multi-year pledges. Such gifts allow the donor to receive a charitable deduction for the full fair-market value of the security while avoiding both capital gains and alternative minimum taxes on the increased value of the security.
Gifts of tangible property such as real estate, art work, books, vehicles, equipment and furniture may be made outright to the school. Donors may avoid the capital gains tax and receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the property.
Many corporations will match gifts made by their employees and associates. Check with your Human Resources Department to determine whether your employer sponsors such a program.
Chance School also accepts other types of gifts including Gifts of Life Insurance, Charitable Gift Annuities, Charitable Lead Trusts, Chartable Remainder Unitrusts, Estate and Planned Gifts, Bequests and Gifts in Kind.
Please consult your financial adviser or attorney to determine your ideal type of giving as well as to learn about the added benefits, such as tax deductions, for your generous support.
