A general support donation to CCCD is vital because it allows us to use your gift wherever the current need is greatest. This provides us with the ability to address immediate priorities and to bring direct benefits to children and adults in our care.
Checks should be made payable to The Connecticut Center for Child Development and mailed to:
We accept payment by Visa, MasterCard, or American Express:
To pay by phone: call Lara French at (203) 882-8810, ext. 308
Mutual fund shares can also be donated. The mutual fund company establishes the procedure for transferring shares, however many mutual funds can be transferred electronically, depending on mutual fund rules or brokerage firm procedures.
Please contact Roger Letso, CFO at (203) 882-8810, ext. 311 or email email@example.com with information regarding mutual fund shares that you would like to donate.
With a gift of securities, you will be eligible to take a federal income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift for up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income and will not have to recognize the appreciation as capital gain. For certain taxpayers the donation to an educational organization can have a 50% of AGI limitation. In most instances a donation with a 30% or 50% of AGI deduction limitation qualifies for carryover to succeeding years.
Please note that CCCD is not providing tax advice. Every situation is different so you need to consult with your Tax Advisor as it applies to your individual situation.
For a gift of securities the donation is determined on the day it is donated by using an average of the high and low price on that day. If you decide to make a donation please ask your broker to provide that information so we can issue an accurate Acknowledgement Letter for your donation.
