Give to ChildHope

ChildHope is an affiliate of CSBR. Use this link to go to CSBR’s secure server. We will send you an acknowledgement by email or by postal mail for your tax records.

If you are interested in supporting ChildHope with a financial contribution, we offer several donation options. Whatever option you choose, you can count on ChildHope to use your donation wisely.

Please note:

We use a third party service through CSBR to process our credit card transactions. CSBR is the name that will appear on your credit card statement--not ChildHope. THIS helps us keep our costs low and allows us to spend more time and money on our programs!

The online donation page is a secure form where you can designate your gift to ChildHope general fund or special projects as well as add comments and/or tribute information.

Planned giving

Over the years ChildHope has benefited from those who have made special provisions in their Estate Plans to support our work.

Most planned gifts come from individuals who have made a provision in their will or other Estate Plans that designate either a fixed amount or a percentage of their estate. However, there are numerous planned gift options that can have profound tax implications benefiting both your estate and ChildHope. We strongly encourage anyone interested in supporting ChildHope through a planned gift to consult with their financial advisor and/or tax attorney.

Below is a list of some of the options available to donors making a gift through their will to ChildHope.

  1. Outright gifts
  2. Bequests
  3. Annuities
  4. IRA, 401(k) and 403(b) designations

Gifts of stock

Giving a gift of appreciated securities (stock) is a great way to support ChildHope in our goal of helping needy children have a better life. There are two significant benefits to you, the donor, in making these kinds of gifts.

  1. In most instances, you are entitled to deduct the full market value of the stock from your taxes.

  2. You can avoid paying capital gains taxes on the appreciated securities.
How do I make a gift of stock to ChildHope?

Either you or your broker contact ChildHope to inform us of your intention of making a gift to ChildHope using stocks. We will ask you to provide the following information:

  • Your name, address and telephone number
  • The name(s) of the stock that you are donating
  • The number of shares being donated
  1. The simplest way to give a gift of stock to ChildHope is through your broker. Most brokers can transfer the stock directly to ChildHope. We will provide your broker with the needed information to make the transfer.

  2. If you prefer to send the actual stock certificate, please contact ChildHope as well as your broker before sending the certificates since donation of stock certificates requires a special form to ensure that the transfer is accomplished correctly.

  3. You can also designate a gift of stock through our online donation program.

If you have stock that has gone down in value, you can still support ChildHope. To maximize your benefit, sell the stock and contribute the proceeds to ChildHope. In most cases, you can then receive a tax deduction AND a capital loss deduction. To ensure that you qualify for this program, please consult your financial advisor on all tax-related matters.
