Non-Cash Gifts

Gifts of Stock

By donating publicly traded stock to CCTC you will win two-fold. Not only are you helping your community, but you will also receive tax breaks. Should a contributor hold the stock for more than one year prior to donating it to CCTC, said contributor will avoid payment of capital gains tax on the stock’s value and will receive an income tax charitable deduction for the full market value of the price of the stock.

In-Kind Gifts

In-kind gifts, such as donated items for a live or silent auction, office furniture, appliances, etc. are convenient to make. They’re counted at full-market value as established by the contributor and agreed upon by CCTC.


Donors often think about CCTC when they’re planning their estate, especially if they’ve supported our operations regularly, believe strongly in CCTC’s mission, and want to leave a legacy that will foster our future fiscal well-being.

Remembering CCTC in your will, a trust, gift of life insurance, gift of real estate, or through an annuity offer a convenient way to help us continue to thrive and make a long-term, positive impact on the lives of children and families in the Philadelphia region.

Life Income Gifts

You can transfer cash or stock to CCTC and establish a Charitable Remainder Trust or Annuity Trust that provides a five percent or greater annual return. This income would be paid to you, after which the asset would be distributed to CCTC. This meaningful and tax-deductible donation to CCTC benefits both parties.

Life Insurance

You can donate a life insurance policy that you own but no longer need to CCTC. By making CCTC the owner and beneficiary of the policy you will qualify for federal income tax deduction equal to the policy’s cash value. At the time of your death your estate will be entitled to a charitable deduction when the policy’s proceeds are paid to CCTC.

Gifts of Real Estate

A residence, vacation home, farm or vacant piece of land could be donated to CCTC. If you are in possession of a piece of land you’re not sure what to do with, donate it to CCTC, avoid sizable capital gains tax, gain a tax-deductible donation on your return and have an impact on children and families living in the Philadelphia region.


CCTC qualifies for the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program, which authorizes tax credits for businesses that make contributions to educational improvement or scholarship organizations. Your business can make charitable contributions to CCTC based on the amount of Pennsylvania state taxes you pay.
