Ways a cash contribution could be used for: daily operations, program scholarships, new program development, technology improvements, education services, our long-term sustaining fund, and many others.

3. GIFTS OF SECURITIES: Eliminate tax on long-term capital gains by contributing long-term appreciated stock or other securities.

4. GIFTS OF RETIREMENT ASSETS: Avoid taxation of IRAs or other retirement plans by naming the Children's Aid Society Foundation as the beneficiary of your retirement account after your lifetime.

5. RETAINED LIFE ESTATE: Give ownership of your residence or farm now, but continue to live there for your lifetime.

6. GIFT OF REAL ESTATE: Make a gift of property no longer needed to the Children's Aid Society Foundation and generate an income tax deduction.
