Other Ways to Donate
Corporate Matching Gifts
When you make a matching gift, you can double or triple the impact of your contribution!
Here how to do it:
1) Find out if your employer will match your gift by checking your company's website or contact your company's Personnel Manager or Matching Gifts Program Officer.
2) If your employer matches employee contributions, request a matching gift form, fill it out and send it to CCSFSC, Inc. You can send the matching gift form in with your donation or at any time thereafter.
3) We will complete our portion of the matching gift form and return it to your employer. The matching funds will be sent directly to us.
4) Your contribution and your employer's matching contribution make a big difference in the lives of the homeless.
Bequests - Gifts Made Through Your Will or Living Trust
To make a donation that will impact the lives of the homeless for years to come, you can contribute through a will, trusts, or life insurance gifts. A bequest may take several forms. It can be a specific sum, a percentage of your estate, or the remainder of your estate after expenses and gifts to loved ones. Living trusts are a popular choice because the terms of a living trust, unlike a will, can be put into effect immediately upon your death, bypassing probate and keeping the terms private. In certain cases of larger estates, a bequest to charity may reduce the value of the estate enough to minimize or eliminate the estate tax.
