Corporate Gift Match

Contact your employer for a blank Gift Match application and send to our mailing address.

Wills, Trusts, & Annuities

Many CSED donors have obtained substantial personal and tax benefits by making gifts through wills, trusts, annuities and other forms of deferred giving. In this way they also provide major benefits for the work which CSED is helping to support. Contact Pila Racca to learn more about bequests, life income arrangements or gifts involving real estate or closely held stock.


CSED considers all pledges to be good faith expression of intent, but subject to possible future changes of circumstances and not legally binding, either upon the donor or upon his or her heirs.

Gifts of Securities

If you wish to make a gift of securities, please call, or ask your broker to call or email Pila Racca to request instructions. Or, if you prefer, you may send the unendorsed certificate and, in a separate envelope, a signed stock power, enclosing with both a letter stating the purpose of your gift. Gifts of securities can offer a double tax benefit: a tax deduction based on the current fair market value of the gift and the avoidance of capital gains taxes that would otherwise be assessed on the sale of the property.

End-of-year tax letter

All donations are tax deductible. CSED is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) public charity. If you donate more than $250 in a given calendar year, CSED will send you an end-of-year tax letter with a summary of your donations.
