Ways to Give
There are many ways you can support our care for children and families. Here are some helpful guidelines on the most common types of gifts.
You can make a gift via credit card on our secure online donation form. For gifts via check, please make your check payable to “Center for Child and Family Health, Inc.” and mail it to:
Center for Child & Family Health
1121 W Chapel Hill St, Suite 100
Durham NC 27701
If needed, our Federal Tax Identification Number is 58-1446309.
Establishing an automatic gift on a monthly basis is a great way to provide ongoing, sustaining support for CCFH. To set up a recurring gift, select “Monthly” from the Donation Frequency dropdown menu on our online donation form.
If your employer has a matching gift program, you can double your support for CCFH. Request a matching gift form your company’s human resources department. If asked to send the form to the benefiting charity, you may mail it to the address above or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gifts in Honor/Memory
We welcome gifts made in honor or memory of someone important to you. Please indicate the person’s name in the online donation form or the subject line of your check.
If you would like us to notify the honoree or their family of the gift, please provide a name and mailing address. We will not disclose the amount of your gift in our letter to the honoree.
Gifts of Items
CCFH is able to accept donation of some items and goods for meeting material needs of the families we serve. Please contact the Development Office at (919) 385-0738 to discuss the in-kind gift you have in mind.
Our most common needs are toys and childcare supplies, and we can provide you with a wish list of items specifically requested by our staff. Donations of food must be commercially prepared and packaged in order for us to provide them to families we serve.
Gifts of Stock
Giving stock can have tax advantages, especially if the stock has increased significantly in value since purchase. If you would like to make a gift of stock, please contact the Development Office at (919) 385-0738 for brokerage information.
Please note: it is our policy to sell gifts of stock immediately upon receipt.
IRA Charitable Rollover
If you are age 70½ or older, you are allowed to transfer up to $100,000 directly from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) every year. This counts toward your required minimum distribution, and you will not need to claim it as taxable income on your tax return for the year.
To make a gift to CCFH out of your IRA, confer with your financial advisor or account manager.
