"Thank you for your patience and understanding. Thank you for the endless hours of listening. Thank you for your wonderful negotiating skills and your willingness to put yourself in the middle.  Thank you for picking up the pieces when things fell apart and for teaching us how to plan and prepare in order to prevent things from falling apart. Thank you for your honesty and your kindness. Thank you for sharing your wisdom. Thank you for helping us to better understand our own child and for helping others to understand and appreciate him too. People often comment "…what a terrific young man your son is….he is so polite…thoughtful…helpful…you’ve done such a nice job raising him…” Little do they know that it took a village to raise this child. Thank you for being a part of our village and thank you for helping our son to become the wonderful person that he is today.”

Giving to CTDS

There are many ways that you can contribute to CTDS. Below are just a few opportunities that are available to you. For further information about gifts and giving, or to receive information about Planned Giving.

  • Memorials
    These gifts are made to remember a loved one, family member, or friend.
  • Gifts of Honor
    These gifts are given to celebrate the accomplishments of others and can range from birthdays and anniversaries to graduations.
  • Annual Gifts
    These gifts are normally in response to a mail solicitation and are contributions for the current, unrestricted use of the program.
  • Matching Gifts
    Check with your employer to see if they will match your gift to CTDS.
  • Gifts of Appreciated Securities
    This is a tax wise way to support our program. When making a gift of appreciated stocks, bonds, and stock options, the donor pays no tax on the capital gains.
  • Gifts of Real Estate
    Real estate may be contributed as an outright gift or to finance a planned gift.
  • Gift of Personal Property
    These gifts can include works of art, manuscripts, rare books, antique furnishings, jewelry and other personal items.
  • Planned Gifts
    Planned gifts allow you to make a significant gift while maintaining financial security for you and your family. Bequests, retirement plan designations, gifts of life insurance, gift annuities, and charitable trusts are just a few types of planned gifts. These gifts often provide attractive tax advantages and other financial benefits.
  • Bequests
    For many, this is the most significant gift that can be made. A bequest removes assets from the donor's estate and reduces federal taxes.
  • Retirement Plan Gifts
    A donor can make a deferred gift by naming CTDS beneficiary of his or her retirement plan.
  • Life Insurance Gifts
    A donor can name CTDS as a beneficiary on a life insurance policy.
  • Gift Annuities
    A gift annuity is both a charitable contribution and an investment. The annuity provides guaranteed fixed income for the donor's lifetime and/or for the lifetime of another beneficiary.
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
    A charitable remainder trust generates income for the donor that is fixed or that fluctuates with market conditions and the growth of the trust. Income may continue through the donor's lifetime or for a set term and benefit a charity upon death.
  • Charitable Lead Trusts
    A charitable lead trust is for a donor who would like to give to CTDS but also wants to pass assets on to family members. CTDS receives income interest for a period of years or for a period of someone's lifetime, after that time the trust reverts to the donor or the donor's beneficiaries.
