Gifts to Cathedral Ridge are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Outright Gifts and Pledges
Your gift of cash makes the most immediate impact and allows you to receive full tax benefits to the extent allowed by law. We encourage you to also consider a multi-year pledge to maximize the power of your gift. Most pledges are for a three-year term, but, depending on the size of the gift, other terms can be arranged.
Gifts of Securities
Making a gift of appreciated securities can sometimes provide larger tax benefits. By donating appreciated securities, you may claim the current market value of the shares as the gift amount and thereby avoid capital gains taxes.
Many employers match their employees’ charitable giving. If your employer does, please ask your HR department for the appropriate forms and we’ll help you increase the impact of your contribution.
Cathedral Ridge welcomes grant awards from personal, private, and public foundations.
Shared gifts allow donors to pool their resources and make larger gifts than they might make individually.
Donors wishing to increase the impact of their individual gifts should consider making a Challenge Gift. Challenge Gifts require a matching component from other donors, thereby generating two or three times the amount of the original gift. These types of gifts provide visibility to the original donor, and allow matching donors to help generate increased support.
Cathedral Ridge has a bequest and deferred gift program. Donors interested in this option should consult with their attorneys and financial advisors.
