Legacy gifts are the cornerstone on which the CHSSF endowment has been built. Legacy gifts enable donors to establish a meaningful and permanent connection to the CHSSF. The gift of appreciated securities-stocks, bonds, or mutual funds that have grown in value-can be an easy way of making a contribution. They are a sensible philanthropic investment as they can provide immediate and valuable tax benefits. We will gladly work with you to find an option that is right for you.
Questions about legacy giving can be directed to our vice president, Brigid Casey, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (973) 762-6926
