Ways of Giving

When you champion the work of CHD, you leave a powerful legacy of support that changes lives.

Support Your Community for Years to Come

However you choose to give, you’re making a difference.

Planned Giving

Planned giving includes gifts from sources such as a will, living trust, gift annuity, life income trust, retirement plan, life insurance, or real estate. This is a wonderful way to combine charitable giving with your financial planning goals. We can handle arrangements of all income levels from an outright bequest in your will to provisions that offer income opportunities and tax benefits.


An endowment is a fund established for a specific purpose. Yours can support the work of CHD. In an endowment fund, the principal is invested and only a portion of the earnings is spent. Any expenditures must go to fund the goals of the endowment. The rest of the earnings are directed back into the fund so that the endowment grows over time.

Event & Program Sponsorships

Sponsoring CHD events and programs not only makes our work possible, it shines a positive light on your organization. Sponsoring or underwriting a local CHD program or event highlights your commitment to building safer, healthier communities for everyone. From kids to seniors, it’s easy to find a cause that’s a perfect fit for your business.

Gifts of Stock, Real Estate, & Property

Many of our donors prefer to make gifts of stocks, bonds, real estate, or similar assets, which beautifully support our programs and services. We encourage you to consult with your financial advisor or tax attorney about such gifts to learn more about tax advantages and other considerations.

United Way

CHD receives funding directly from United Way and through company payroll deduction programs. It’s easy to designate CHD as a donor recipient on your United Way payroll deduction form. Automatic giving, no matter the amount, helps keep our programs steadily funded.

Please talk to your HR department or CHD for more information about ways of giving that work best for you.
