Securities

We accept gifts of mutual funds, closely held securities and publicly traded securities. Securities are a great way to make a gift and avoid paying capital gains taxes. We recommend you discuss donating securities with your attorney or tax advisor.

Pledges

Pledges allow you to make a contribution with payments spread over time. Reminders will be sent to you about your commitment on a schedule that is established by you.

Gifts-in-Kind

Gifts-in-kind can be supplies, furnishings or items that reduce operating costs. This includes tickets, merchandise or gift certificates for use as prizes, or auction or raffle items at special events.

Wills and Trusts

Gift through a bequest in your will or trust by establishing a charitable gift annuity or other planned gift. Notify the DuPage County Care Center Foundation of a planned gift arrangement and receive Legacy Society membership. We recommend that planned gift provisions be discussed with your attorney and tax advisor.

In order to assure that the DuPage Care Center Foundation will benefit, you may use one of the following statements:

  • I give _____% of my estate to the DuPage Care Center Foundation.
  • I give the remainder of my estate to the DuPage Care Center Foundation.
  • I give $ _________ to the DuPage Care Center Foundation.
  • I give my assets to my spouse if my spouse survives me. If he/she predeceases me, I give my assets to the DuPage Care Center Foundation.

Life Insurance

Life insurance policies can name the DuPage Care Center Foundation (DPCCF) as the beneficiary in full or in part. Whole life insurance can be gifted to the DPCCF by naming the Foundation as the policy’s irrevocable owner and beneficiary. Gifts of life insurance policies require charitable contributions from the donor to the Foundation in the amount of the premiums, including unscheduled premiums, which may become due.

Retirement Accounts

Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) or company plans may be left to the DPCCF by naming us as beneficiary.

Gifts of Real Estate

A residence, vacation home, farm, acreage or vacant lot may have appreciated in value through the years. By gifting the property, you avoid capital gains tax and receive a charitable deduction for the market value.
