Do you want to improve the lives of people in our community?

There are many ways you can give:

Gifts-In-Kind
- Another way to support CAPTAIN CHS is through gifts of tangible personal property. These gives can be donated to CAPTAIN's Treasures and Karyl's Kupboard, our Emergency Food & Hygiene Pantry. Questions about items? Please contact us at 518-399-4624 or by clicking here.

Corporate Matching Gifts - DOUBLE YOUR GIFT! You may be able to multiply the value of your gift by participating in a matching gift program provided through an employer such as General Electric or IBM. Contact your personnel to see if they match! Gifts from retirees and spouses may also qualify for a match.

Gifts Of Securities - DO YOU HAVE APPRECIATED STOCKS? These include a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the gift and avoidance of capital gains taxes. For information, please call CAPTAIN CHS at 518-399-4624.

Gifts Of Real Estate - Gifts of homes, farms, and other real property can receive the same tax treatment as gifts of appreciated securities. If property has appreciated over time, its sale may result in a substantial amount of capital gains taxes. If debt-free property is donated, the donor receives a deduction for the appraised value. We encourage real estate gifts that are not subject to liens or restrictions that may affect their market value. For information, please call us at 518-399-4624.


Deductibility

CAPTAIN CHS is a qualified charitable organization and meets the standards and requirements of Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c) (3). All contributions are deductible for federal income tax purposes (subject to statutory limitations) and for federal estate and gift tax purposes.
